Fans of the popular series will surely be disappointed with a film that feels as if it's on autopilot from the opening moments. It's more dull than frightening.

Silly-minded and riddled with telegraphed convolution, Paranormal Activity 4's only legitimate scare tactic is its inevitable fifth sluggish serving waiting in the wings for a future flaccid presentation in a selected October month of your choosing.

What it shows will shock and scare you...provided that you've never seen a horror film before in your life.

The found footage from the unique camera is riddled with hilariously awful computer graphics which renders the film reliant on shock tactics than burgeoning terror.

Doesn't seem interested in offering anything new or building on an already well-established mythology.

Paranormal Activity has lapsed into self-parody.

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.
July 21, 2013
Too bad it nearly falls apart in the end, undone by what must have been poor editing choices.
June 23, 2013
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.
May 22, 2013
The dread that should be smothering is merely an intermittent itch.
February 26, 2013
The fourth entry in the hugely successful film series just can't match the others in the nightmare-making department.
February 4, 2013
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.
December 17, 2012
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.
November 22, 2012
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.

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.

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 29, 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.

Kids teleconferencing on their stupid computers=NOT SCARY!
October 25, 2012
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.
