Movie Review World

When Paranormal Activity arrived on our screens in 2007 it caught most people off guard, bringing a new-ish found footage approach and feel to the haunted house / ghost story genre. This became an overnight phenomenon and a massive financial success which inevitably went on to spawn a profitable franchise. This year see’s the fourth installment of the series.

This however does not save the movie from being the weakest in the series. We are subjected to the same set pieces, the same barrage of cheap and lazy jump scares, the inactive nights that are excruciatingly tiresome, the predictable red herrings and the loud abrupt noises that are always followed by a startled “hello?” from one of the characters.

Yes it is true, they have managed to make the same movie, Four Times! This sequel brings nothing new and in some instances does it worse than before. With little substance, direction or story to draw you in this is truly a franchise that has ran out of steam.

Paranormal Activity 4 Review Allan Brown


Summary: Another poorly written and directed film from the achingly predictable Paranormal Activity franchise. The only thing scary would be if this installment spurred another sequel. Ooops, I spoke to soon, it has.
