Has Katie grown bored with being “the evil chick” in these homegrown creepouts? Perhaps a subsequent film will reveal the truth. For now, her presence is missed.
Additionally and more alarmingly, with this film the “Paranormal” flicks succumb to self-parody, though it wasn’t a far fall.
Still, when audience members are hollering for a video-obsessed guy to “put the camera down!” as he’s running around a house, perhaps it’s time to rethink the gimmick. so are you ready to Download Paranormal Activity 3 Movie?
Here, the most photographed family on record - sorry, Kardashians - are shown in September 1988, when the California home of grade-school age Katie (Chloe Cserngey), her sister Kristi (Jessica Tyler Brown) and their mom, Julie (Lauren Bittner), first comes under siege from things that go bump in front of the lens.

Julie’s new husband, Daniel (Brian Boland), is the first to notice that doors slam and things clunk whenever the girls talk to their imaginary friend “Tobey.”
We never see Tobey, but Kristie says he’s tall - apparently, tall enough to bump into hanging lights - and at one point, some dust falls onto his shape, revealing an ethereal stovepipe hat. Did the kid mean “Abe,” as in Lincoln?
One complaint: aren’t spirits, ghosts and other ghastly elements supposed to stay in one place? Without giving away too much, Toby is a mobile ghost/poltergeist, which is a little unsettling. There’s a reason that The Flying Dutchman (a haunted ship last seen in the 1940s) sails forever around Cape Hatteras, not the I&M Canal. Likewise, Resurrection Mary haunts the Willowbrook Ballroom, not Studio 54 in New York City. Ghosts stay put!
But if ghosts do move around, how do they get from one place to another? I can’t imagine a vaporous creature driving around the clunky 1988 Datsun that appears here. Perhaps they take Metra? Maybe that ill-advised, 40 percent Metra fare hike is to appease violent, chair-tossing ghosts that take up the seats normally reserved for commuters.Watch Paranormal Activity 3 Online.
