User Reviews

Worst one in the series.
19 October 2012 | by atinderSee all my reviews

I loved first movie, I did not like PA 2 that much, I had fun watching PA 3. Which I think I enjoyed the most out of four.

This one is got to be the worst movie of series so far,no were near as good 1 or 3, even worse them PA 2 (Which I did not like)

The scare scene in this movie really tame down from 3rd movie, none them were really affecting at all, the ended it to quick and moved on to the next scene, like nothing happened, that how it feels thought out the whole movie, some of the scare were so bad that was almost funny.

There also some scenes that add nothing to the plot, they put in the

movie for the sake of it,

there's is no aftermath. (We Have to deal with the fact, they had no idea that happened, the scene i am talking about is one You see in the trailer with girl floating off the bed.)

As the movie goes on, I did not follow the story, I got confused, where the story was going. I did not understand , Andy soon starts seeing Toby as well thanks to what Robbie did, he also seem go missing near Latter part of the movie.

The only parts I really enjoyed were last 2 or (3 max) minutes of the end, there are some good enjoyable scene to watch, which some may find scary.

The acting was really decent of from the whole cast,

4 out of 10, Worse in the series by FAR!
