The Paranormal Activity film series continues with Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. This time, the cell phones and computer cameras are focused on a teenage girl (Kathryn Newton) whose family allow a young boy in their neighborhood named Robbie (Brady Allen) to stay with them while his mum is sick. Soon after, eerie things start happening in the household, some of which focus on the girl's younger brother Wyatt. As the bumps in the night become more pronounced, the mysteries surrounding Robbie's family and the house across the street grow to the point where the only thing for the teen girl to do is investigate it herself.

    Reviewed by Simon Miraudo

    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. While it ...

  • i am hvae not whch it

  • It appears after the wild and scary part 3 the filmmakers are running out of ideas and here it shows. Alex would be awesome in her own film series as she seems out of place here. The film is mildly enjoyable but despite one or 2 good jump scenes the storyline is getting downright silly and the X-box night vision is their worst idea yet as it made my eyes burn. It should had been done the ONCE but it's overkill here looking more like an X-box advert. Let's hope Part 5 made for later this year improves as the series is getting old now.

  • The most boring movie I've ever watched. More like a home movie done by some teenager with a new video camera that he received for his birthday.

  • The idea that this film is considered scary baffles me. I watched it and was bored for the first hour, I should't have to scan every frame of film for a scary moment and it's worse when I don't find one. Every time fridge door opened and cut off half the screen I was prepared for it to close and something scary to be standing there but it never happened. There's a scene in this movie which is a direct ripoff of The Shining (Look for the kid riding around on a big wheel) and the effects were so cartoony that I was just on the edge of laughing. The only time that I was genuinely scared was in the last 10 minutes which are very well done and do have a sense of dread... and then you get to the last image of the film and all fear is replaced with confusion. Give me Poltergeist or Exorcist any day.

  • Can't wait for the 5th instalment, a bit disappointed with the ending, I guess it keeps you wanting to see the next movie!
