Verdict: Paranormal Activity 4 has a few good scares but it's mostly repetitive and tedious. A weak entry in the series. Skip it!

Paranormal Activity 4 Review - Down, down, downOct 24, 2012News Paranormal Activity 4 is one of the most tedious and boring horror films I've seen in a while. All the activity led to this? Really? The first 15 minutes uses every trick the Paranormal Activity series is known for and the rest of it is simply drab and monotonous. This film deals with the section involving Hunter who was kidnapped by aunt Katie in the second installment. Alas, there is barely a plot and the characters are even duller. I had very little interest in stalking these people.There are some typical scary moments, some of which do work. But most, and I mean at least 10 of them, have characters covering the entire frame and when they move: boom! Get scared! Blankets are pulled off, people levitate, chandeliers fall and what not. Are you scared now? Okay NOW? No, thank you.When all the horror shenanigans are done with, the ending shows that one shot where you are supposed to go: “Oooh what was that?” Out of curiosity, of course. But all I could feel was. “I don't care”. Out of sheer apathy, of course.The first Paranormal Activity is a fantastic horror film. After the Blair Witch Project gave the birth to the found footage genre, this film with its new twist to a gimmick gave it a sneaky novelty. I got to know those characters (not love) but cared for their fates. The second continued the story well, not exactly the best sequel you could ask for but in the wake of the impending films in the series, it was good enough.The third was a prequel, which should have outshined the previous entries, but it didn't. Instead it was the weakest. Paranormal Activity 4 makes the series increasingly worse, this film is easily the weakest of the lot. With almost nothing going right for it, I can hardly care what happens in the next one. Get a good director to save this franchise or it's going bust. Maybe it has already.Nikhil Arora Paranormal Activity 4 Review - Down, down, down Oct 24, 2012
