After watching the credits, I realized what was missing - the original writers. Continuity was not good. First 30% took too long to establish basic storyline. Middle was muddy, and ending was not really good. No establishment of who/what was happening across the street. Too much about the teens. Way too much about the little boy w/o really establishing anything. Was clever to see tools used in ghost hunting tv shows, used to trick the eyes, etc. The over the top zombie style makeup at the end was just too much. This episode diverted way too much from the original three. If there is a #5, needs to go back to the original blueprint. They were winners. This one finished way back in the pack. ;-(

I will be honest and say that I have not enjoyed all of these movies but this one was really good. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I liked the fact that there were a few times in the movie that you just knew something was going to happen and it didn't. keeps you guessing..

This movie was very disappointing for me. I didn't hate it, but, it was not as good as the others. I was expecting more than what it was. I expected the movie to be slow pretty much throughout like the others, with little things happening here and there to make you jump. This movie did not make me jump at all. I kept waiting for something to happen, but, it never did. The action happened at the last 5 minutes of the movie and even that wasn't that good. It then ended and we all just looked at each other like...that's it?! The preview that they play for the movie wasn't even in the movie. A real disappointment. I only rated it so so because of the little bit of suspense that it gave me, which, unfortunately did not follow through.

To start i want to say I love these movies, there always fun to watch with a group. I went in knowing these movies are always half as scary as the commerical promises but still had expectations that i would be scared. This movie isnt scary until the last few minutes, im serious. Movies like these tease you out of your ten dollars cause they auidences want to be scared and we'll go see just about anything to find that feeling, so they just shell out another sequal. I was pissed but theres like 10 scares before the one real one that are seriously nothing. No sequal can ever recreate the terror that the original instilled in me. When i saw the first one i had to sleep with the lights on, honestly and this one i forgot about when i got home. Waste of time and ten dollars.

Yet another installment, spooking the easily spooked worldwide. True to its formula and as predictably startling as ever, this one carries the audience to what hopefully will be near the end of the story, leaving plenty of room of course for, you guessed it, one more sequel. There's really no such thing out there in movie land as an end, as can be evidenced by the on-going pabulum of horror productions from the seventies and eighties being remade now for a whole new generation. I'll give the "PNA franchise" credit where due, at least it's original material, somewhat bad, but original. Is it worth a ticket's price? I'd say if you plan to see it, it would be best in a theater on a huge screen. I can't imagine how dull and awful this would play on a TV, much less an Iphone. Still, if you saw the others, you're going to see this one regardless what anyone says, so see it. Likely, you won't be disappointed. It's no blockbuster but it isn't as bad as they get either.
