Not as expected

Yes, this was a highly anticipated film that movie lovers such as I was begging for. But maybe this is the reason people aren't supposed to get everything they want. Paranormal activity was a fun thought inside of heads but when made into an actually movie it didn't go so well. There were many faults in this movie and I'll only list a couple; it was too predictable, not original at all, not very scary. If your looking for a movie to watch with friends that will give you a jump or two then this is a good movie.

I'm not the biggest fan of scary movies, perhaps because I spend most of the movie screaming my head off, but I definitely think that Paranormal Activity 3 was better than this one. It was a good movie and scary and suspenseful as all hell but it just didn't have as much build up as the previous one.

ABSOLUTELY worst in franchise

CLEARLY the worst in the series. I have a real love/hate relationship with this series. The only one i actually ENJOYED was 3. Now that said........ WTF!!!! They never actually explained why they are taping everything. The quality of film was movie quality. UMMMM isnt this supposed to be video in a continuing "found" video franchise? It's poorly written and poorly laid out. I liked the last one alot and REALLY wanted to like this one. It's borderline slasher flick stupid. Frankly I'm a bit sick of the bait n switch the showing you scenes not even in the movie. WEAK!!!!! If I were you I'd wait until its in Redbox or free on Netflix. If you have to see it take a date. Maybe she's easy to scare and at least you'll get some cuddling out of it. Also let me save you some time DO NOT hunt around the screen for something to happen like in previous movies. You dont need to search the corners. Movie is about half over before you really see anything "ghostly"

Less Activity This Time

Paranormal Activity 4 was not as good as the other 3 but much same as the others, suspense and fear. I love these kinds of movies they give me a chill because they're so paranormal scary. If you like this one you should definately check out the other 3 and I am almost certain there will be a part 5. One more thing, there's a few laughs also that make worth your while and the reason I'm telling you is because it got a bad review I think. Go

My friends and I really enjoyed this film. I saw it at a 530pm show, with about 50 people sitting in clusters of 3 -6 throughout the theater. We screamed and laughed and reacted together - the audience participation made the experience AMAZING. Grading the films (for scariness) from 10 (AAHH!) to 1 (Boo.): -Paranormal Activity -Paranormal Activity 2 -Paranormal Activity 4 -Paranormal Activity 3 There are kids in it, but it's NOT for kids. There was an Easter Egg after the credits...it's in Spanish. Enjoy!
