'Paranormal 4' Hits the Web: Official Trailer Debuts
"Paranormal Activity" have once again come up with a crazed-demonic-filled film for lovers of the horrific. "Paranormal Activity 4" is back with supposedly more scares and a better explanation of the demonic presence.
So where does the film start off? "Paranormal 4" follows after the disappearance of Katie and nephew, Hunter from "Paranormal Activity 2." Film School Rejects summarizes the plot as follows: "Part 4 takes place five years after the events of the first two films. A young boy and his Mom (Katie and Hunter, now called Robbie) move into a nice suburb across the street from a family with a son who is Robbie's age, Jackson (Tommy Miranda), a teenage daughter named Alice (Kathryn Newton), and apparently a lot of MacBooks with built-in cameras. Robbie shows up suspiciously in their backyard clubhouse late one night, and this begins their exposure to young Robbie's odd behavior."
What makes "Paranormal Activity 4" different from its first three predecessors? Well, once again viewers are given cleverly laid pieces of a demonic puzzle along with the occasional jab at humor. Interestingly enough, "Paranormal Activity 4" infuses some testosterone into the film with the presence of Alice's boyfriend, Alex.
As usual, viewers will see a lot of dizzying situations where Alice brings along a camera in intense scenes when it's obviously not needed. The trailer supposedly promises heart-pounding scenes enough to scare the hell out of viewers but on a scale of 1 to 10, the trailer runs low on a 7.
Still, with the franchise rolling over $580 million worldwide, "Paranormal Activity 4" might manage to roll in even a couple of bucks. The first three installments of the film did pull an amount of $8 million but still not enough to say the films were a box-office hit.
Take a look at the official trailer below for "Paranormal Activity 4" and decide if the film is worth seeing on the big screen or not.
