Atrocious is been shown at FrightFest but I can only go for 1 day so will miss it!
It does look like it could be interesting.

Default Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

Who else is looking forward to this film. I loved the first one and thought the second was good too. Saw the trailer for the 3rd film last night and it was very creepy in a Insidious sort of way. I hope it's as scary as Insidious and the story looks interesting set as a prequel. I'm glad the wave of commerical horror has shifted from Saw and Hostel gorefests to fright films it might make some pretty decent films come out, of course it will also open the doors for lots of bad ones.

I'm not a fan of these movies. They're no scarier than those viral emails that get you to stare at something for a while before a scary face appears and a huge sound shrieks through the speakers. The best thing about the first was the actress whose generous rack distracted me whenever she was on screen.
That said, the second one had some interesting ideas on expanding the mythos. I reckon I'll see the third one at some point, just for the hell of it.

I'm not particularly a fan but my wife is so no doubt I'll be seeing this on the day of release. I did enjoy the first 2, just didn't think they were scary at all

It seems to stretch plausibility a little that when the 2 sisters werre young this was all documented on camers, jus tlike it was when they both grow up. I'm not sure I'll be able to get past that somehow to be honest

Haha I get your point but the crappy reasons for Jason coming back are part of the appeal and they're grounded in the context of the supernatural. The Paranormal Activity thing is the same as Saw as far as I'm concerned, stretching plausibility to breaking point for the sake of keeping a franchise alive and presenting ideas which oculd never have been part of the filmaker's original intention.

I get the feeling it will follow isidious for scares. The 2nd one wasn't as great as first. I like the franchise. I feel they could take it anywhere. It scared me, the first one as I didn't know what it was and was really surprised. I loved it. I think the hand held camera thing works well with PA and REC. I just like this form of cinema. When its good you feel the isolation more and the terror, when its bad its just most haunted.
