"Now, from the producers of those films you mostly enjoy because they're short and there's nothing else to watch on Halloween, comes the thing no one asked for... all three films in the series, edited together in chronological order!" Even as a "Paranormal Activity" fan, I can't imagine who would want to see all three films cut together, "never before seen footage" or not. You'll see me at a three day long "Lord of the Rings" marathon before you see me watching this. It's being used as a promotional tool for the series release on "Bluray" and Digital Download.

It's that time of year when trailers for 2012's horror releases are starting to trickle into theaters. Caught this one this weekend while watching "The Devil Inside" (for the rest of that story, please visit www.clownpenis.fart). It's flown under my radar so far, and not only does it look like a bad-ass terror film (which I've been saying we need more of these days)... I'm guessing the technology they used to fuse the two Olsen Twins together to form a prettier, more talented actress is really going to change the world for the better. Just think of all the things we can combine!

Devil Inside

"Paranormal Activity," a series that has now reached three films with a fourth on the way later this year, put found footage horror in the mainstream. When done well (see here, here or here) the style can produce a transcendent horror experience.

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary!

"Paranormal Activity 3" takes viewers back to see where the activity began.

After a legitimate breakout and a strong follow-up, it was safe to say that we're now stuck with "Paranormal Activity," for better or for worse. And while that type of success is usually a recipe for Hollywood studio scrimping and laziness, this series may mark one of the first instances where producers have managed to grow a series both in ambition and quality as it progresses.

Grab your shaky-cam and all the MRE's you can carry...

As cynical as I am about this franchise, I've got to admit that "Paranormal Activity 2" was way better than it had any right to be. They've chosen to continue with the same story for this film, going with a prequel setting complete with "shot on VHS" footage. How retro. Can the third film continue the success of the first two?

The crew lathers up in troll stink and heads out on the hunt... Are you prepared for what happens next?

We're all creeped out by this movie... and "brother" director teams.

OMG you guys, this movie is totally real.
