The story continues. It’s been 5 years since Katie killed her family and stole baby Hunter and disappeared. Hunter has been missing since then. Now it’s 2011 and we’re following a new family in Henderson, Nevada. Alex (Kathryn Newton) and her family are just fine until a strange lady and her even stranger little boy, Robbie, move in across the street. Robbie is really creepy and he takes an unnatural interest in Wyatt, Alex’s adopted little brother. Strange things start happening around the house, and if you remember #3, you’ll know who the group of older ladies are who gather at the house across the street.

Actually the first Paranormal activity was not too bad mostly because it was so very unique and we had no idea what the heck was going on. #2 wasn’t so hot, and was a bit of a let down, and #3 might be the best of the four. This one is pretty decent. It has some real tension, and with the technologies of 2011, there a lot more options on how to wire up your house to catch the strange goings on. The weakness I guess is that it’s so predictable this time. After 4 of these, anyone in the audience could write the script. But even though it’s obvious to us, they can still startle us and make us jump. The tension mounts and builds to a fever pitch. It’s not as good as the third one, but it’s still worth watching. Turn the volume up, turn the lights off, and watch this one in the dark.

Another great kudo goes to the makers of this disk (The Universal folk). Unlike most of the recent films, this rental DVD has BOTH the theatrical version, and the extended unrated version. I am so sick of getting rental disks that have all the features stripped out and replaced with a non working menu that merely chides us to buy a copy if we want any DVD special stuff. I’ve ranted about this before, but it one of my pet peeves. We pay rental fees, decent ones, and we don’t want hundreds and thousands of DVD’s in the closet for films we only want to see once. No one has time to watch all the DVD’s in the box in the closet. It’s a major rip off and unfair. That’s my opinion. So thanks to the makers of this one for giving us a choice of which version we wanted to watch.
