Jumps and Thrills, on a Crashing Coaster
I saw Paranormal Activity 1-3, and I was hooked from the start. I loved the "found-footage" aspect to the movies and I was also intrigued by the background story, so I decided to watch the fourth Paranormal Activity. Sadly, the story-line barely inched forward and nothing remarkably new was introduced. Thankfully, the filmmaker added plenty of moments where I was pressed into the back of my seat, waiting for something to jump out or rush across the camera. The director did a great job with the suspense factor, and I think that this is what the film should be recognized for. As for acting, Katie did a great job acting possessed, and Kathryn Newton seemed genuinely frightened. Brady Allen and Aiden Lovekamp were great additions to the screen as well. In the end, I just wish that the director expounded on the background story more and finished off the series. This is probably the last one I'll see.
