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.

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.

Paranormal Activity 4

Not nearly as good as Paranormal Activity 1, 2 or 3. Had I known then, what I know now, I would've waited for it to come out on Netflix. IJS...

See it, but don't expect a lot

Honestly, this installment of the PA series feels like someone watched the first three, went to sleep, and dreamed an ending; woke up, wrote it down, and filmed it without rewrites. Oh, but be sure to stay until after the credits.

Waste of money

I am a big fan of all the movies, but this one just sucked so bad. The ending was good but that was the scariest part of the entire movie which lasted about 8-10 minutes then it was over, and left me feeling that there should be more to the movie, and that will probably be the nest movie.
