Paranormal Activity 3 Sets Records
The seminal horror franchise returns for its third part and manages to destroy three records in the process.
First up, the movie has claimed the record of highest opening by a horror film by bringing in $54 million dollars in the United States alone (grand total of $80 million if you count international too). Keep in mind that this movie only cost about $5 million to make, meaning that everyone involved is laughing all the way to the bank.
Second, it has destroyed its previous film record of $40 million raked in at the box office.
Finally, it has set the record for best opening in October, surpassing the previous record of $50 million set by Jackass 3D last year. That’s just amazing. I can’t hate the movie for doing well and I’ll for sure rent it because I enjoyed the other two, but to be frank, I think Dr. Farnsworth says it best.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
