Paranormal Activity 4 Reviews

Will Leitch

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.

Whether you attend the Paranormal Activity movies for the scares or the story, part 4 is a major step down.

...Shulman and Joost forget to bring the scary - that low frequency noise and telegraphed pop-up scares have worn as thin as a communal durex.

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.

A rickety old ride and no mistake, this instalment is for franchise fans only.

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.

When the glimpse of the utter ferocity finally comes the carrot you've been after all this time is pulled from your grasp and you have to wonder, was it worth chasing it at all?

The List

It never quite manages to capture the same tension and dread, the scares have become predictable, after all there are only so many times you can pull off the same trick.

Yuck. We are one step away from doing "Paranormal Activity in Space."

The most disturbing thing about this scary movie is how this phantom nonsense ever got made. I was so terrified by the dreadful filmmaking, that never mind being scared silly, by the end of this monster mess I was dumb struck.

It's clear that the Activity has become too normal for all but the die-hards.

Well, it was fun while it lasted kids. The ghost train shudders to a halt with Paranormal Activity 4, the first entry in the usually innovative series unable to produce any decent scares.

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

Yet another round of home video scares from a creep show franchise whose "found footage" is now best left in the cutting room bin.

A disappointing addition to the franchise.

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.

Trotting out the same types of scares, the same plot structure and the same found-footage format gets less effective with each installment.

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

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.
