The Kidd Vs. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4

Published at: Oct. 19, 2012, 10:54 a.m. CST

The line in the sand was drawn three years ago with the first PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. Either you enjoy what the films in this series bring to the table as far as haunted house movies are concerned, or you aren't affected by them at all. I've long held that what you believe, as far as the paranormal world, really affects where you stand on these films. If you're one who believes in ghosts and spirits and demons and supernatural occurrences, then you're more likely to saddle up at the plausibility that something nefarious is slamming doors and banging on the walls and terrorizing these people with other tricks of the trade. If you don't buy into any of that stuff, then obviously these movies aren't for you. I've been an unapologetic supporter of the PARANORMAL series since that first film. I've often said they terrify more than anything, because while jump scares don't really fit into this model, there's a much more unsettling and far lingering feeling that comes along with the idea that a demon may be lurking in your house with possession within his powers. That doesn't change much with PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4, and, as a fan of its predecessors, this one is right up my alley. 

Look... you know what you're going to get here. Shot in a found-footage style with handheld cameras and, in this instance, computer cameras typically reserved for video chatting, which help it feel a bit more 21st century, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 picks up on telling the story of another family caught in the path of some creepy things happening around them as the result of some greater force in the spirit world. Things start to get strange once this loner kid Robbie (Brady Allen) shows up, who we get the sneaking suspicion might be the disappeared Hunter from the second film. After all, he was carried off by his Aunt Katie in demon form, so there's no telling what that child would be capable of now. 

The teenaged Alex (Kathryn Newton) is who we're following this time, her being the most technologically advanced member of the family. As a result, we're finally matched up with a likable innocence that none of the previous film's protagonists carried with them. While we were initially drawn to Katie in the first film, it was her dick boyfriend Micah that kept pushing us to maybe want some bad things to happen to him, even if it meant our pulse raced a little faster in anticipation of what those things were. However, paired with her funny high school boyfriend Ben (Matt Shively), there's enough personality between the both of them to raise the stakes just a bit in PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4, because no one wants to see bad things happen to nice people, particularly kids. 

But Toby (the name of the demon established in the last film) doesn't really care what you want, and, while the motives of who and what he wants this time seem a bit up in the air, he'll substitute answers for those questions with some pretty chilling moments that will have your goosebumps having goosebumps. There's a slightly different buiild to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 that breaks from the rest of the series, in that a lot of the smaller instances of the spirit world appearing have been reduced. I get it. How many times can you show a door moving on its own before it really starts to lose its impact? I would have liked to see directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman fill in that void with something else, something that slowly escalates the tension we've become accustomed to. There are certainly some visually interesting things they've done this time to expand the world of the paranormal a bit - you'll see once they incorporate the Xbox Kinect into the mix - but it doesn't have the same feeling of foreboding of some of their better tricks.

  

Schulman and Joost use quite a bit of sight obstruction this time in order to build your terror, as it's easier to create fright for yourself at what you can't see, whether it's behind someone who's position close up on the computer camera prevents you from seeing what may be behind them at any given time or with a line of sight blocked by an open refridgerator door that won't let us have a glimpse at what might be waiting in the background. It's a tactic that doesn't alway deliver scares, nor should it, but when the directors do decide to pull the trigger on it, you'll be letting the screams fly with reckless abandon, including one of the better moments of the overall franchise that uses your expectations and basis of knowledge from the previous films against you to get your pulse racing. It can't be safe for a movie to make your heart beat that fast.

There is no game-changing gimmick this time out, like the oscillating fan of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3, but as PA4 builds towards its conclusion, you're locked into a 20 minute sequence of events so intense, it'll leave you shaking. To me, that final night in the first film has been the gold standard of how terrified these films can make you feel. And while I'll always hold it in special regard for being the first, the ending to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 comes pretty damn close to matching it. It is absolutely terrifying. 

I think the film gets away from Alex for too long towards the end, which is a shame as Newton really commands that you root for her to make it out of this unfortunate situation okay, something that her parents or even her little brother can't quite do when things turn more in their direction as Schulman and Joost haven't established them strongly enough as people we should care about. The film also misses Shively for a good stretch, as he's able to create many of the film's lighter moments, which then allow the scares to arrive with more intensity. 

