Did You Know?
Paranormal Activity and
Paranormal Activity 2, Paramount Studios once again utilized paranormal investigator/researcher, Christopher Chacon, who is recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on paranormal phenomena, to internationally promote and publicize this third installment. Chacon also works in the entertainment industry as a writer, director and producer.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
While the film takes place in 1988, the home video tapes are presented in wide screen and high-definition quality. However, this is a necessary and deliberate change on the part of the crew, and not an error. Producing a movie with "authentic" quality based on the equipment that existed back then would make a horrible quality for it to be seen in theaters and the movie would be unusable to most theaters.
Different movie than the trailer...
I thought I went to go see Paranormal Activity 3... you know, like the
one in the trailer with a seance gone brutally wrong, house on fire,
jumping girls from the upper story, medium coming to rid the house of
bad spirits, closet ghost knocking games, crying girls huddled in cars,
mom being flown out of bedroom, and water being thrown on a ghost to
reveal that its shape is actually there. But no, I ended up seeing a
crappy excuse for producers thinking they are being creative and edgy
by changing it from the trailer and making it a story about satanic
women rituals. I've already seen that horrible remake. I wanted to see
a Paranormal Activity, not "The Wicker Man / The Last Exorcism".
I hope someone sues the creators for false advertising by not making
ANY scenes from the trailer into the final cut. That honestly makes me
mad. The Paranormal movies were made on the premise of being about a
haunting of demons; adding in the "cult" aspect just changes things. We
were drawn in on the fear of the supernatural, not satanic women. I
want to see the movie from the trailer, not what they decided was the
best and scariest cut for theaters, because that version was terrible.
