PA series has almost outlived its purpose and welcome. hand held camera night vision entire house flying up in air, all of it has now been done to death - mostly by the series it self and a lot also by the reinvention in conjuring and the ilk. So there isn't much you expect when you see the fifth instalment hit the theatres on Halloween. how inventive. right ? wrong .
surprisingly PA5 has what it takes to rejuvenate the flagging series with the right dose of scare and edge of seat moments.
a family has just moved into a palatial house in a deal too good to be true. a set of witches are trying to bring alive a demon. a small girl is the conduit and there are video tapes from twenty years before that connect the then and now mysteriously. Spiced enough to give you sleepless nights, PA5 makes use of the hand held camera device to its advantage beautifully.
you are at once bang in the middle of things in the house, have an insider's POV and hence also the confusion in the heads of the characters is right in your mind too. the camera , unlike in the grid and fourth editions does not aimlessly linger staring into blank spaces leaving us high and dry. instead it adds to the impending sense of doom wonderfully.
what differentiates this edition is the fact that now the films have stories almost like standard horror films, the ghosts have a form there are portals that open up from walls and there is a priest trying to calm the ghost / demon down. and like a good regular horror film there are actors that are invested in their parts enough for us to care about their characters on screen.
and to think I went in to see how miserably this series would find an end. looks like there might just be another paranormal activity in the offing.