This chapter in the story also creates more unanswered questions than the other films. The mystery that comes with trying to figure out the source of the movie's misdirection is a nice addition, but it would have been nice for PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 to give me something I could hold onto moving forward, something a bit more concrete in explaining a possible expansion of the coven mythology rather than my own speculation that may or may not be what is actually happening in the film, just what I perceived to be. 

However, the mark of a good horror film is how it makes you feel, and, in that light, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 delivers the goods. I've been frightened by the previous three films in the series, and I was frightened by the fourth just the same. You'll be gripping your armrest in fear as the film picks up steam, and there's no question that PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 continues to do what the PARANORMAL series does best: it chills, it scares and it terrifies... and that's plenty enough for me.

    by ThoseArentPillows

    I don't believe in ghosts for one second (it's like believing in god...pleeeeeaaaaasssseeeee). And I LOVE and get scared by good ghost stories. PA1 and 3 were pretty effective in my opinion. Time to re-think your 'long held beliefs'??

    Wrap it up

    by You Have MY Voice

    I enjoy these films. I do. But I think it's time to wrap up this iteration with the next movie, or two more at max. Thing is, I think a "final" movie should be in a more traditional scripted format, or at least incorporate that into the found-footage style. One of the things that make the PA films work is that there's hardly ever an exposition dump. Details and clues come out in conversation (including a couple of key clues in PA4). To wrap this up satisfactorily, though, I feel that there needs to be (or will need to be) some degree of exposition that ties everything together. The origin of the demon, the missing videotapes, the importance of Hunter, the motivations and endgame of the demon, the story behind the coven, and the spoilery stuff from PA4 should all be tied together, and casual conversation in front of a webcam might seem a little forced. I'm personally hoping they utilize the teen from PA2 as the thread that ties everything together, given her stake in what's happened. She'd be early-20s by the films' timeline...I'd imagine that seeing and knowing all that happened would motivate her a bit, yes?

  • I just fundamentally disagree with Kidd on the most important thing in a Horror film is how it makes you feel. There are plenty of good Horror movies that are good films in addition to being scary. Think I'll go watch one of those instead.

    I mean the majority of the movie is more of the creepy stuff. Oooooh and door shut on it's own. That cup is floating by itself, than the last 20 min you get action were someone is jerked around. And than something pops up on screen. OMG so terrifying LOL yeah I don't get it.

    So you're saying that if you don't believe in vampires, werewolves, or alien visitations that you can't find those things scary in a movie? I have seen no evidence of the supernatural whatsoever but I find these movies scary because I have IMAGINATION.

    Are the scenes from the trailer in the actual movie?

    by Bruno

    I don't hate the PA movies. They're funny. People get scared of strange things so I don't judge. But the 3rd one was ridiculous. The ending that everyone says was so "terrifying" was dumb. And the movie had none of the scenes that made the trailers look good. After 3, I checked out. I'll watch the new one on DVD. Maybe there will be actual fucked up shit happening instead of 75 minutes of "OMG WHO DID THAT?!" and 10 minutes of actual things happening at the end.

    'what you believe . . . affects where you stand' - 100% CORRECT

    by Sluggolicious

    I'm not a delusional idiot and am very well aware that, if something isn't real, then it doesn't exist. However, I went to the theater to see the first PA after hearing how great and 'scary' it was. I think I nearly fell asleep a few times. It was the most boring, chil-less 'horror' movie I've ever wasted my $12 on (Manhattan prices). Without a legitimate threat to the protagonists, you're just watching a series of cheaply done effects. Count me out of this one.

    Completely disagree with Kidd

    by Kevinicus

    This was EASILY the worst of the 4 movies. The "plot" is not advanced at all. It ends in the same place it was before the movie started. It was completely unnecessary. The scene at the end of the credits probably advances the plot more than the movie does, but it's in Spanish and I don't know what's going on really. And, it's very slow. It takes forever to get going, and when it does finally pick up at the end it is quick and not at all creative. They have pretty much given up on coming up with reasons for people to have cameras all the time. They make an attempt at a few with the computers, as absurd as it is, but the rest had no reasoning at all and is moronic. And, as usual, the skeptics of the characters are so anal about not paying attention to anything that it's just so ridiculous. Oh, there's massive damage to my home, my daughter is hysterical, I absolutely CANNOT take 2 minutes to watch a little bit of video that she just happened to be recording because she can't put the shit down apparently. Nope, can't do it. Really, very little good about this film unless you like watching young teens flirt with each other.

