First full trailer and poster for Paranormal Activity 4 drop...

3 years agoby:

Paranormal Activity 4 banner

... the ball. On being scary. At all.

Also, due to its particular arrangement my brain keeps reading the title as "Paranormal 4 Activity."  As in something simliar to those "men 4 women" ads on Craigslist.  But maybe that's what this series is really all about - the paranormal force is just lonely and needs some companionship and doesn't want to have to settle for some creepy old man with hairy hands.

If someone told me that halfway through PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 became a supernatural rom-com-farce, I'd actually be really excited to see it when it releases on October 21st

As stated at the end of the trailer, you can text the phrase "WantIt" to 21534 in order to "find out first what really happened."  If you do, make sure to come on back and let us know in the comment section below what you discover!

Extra Tidbit: Am I being too harsh? I've just never really found this franchise to be all that engaging - any fans of the serious out there who want to defend this trailer? I'm all ears. Or eyes, I guess, as you'd be typing your thoughts out rather than speaking them.

Not bad

I enjoy the series. Even though I did like the 3rd one I just couldn't believe that 90% of the Paranormal Activity 3 trailer was NOT in the movie. It was like I saw a completely different movie in the theaters. Let's see what they do with this one. The trailer not bad and the little things that go bump in the night still creeps me out. We'll see.

So what did Katie and Hunter get up to between 2006 and 2011? Did they spend all that time house-hunting? Is this the first property that felt in need of a good haunting, or have they freaked out a whole string of neighbours prior to this latest one?

I suppose 'Paranormal 5 Activity' could be 90 minutes of Katie and Hunter alternating between driving around and looking at houses? "See how the leasing began!"

Trailer

I don't know why we are worried about the scene they showed in this trailer. It won't even be in the movie anyway.

I was gonna reply with a long angry comment expressing the bullshit in this franchise and how it needs to die off, but I won't. All I will say is..no.

Silence is scary...

I don't know about you guys but when I'm watching a film and there is no music it freaks me out. For example: No Country or Blair Witch. Much like real life when you are alone in the house and all the crickets stop chirping and you can hear every creak of wood and howl of the wind silence ultimately sets off an alarm in your mind that something's not right. The Paranormal films do an exceptional job taking advantage of immersing the audience in an experience that depicts something paranormal

The Paranormal films do an exceptional job taking advantage of immersing the audience in an experience that depicts something paranormal that may seem it could happen to anybody. Sometimes (most of the time) real life is uneventful and boring and then something really exciting happens. It's all a series of tension and release. Have they all been good? No, there have been misses but I think it's successful because of the experience it gives. It certainly isn't for everyone though. I hope they stay on the same path of giving an immersive experience.

What A Minute..

Correct me if im wrong, but isnt the blonde girl in the trailer the same blonde girl who played the spoiled brat of a teenager that annoyed Kristen Wiig's character Annie in Bridesmaids!? That bitch was annoying and she would probably do an amazing job annoying us once again.

All of the boredom has led to this...

Every one of these films has been terrible and yet, this parasitic franchise has been allowed to continue. To make it worse, they've merely been clones of each other, but people will still pay to watch the same movie over and over. Enough already.

awesome

awesome but at some point they gotta get somebody who know's how to fight these demons, like the guys from SUPERNATURAL, and I know that takes away the scaryness of the films but I just want somebody to help all these poor white people being tortured by this demon, also I call this series, Paranormal Titties, No apparent reason just easier than saying Paranormal Activity to me, but i guess that also makes me look like a pig haha

So in the first decade of the 21st century, we had to wait through the unscary "Saw" films, which sucked because they tried way too hard. Now, we have to wait through the unscary "Paranormal Activity films, which suck because they don't try hard *enough.*

Therefore, following Goldilocks logic, the next horror franchise should be just right!

That girl was really really bad in that trailer. At least get some good actors with the millions you've made already.

So I'm guessing the little boy in the yard is Katie's nephew that she took. Looks the right age being 5 years later. I'm intrigued.

What i love about this series is how nothing happens for an hour, then a chair moves, or door opens, then some really cheap scare at the end and it makes millions. The only thing scary about this series is how much money it makes. May be the worst horror series of all time!

These movies are absolute borefests & not scary at all. They make the Saw series seem like classics at this point.

I have loved the first 3 movies. The third one was a really good movie, with a weak ending. I am glad that this movie seems to be about progressing the story that was left open ended with 2. We are getting back to Katy. I liked the 3rd movie, in that it provided the necessary back story for WHY this is all happening, and now we can get back to the story that started with 1 and I thought was ingeniously continued in part 2. But I do hope this doesnt turn into some annoying teenage girl ghost

I didn't wanna know WHY. I liked the idea of it being random. The idea of this demon turning this person's whole existence into anarchy for no apparent reason is scary as shit to me.

Oh HELL yes.

THIS is the way to make sequels: use what's great about the original, keep those same ELEMENTS and THEMES - and EXPAND ON THE *STORY.* This really capitalizes on the setup of the previous three films...oh goodness, I'm really looking forward to this one.

I've seen it and I immediately thought of it while watching the trailer. That still doesn't make it bad. I like the execution of it, especially with the "Front door open, back door open" bit. It's all effective build up.

I dug the first one. I liked it more when it was what you didn't see , the effective silence and the building tension that was supposed to be scary. The ending of the last one took me completely out of the series. I'll pay $1 at some point for this

The first films in most horror franchises tend to be good. The first Halloween was about the nature of evil, the first Nightmare on Elm Street examined empowerment, the first Exorcist was a representation of a crisis of faith, the first Hellraiser was an abstract look at familial dysfunction, the first Scream put an honest mirror up to the genre, and the first Saw was about how morality itself can be abused.
They all share a trait with each other that every one of their sequels all fail to

I want to be satan

And eat souls of children, that's what is happening here. Don't you see it. First one was boring as fuck, ending was awesome. Wasn't scary nor creepy. 2nd one was a waste of fuckin time. It was so damn boring. The 3rd was the best one so far more excitement then the first 2 combine. This one seems to be really good too. They are just mindless dumb films to see with people and scream to, to make people more scared.

SOOOO Boring!!!

I am right with you! I have watched all of them so far only because of the hype and the hope of them actually becoming somewhat scary as the sequels go on... but I have jumped out of my seat more from watching Casper than these movies. I have pondered over and over how anyone could think these are scary and have come to the conclusion that it must be the new generation that has never seen a horror film before.

Hated the series from the start

I never found this crap scary, the acting was abysmal and the characters act so idiotic the whole time it gets unbearable. The first one was just funny stupid, the second one was soooo boring I had to watch it in two parts. The third was just retarded. This one looks even worse somehow.

I'm a fan of the franchise myself. Although this trailer did nothing for me. Then again neither did any of the other trailers for the previous movies. I went in to see each one expecting each one to be the worse thing ever and each one surprised me to be pretty clever and creepy. I'll reserve judgement for this one as well until I actually see it. How can they actually make a fourth one work but then again I said that about three as well?

I've always been a huge fan of the series. I have to admit the sequels have devolved into being 90 minutes of jump scares, but that's the reason people go see it in the first place. I can safely say that the PA films are SO ENTERTAINING seeing it with a bunch of people in the theaters. Part of the fun is seeing how others react to it and the joy of screaming with them every minute.

As for the trailer, it scared me, which is no surprise. I have to mention the use of Skype has already been
