Not as good as the last one
I understand that the third one was found to be the past of the past three movies, so it might not be fair to compare it to the past movies.
Paranormal Activity 4 has its cool factor from the KINECT dots being projected and stuff along those lines. The MacBook does a great job at immersing you in a scene where seeing the character whirling around and trying to figure out what's going on, while capturing decent emotion.
However, half of this movie is composed of two horny teens, two indolent, dimwitted parents, and two boys... with your demon-mama showing up from time to time. The incidents seemed far more predictable/drawn-out. And the scene with the boy on the big-wheel seemed more like a nod to The Shining than its predecessors.
Don't get me wrong, tensions rise halfway through. I had a tingly arm and a petrified girlfriend at the end of the flick. I guess I can just think of far worse things to happen.
