Paranormal Activity 4

In my humble opinion, the Paranormal Activity franchise peaked in the final two minutes of the first installment. That would be when a rather boring movie about bedsheets moving by themselves actually became recommendable based on its startling ending. Since that moment, the series has been one scene after another of rooms where something, be it a sound, a shadowy figure strolling through or a basketball coming down the stairs by itself, is going to happen. Or sometimes it doesn’t happen, and the director fakes you out (The directors of this installment are big fans of the open refrigerator door fake-out). Kathryn Newton plays a teenager living in a house where a mysterious kid moves across the street. Lots of strange things start happening when she Skypes her boyfriend and … you know the drill. There isn’t one legitimate scare this time around. This franchise is played out, yet a fifth chapter is already in the works. It’s not going to stop anytime soon.
