Paranormal Activity 4 Reviews

Glenn Dunks

Paranormal Activity 4 is arguably the weakest entry in the series, but if one still gets their kicks out of these films then that probably won't mean all that much.

Too bad it nearly falls apart in the end, undone by what must have been poor editing choices.

Instead of the mystery of the known, we spend half our time trying to figure out who in the hell we're supposed to be looking at.

The dread that should be smothering is merely an intermittent itch.

The fourth entry in the hugely successful film series just can't match the others in the nightmare-making department.

We Got This Covered

Paranormal Activity 4 is the worst of the series and one of the worst horror films ever made. It's bloated, drawn-out and has no idea how to provide a single scare.

Fan The Fire

A lack of originality does hold the film back, but with decent work behind the camera and a breakneck finale, Paranormal Activity 4 is still a solid watch if you've an evening spare, or horror film night coming up.

Cinema Crazed

It's a strong and creepy expansion of the mythos, but one that could have used a lot more work in the story department.

The eerie inertia and starkness of the past films' imagery are mostly gone here, and that style is what had set this series apart for me.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Little depth or subtext here. It's tough to care about the fate of a generic, whitebread family and its blonde-in-distress living in an airless, gated-community Nevada. We've seen the creepy kid and freaked-out teens in countless fear-fests before.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

The chills are centered at the end of 'Paranormal Activity 4.' Even more creepy is the "cute factor" of little kids that permeates most of the movie. Although the franchise may be running out of steam, this segment is more than mediocre.

And, then there was four. "Paranormal Activity 4″ is a sequel to the second film, not the third, and totally unnecessary, of course.

Matt's Movie Reviews

For the most part Paranormal Activity 4 is effective. It's problem lies in originality. Needed was something more than the "same old" for this sequel to truly stand out.

October 30, 2012

The latest instalment in a franchise of cheaply made mass-marketed movies that have lined the pockets of producers who chanced upon the holy grail of license-to-print-money filmmaking.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The popularity of this reliable if repetitious franchise suggests that anxieties over the ubiquity and invasiveness of social media and its related technologies may trouble even the most enthusiastic members of the plugged-in generation (even teenagers).

Anyone who's seen the other entries can tell you this series has never been about the story. "Paranormal Activity 4' proves this once again, and when you factor in the lazy writing and complete lack of scares, it easily earns the title of worst entry yet.

Unfortunately, this franchise has finally seemed to run its course. There are less quality scares, and now a story that almost doesn't matter.

Orin Pelli's original idea that we'll keep wanting to pay good money to watch a digital clock ticking over has surely run its course now.

When the scares do come, they come fast and hard but, unfortunately, far too late.
