Paramount Pictures has detailed its upcoming combo pack release of directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's Paranormal Activity 4 (2012), starring Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton and Stephen Dunham. The release will be available for purchase on January 29th.
Fourth film in the 'found footage' horror franchise which follows on from events in the first two films. Alice (Newton) and her mother were fine until their new neighbours moved in, but the creepy little kid next door, Robbie (Brady Allen) and his auntie Katie (Featherston) have brought more than just their belongings to the neighburhood. It seems that the demonic presence which has tormented them for years has followed them and is keen on getting to know the neighbors.

This one was the least attended of all the films. Saw it in the theater. Was enjoyable, but the kid they got to play the young girl's boyfriend got on my nerves big time. The ending leaves you pretty much wondering just where the hell they are going with this. The release continues the relatively bare bones variety the series is known for. Maybe when they have released the 12th and final film in the franchise they will provide some input on how they cheaply pull these together.
One of my favorite films of the year. I absolutely love this series. PA3 is still my favorite but this one comes in close second. The final 15 minutes had me and the entire theater shaking. I am so excited for PA5 and the spin-off film. Screw Day 1 buy, I'll be there at midnight to pick up my copy.
I wouldn't go so far as to laud PA4 as much as you have, it was entertaining though as I said, I could have done without the annoying kid who played the bf. There is going to be a spin-off film???
This was the first PA I missed in theaters. Initially I just didn't have the time to make it when it first came out, but the more I read about it (especially how even the franchise's bigger fans were putting it down), the less of an effort I put in to try to see it. I'll definitely check it out at home though, and hope that the next installment will bring me back into the theaters.
What made no sense is that PA3 opened up a lot of doors at the end, and none of them are even touched upon in PA4. Strange, this could have really gone somewhere, and, subsequently, become the first-ever horror series that got BETTER as it continued. Major FAIL!
