Trivia

As with the previous three Paranormal Activity movies, Paramount Studios utilizes paranormal investigator/researcher, Christopher Chacon, (who is recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on paranormal phenomena), to internationally promote and publicize this fourth installment. Chacon also works in the entertainment industry as a writer, director and producer. See more »

Goofs

When Alex shows Ben the footage from night #1, the Calendar icon in the OSX dock clearly shows a one-digit number (possibly 6, since that's the date it's supposed to be). However, when the shot changes to a closeup, the icon now says it's the 17th. See more »

Quotes

Alex: Dad, what is that?
Doug: That is awesome!

Waste of time and money
22 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

what a waste of time and cash.. the movie was pointless. with no flow. no questions answered. just a waste. I never review movies but had to share how bad this was..compared to part 1- 2- and 3.... i don't know what else to say other than how misleading the commercial is.. the commercial was cut and spliced with video and audio that didn't even match what happened in the movie... you have been warned. when the movie was over.. people actually Boo'd. hopefully people will spread the word, and save others from throwing their money away. i know die-hard fans will go and give it a shot, but will be disappointed as well. Sinister was better and actually made you jump quite a few times.
