If you like the PA series for the scare factor, you probably will NOT be disappointed seeing PA4. Like PA3, the jumpy pop-out scenes start early on, fade into creepy suspense building scenes, then intensifies at the end. I like this series simply because every movie has gotten me to scream, jump up, or at least want to turn away from looking at the screen.
If you like the PA series for the plot, you WILL probably be disappointed seeing PA4. Just from watching the previews or reading the plotline, you go into the movie already knowing what the whole movie builds you up to find out. It doesn't answer any questions left unanswered from PA3, and actually confused me more. I've been reading message boards to find the answers to see if I missed something in PA4, but people seem just as unsettled with where they're taking the franchise as I am.
All in all, if you're looking for a night out with a few heart racing moments, go.
If you're into it for the story, wait for it to be on DVD.
