Paranormal Activity 3 Coming to a Theater Near You

Paranormal Activity 3 is set for wide release this weekend. I loved the first two movies so I'm looking forward to the third installment. This time, we go back to the 80s and see the two sisters, Katie and Kristi, as kids. When they're not playing with Teddy Ruxpin dolls and video cameras, they're being terrorized by some malevolent spirit.

The reviews are out and they're good for the most part. The LA Times reports that directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman continue the thrills with crafty cinematography:

Throughout, though, there is a newfound wit and invention. The blocking used to get characters (and scares) in and out of shots feels lively and fun, making the jolts hit harder and the thrills giddier.

I'll miss seeing it in Philadelphia where the audience reactions and comments were as entertaining as the film was. Tucson's audience will probably be a little more low-key. As long as I leave the theater jumpy and looking around every corner like some unseen force is going to bitch slap me, it will all be good.
