Typical Paranormal Activity

Another year, another Paranormal Activity. This one follows the same tried-and-true formula for creating suspense. But the cat's out of the bag for this one. You almost expect all the scary moments, as they all are taken from previous Paranormals. Still the movie uses lighting and sound well to create the perfect atmosphere for a fright. The coolest aspect of it is how it uses an Xbox Kinect and a night vision camera. The night vision camera picks up the tracking dots that the Kinect uses to track movement, so just imagine the possibilities. All in all, not the scariest or the best Paranormal Activity. But if you like them, you'll at least enjoy this somewhat. Otherwise, don't waste ten bucks on ever increasing movie tickets.

I was worried about this movie not being any good and just a rushed project to scoop in more money but we were very happy with the movie.

As a fan, I was disappointed. But you will probably still enjoy it.

As a fan of the series, I felt that they took a step backward with this latest iteration; some of the creative decisions were questionable at best, and while the cast was competent enough, some of their actions throughout the film were downright moronic. That being said, the film still retains a great atmosphere, and some of the funnier "scares" are very effective. Hiring ILM to do the SFX was genius, and the action itself was very well thought out. Not the best, and possibly the worst of the series, but you could still do much worse at the movies this year. Stay after the credits to catch a sneak peek at the Latino spin-off, focusing on Santeria. Looks to be better in almost every regard.

No Scare, No Story

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.
