Review (Spoils): So the story of the now classic Paranormal Activity continues as the spooky Katie (Katie Featherston) returns and moves next door to a normal family of 4. We have the soccer mom (Alexondra Lee), the dick of a husband (Stephen Dunham), the young cute but typical teen girl (Kathryn Newton) and a young boy (Aiden Lovekamp). Out of nowhere a strange boy (Brady Allen) with socks and sandals needs to stay with the family because his mother has been taken away because she is sick. Once the boy enters their lives all strange things start to happen and it is affecting the young brother and the older teen daughter and boyfriend try to figure it all out by videotaping it all.
Ok this series has been going on forever. I did not find the first one amazing and I’m still shocked that this series has a strong following as it is pretty much the same thing in ever film and really…how people tape every single moment of their lives? We have the typical jumps, screams, dropping shit, walking kids in the dark, the creepy Katie and lots of shots of the young Alex which actually makes you feel like a dirty old pervert watching this film. The acting is actually not bad but there was too much of the same old in this film. You can’t keep using the same pulling by the feet scares when your into the forth entry of a series. It really starts to become old.
Rating: This movie was not slow but it was the same thing over and over with way to much why wouldn’t you. Like why wouldn’t you look back at the tapes during the whole event? Why wouldn’t you call the police? Why wouldn’t you tell the boyfriend to fucking knock and get the hell out of the fridge? Why wouldn’t you call the police/child services and say why is this strange boy living in my house as they just moved in? Why wouldn’t you tell your daughter to smarten up and calm down on the hormones and dump the boyfriend who tapes you sleeping? The only person/thing in this film that made total sense was the cat….so drink every time you see the cat!
