“Paranormal Activity 4” gives the audience jumps, scares and laughter. This movie is not meant to be insightful or “pee your pants” scary, but it is fun to go see with friends.
In “Paranormal Activity 4” five years have passed since the disappearance of Katie, played by Katie Featherston, and Hunter from the previous movies. A residential family notices bizarre events occur whenever the strange little boy from across the street visits their house.
The movie is fun. It is not meant to be a serious horror movie because there are far scarier movies out there. The scary parts in the movie are usually something non-scary jumping onto the screen. Granted, towards the end of the movie it gets more intense. Those parts at the end made some audience members scream. To balance out the creepy parts, there are plenty of funny parts thanks to Ben, played by Matt Shively, the boyfriend of the teenage girl Alex, played by Kathryn Newton.
Some people did not take to well to the movie.
“Paranormal Activity 4: Because people are stupid enough to pay to watch the same movie a fourth time,” @ThugPickles said on Twitter.
The filmography was absolutely terrible because of the style of movie. The acting is laughable. The movie is a joke, but people go to watch it because it is still entertaining. People watch the Paranormal movies because they laugh at the terribleness but still jump at the surprise creepy moments.
The viewer should at least see Paranormal Activity 1 and 2 before seeing the fourth movie. There are points in the movie that follow up on past events.
Tweeter Tom Syndicate embraced “Paranormal” for what it is, a scary funny movie.
“Haha! Paranormal Activity 4 was so random! Was more funny than scary :) good film though if you have watched all the others!” Syndicate said on Twitter.
Do not go see “Paranormal Activity 4” expecting to be scared senseless. Grab a couple friends and go see this movie at night, relax and have fun together.
We give this movie three out of five paws.
