Extreme Disapoinment..
10 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Paranormal Activity 4,,,,, well fellow movie goers this movie was a huge disappointment, first it starts out confusing they introduce characters that have nothing to do with the rest of the series, there are no big scares or out of control haunting 's like the rest of the series there are a few minor jumps at the end, the acting is horrible in this one. by the tine you reach the end your left with more questions than answers, if you have seen the other 3 then you can understand some of the movie the rest is just so confusing you have no clue who the 2 main character's are supposed to be and what exactly they have to do with the movie,,, my final rating is 2 stars out of a possible 5 this movie was doomed from the start,, very disappointed,, do not recommend paying to see this film...
