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'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.

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. ;-(

There was absolutely no plot and pretty much everything was left unsettled... I honestly think 3 was pushing it but this was just terrible. There weren't as many scares and the way they tied it in to the others was absolutely stupid.Don't waste your time or money. Wait for red box.

My wife and I don't get to see movies very often, and she really wanted to see a scary movie. So we went to Paranormal Activity 4, and she has yet to see her scary movie. This movie, like the others, draws out for almost an hour before anything interesting happens, and even then it is disappointing.
No major activity.
Deaths were VERY unoriginal and uneventful, serious? Snapped neck and fall from ceiling? Really?
The ending, oh it gets worse they have really ruined this block of movies for good!
