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.

Paranomal Activity 4 continues the saga started by Paranormal Activity 1 of a demon-possessed suburban house. This is the kind of scary movie I enjoy: genuinely suspenseful without unnecessary gore and loud irritating music. These movies were shot on a low budget, which proves that you can make a really entertaining film without all the expensive and superfluous special effects and music. I would definitely recommend this one.

What a disappointment. Predictable, slow, and who carries a camera filming while they are running and screaming. Don't waste your money, wait to see it on cable. Paranormal 3 was much better.

There are only so many times we can get scared of doors and chairs moving on their own! This is by far the most disappointing of them all. It is also the most boring of them all. There is nothing new to be seen here. I loved the first two, and the third was where it started to slip. They really dropped the ball on this one. Even though the ending is the standard "OMG" ending, it's not worth sitting through the previous hour and 25 minutes to get to the last 5 minutes, which is when most of the activity happens. Don't see it in theaters. Wait for the DVD or skip it altogether.

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 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.
