The problem with the Paranormal Activity series is that it's become nothing more than an assembly line product. Paramount Pictures has decided that it has to get a new installment into theaters every Halloween, which means that each film is...
One of the primary faults behind "Paranormal Activity 4" is that it makes promises it just can't keep. It swears new scares with the use of the kinect and light beams and doesn't quite fulfill the potential for the plot device. It introduces a new...
It needs to be said, my expectations were high for Paranormal Activity 4…well, high considering this is the fourth feature in horror franchise that's part of subgenre (found footage) quickly wearing out its welcome.
And that's fine. I guess. It's a spooky, suburbs-hating demon or ghost or whatever. It's not like we can force it to have a coherent plan. But if we're going to buy a ticket to watch it torment household appliances and possess the souls of an...
Paranormal Activity 4 is yet another dose of scary goings on in a US suburb all caught on camera. We’ve moved on from the CCTV footage now to a mix of webcams, UV sensors and hidden spy cams but the effect is the pretty much same. And so is the outcome.

There is still activity, I regret to report, and none of it is of the normal variety. When will these obsessive home-video enthusiasts learn? The first time an inanimate object hurls itself across the room at you is probably the time to pack a bag and...

The first “Paranormal Activity” spooked critics and audiences alike because it brought something new to the dusty, musty, dime-a-dozen world of scary movies.

Give the “Paranormal Activity” people some credit. They’ve made three sequels now to what was initially a standalone, not-meant-to-be-a-franchise horror film, and they’ve done it without becoming a laughable parody of themselves.
A Nevada family notices that the young boy living across the street always seems to be on his own. His single mother is evidently very busy, so the little boy appears drawn to our protagonist family, and even tends to turn up in their treehouse.
There were such high hopes for Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman taking over the Paranormal Activity franchise. Their mythology building and creativity made Paranormal Activity 3 as surprising as their first film, Catfish. But a year after PA3...

The scariest stretch in Paranormal Activity 4 are the 10 seconds or so—though it feels like an agonizing minute—where a teenager abandons a web-chat conversation to investigate a weird noise and all the audience gets is an empty, static shot of her...
Suburban teen Alex (Kathryn Newton) gets increasingly freaked out as her little brother (Aiden Lovekamp) cozies up to his weirdo neighbor (Brady Allen), who says he has an invisible ''friend.'' It's a new house with a new family in it, but everything...
Reel Film Reviews
The Paranormal Activity series hits the wall hard with this ineffectual and frequently interminable entry, as filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman follow the franchise's established formula to an almost unconscionable degree - with the familiarity...
We’ll just say this from the get-go – this fourth addition to the surprisingly durable horror franchise is frightfully dull, and we’d advise even fans of the earlier movies to steer clear.
While the found footage format isn’t completely played out, we’ve now seen plenty of average examples in the horror genre. Many take their cues from the Paranormal Activity films, which makes it all the more remarkable that the series has maintained...
If Paranormal Activity 3 successfully transformed the desk fan into the scariest home appliance since Satan’s nose hair trimmer, PA4 attempts a similar trick with the Xbox’s motion controller, Kinect. The lightshow seen when capturing Kinect’s sensors...
It's all quiet on the home front once again, picking up from the end of Paranormal Activity 2.
