This movie was very slow to start and when it's over you'll have questions that aren't answered. It was a very confusing ending and made absolutely no sense. I loved the first 3 movies but this was a huge disappointment!

All the activity has led to what?! This movie was what you're expecting nothing new there! While I loved the movie, I must say that I would rate it below the other three. It is slow compared to the other three. Not alot going on really. It focuses more on the f***ed lil kid from across the street. I would go watch it again and will buy the Blu-ray when it comes out but I would have to give it an 8 out of 10. They focused a lil bit on the circle in the triangle design but never explained it?! Why put it in the movie if you're not going to elaborate on the significance of it? The ending is the best part of the movie. Brace yourself for the last 15 minutes, as it is easily the most f***ed part of the movie!! Still, if you're a fan of the series you will want to see this movie just don't expect anything new. Don't really know how much more they can do with this series. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. Still just want to see how much more they can do with this.

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.

If you like the PA series for the scare factor, you probably will NOT be disappointed seeing PA4. Like PA3, the jumpy pop-out scenes start early on, fade into creepy suspense building scenes, then intensifies at the end. I like this series simply because every movie has gotten me to scream, jump up, or at least want to turn away from looking at the screen.
If you like the PA series for the plot, you WILL probably be disappointed seeing PA4. Just from watching the previews or reading the plotline, you go into the movie already knowing what the whole movie builds you up to find out. It doesn't answer any questions left unanswered from PA3, and actually confused me more. I've been reading message boards to find the answers to see if I missed something in PA4, but people seem just as unsettled with where they're taking the franchise as I am.
All in all, if you're looking for a night out with a few heart racing moments, go.
If you're into it for the story, wait for it to be on DVD.
