1. I think they have got everything they can possibly get out of this franchise
2. Don't know if this is by design but none of the scary scenes in the previews are part of the movie - including the ghostly image on the poster; I was looking forward to the: "Back door open, front door open, side door open scene."
3. Pretty slow till the very end.

I have seen each of the Parnormal Activity movies since inception and I can say knowing about the paranormal field this is pretty lame. It was okay to see but not worth the 8.50 I paid for it. I would definitly wait until it goes into netflix or $1 rental formats. At least it follows the same family and it did throw a slight curve into it, but not enough to say another sequel will or needs to emerge.

I was introduced to the PA series when a friend and I went to see 3 last year. I was so scared my legs were weak and literally kept giving out from underneath me as I tried walking out of the theater, tripping over my feet all the way out to the car. Security laughed at us.
After recovering, I got up the nerve to watch them all at home and was not disappointed with the previous 2 releases. I couldn't wait for 4 to come out.
I went to the sneak peek showing, and couldn't have been more disappointed. You get startled a couple times, but never scared. It was extremely predictable and the ways the people were killed weren't even worth the time spent watching.
Even worse- I got to see this movie for FREE and it was still this huge of a disappointment.
The people in charge of this franchise have quite obviously checked out. Don't waste your money OR your time.

I saw the other 3 on dvd and I am thinking I should have done the same with this one. I dont think the ending was that great. hmmmmm

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.
