    Maybe something will happen in this one.

  • DeTuinman

    Will they finnaly make it scary, have good actors and have a story that does not involve nothing, loud noise, door opens and some more nothing?

    Weakest horror franchise ever…

    The mind is like a parachute…it only works when it is open.

      Final Destination, Saw, Resident Evil: Three of the weakest most unnecessary franchises in history.

      Paranormal Activity? Not even close.

    Suggestion #1: Summer Glau

    Suggestion #2: Lesbian ghost demon thing

    Suggestion #3: 3-D!

    I can smell the big dollars rolling in right now! KA-FUCKING-CHING!

  • Terminal

    I’ll keep an open mind for now.

  • Sirand

    I’ll give this the benefit of the doubt, considering the sequel was so well done.

  • LSD Zombie

    Really? Come on now, enough is enough. You can only stretch an idea so much before it finally breaks.

    • Uncle Creepy

      The same can be said for any franchise but I had the same reaction when Part 2 was announced and that one turned out surprisingly well. I’m curious to see where it goes from here.

        The toilet?

        “Well, for one thing, I think he was probably a closet homosexual who did a lot of cocaine. That whole Yale thing.”

        • Vanvance1

          A haunted toilet that sucks those who dare sit into the bowels of a SHITTY HELL!

          Buts lets not assume Paramount is just doing this for the money. Here is the likely conversation between Paramount execs that led to this mind bending concept.

          Exec 1: Y’know, I’ve watched both Paranormal Activity 1 and 2 a hundred times or so and I just don’t think the story is done. I mean there’s so much more to say. The geopolitical ramifications alone are overwhelming.

          Exec 2: Exactly! With this series we can explore the boundaries of horror as a genre… then we can stretch, nay, break those bonds to create a work of art that will live throughout the ages!

          Exec 1: Finally a chance to make a difference… fuck the bottom line. I’m willing to risk another 3 million studio dollars… and even if we only make 70 or 80 million more on that investment it’s the art that matters!

          Exec 2: Fuck yeah, man! It’s all about being original, pushing boundaries and delivering pure quality! Hallelujah!

          Yay studio execs, you guys rule! Maybe you could get some more remakes going too!

          • Gus Bjork

            So, producing a Paranormal Activity film is like a bragging about your big brave ass bets but not telling anyone they’re on a nickel slot machine?

            Not bitching. I liked the first (although I didn’t find it scary at all) and hope to see the second soon. But the finacial incentive in keeping the series going is pretty clear. Nothing wrong with that.

      • LSD Zombie

        True, but not all franchises have as thin of a plot as PA 1&2. Who’ll be terrorized next? The grandparents? And they’ve already established the demon’s intent. They should have saved that revelation for the third film.
