Trivia

Though it may seem like a novel concept, incorporating a laptop camera into "Paranormal Activity 4" played an important practical role in the filmmaking. "Anything can go on behind, and she wouldn't necessarily know unless the person on the other end of the video chat told her that it was behind her," Schulman said. "It just seemed like a really fun way to carry a camera and film yourself because otherwise there's no other way to shoot close-ups in a 'Paranormal' movie. Usually you're filming forward, so this way you can actually get a reaction shot." See more »

The time tags in the lower left-hand corner of many of the cameras disappear and reappear several times throughout the film. See more »

Paranormal activity 4 no one to watch
17 March 2013 | by adi_2002See all my reviews

A friend asked me, "have you seen Paranormal Activity 4?" But how ironic in that he said, he gave me to understand that it is not a good movie and so it was. Surely is the weakest in the series, special effects, acting, the story has its purpose. I thought PA 3 is the latest and I won't be doing another because there we see how it all began with the two sisters being terrorized by the appearance of the house. This is a stuffing that wants to say what happened with Hunter, who now call him Robbie. The only thing good in this movie is Katie's appearance, but it is for a short time, so she fails to save this stupid movie. And the end? What does it mean? From where appeared all those people? Who are they? Again remains a question mark. Is it still a sequel? If so, let's hope it will be better so that fans of the series will not be disappointed.
