Paranormal Activity 4 proved to be the highest grossing movie at the domestic box office this past weekend, pulling in an estimated $30.2 million dollars and pushing the franchise in quite a few new directions. A lot of fans are hurrying back to the theaters to watch the ending again, with the sequel expected to go strong throughout this upcoming Halloween weekend.
As per the usual with this series of spooky haunted house movies, we weren't allowed to chat with any of the cast until after most of the fans got a chance to see it first, as this is one franchise built purely on the surprises that lie in wait of the viewer. But now that most of you have flocked to the theater, we can get to the bottom of that pesky climax that willl have you back in your seat this weekend, trying to figure out what the heck happened. »
Chicago – Following the first “Paranormal Activity” in 2007, which is most profitable film of all time based on return on investment, filmmakers Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Henry Joost have made a killing for Paramount Pictures.
But with one movie a year since the second one in 2010, these low-budget films with no-name actors are showing fatigue and that they are overstaying their generous welcome with Friday’s release of “Paranormal Activity 4”.
The only novel plot device used in the fourth film is the Xbox Kinect from Microsoft. When turned on and used normally, the Kinect just makes your body the game controller by tracking your movements. But while viewing the room through a night-vision camera in green lighting, you apparently see the countless projection-tracking dots.

Used to be I would be doubtful kids like the cute teenage girl and her boyfriend in “Paranormal Activity 4″ would run around recording every little second of their lives on video. Of course, I then saw what was on TV nowadays (or heck, on YouTube and pretty much everywhere this thing we call the planet), and realize that Yes, they actually do this. Not only do they do it, but they are more than willing to let you see every second of it. So in that respect, “Paranormal Activity 4″ is probably the most realistic of all the “Paranormal Activity” movies so far! Go figure. Anyhoo, check out the latest trailer for Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman’s second go-round on the series, which continues the adventures of evil spirits stalking homes.