    My favorite part of the Paranormal movies...

    by Pat

    is in the commercials when they have a "hidden" infra-green camera pointed at all the "audience" members showing them jumping and popcorn flying out of their nostrils. Then they interview the "audience" members after the show saying things like, "totally awesome!", "Oh my God, that was so scary!" and my favorite, "Whooooooooooo! Paranormal Activitehhhhh yeahhhhh!!!" It's like having a Superbowl commercial during a regular season football game.

    Exactly. I read that and was like, "WTF?" Do you have to also believe in acid-spitting, stomach gestating aliens to be afraid of the "Alien" films? I'm a total non-believer and these films freak me the hell out. It obviously has more to do with what you find disturbing and possibly even your level of intelligence (all the moutbreathers I know love "Saw", for instance).

    by lprothro

    that's a name that the spirt gives to a small child in the 2nd film while it's masquerading as an imaginary friend, so within the context of supernatural lore it makes sense---jeez.

  • Also kind of disappointed to hear this doesn't advance the story in any way. From the poster I got the impression this would kind of wrap up the story. That's right, I'm vaguely familiar with the story even though I haven't seen the films. I don't know why.

  • Oct. 19, 2012, 1:55 p.m. CST

    So these have become Saw 2.0

    by mr.underwater

    One pumped out every October until every last nickel is squeezed (usually around part 6 or so). Even the Freddys and Jasons took a year off here and there to recharge the batteries. But I guess the new box office mentality is if you ain't making money, you're losing it.

  • The ceiling fan at the top of the Palmer's house was always used as a creepy image during that series. The thought of it still gives me chills (I first watch Twin Peaks when I was 13, so it's stuck with me since then!) Is that the kind of thing we're talking about here? Because if so, that's pretty lame that everyone "loves" that so much... since it wasn't even an original idea. Anyone care to briefly explain?

  • Oct. 19, 2012, 2:11 p.m. CST

    they're too low-denominator to use Twin Peaks as a reference

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    Peaks was populist in its appeal at the time, but the audience they're aiming for were not alive in the early nineties. I'd be surprised if they lifted something so subtle.

  • Peaks was subtle and IIRC the fan was a very obscure, very indirect connection to Maddie's murder. Kidd makes it sound like the demon does something with the fan that freaks the audience out. (I'm hoping it involves people getting dragged backwards, possibly because of a rope attached to the fan, but I will try to keep an open mind about what it actually is.)

  • Oct. 19, 2012, 2:23 p.m. CST

    The oscillating fan

    by Bobo_Vision

    It was a pretty clever gimmick. In order to survey both the living room and the kitchen of their house with one camera, they attach it to a fan that slowly oscillates from side to side, and then as the fan goes to one side and then returns to the other, there would be something there that wasn't there before. It was clever, and a first for found-footage films.

    That does sound fun. I wouldn't call it a ''game-changer,'' but then again I so rarely agree with anything Kidd says, so I shouldn't be surprised. Paranormal Activity makers: Feel free to use my idea about the guy being dragged backwards into a ceiling fan. It's golden!

    Clever?

    by Meathook

    How can you call anything about these movies 'clever'? All it is is jump scares with nothing at all even happening until the end when things get thrown around a bit. There is not story, not plot, nothing. All 4 movies have maybe enough plot to fill one movie, of at all. Comparing these movies to Saw is rediculous. The only thing they have in common is that they each come out every year and the people who don't like them have gotten tired of them and bitch incessantly about them. That is all. Every single Saw was intimately more clever than all Paranormal Activities put together. Call Saw, rediculous; torture porn; convoluted; etcetera, but it is definitely infinitely more clever than PA. I can fully understand not liking the Saw movies, and liking the PA movies, but don't compare the two. PA is slow build up with jump scares and no story whatsoever, and Saw is gore filled mayhem with an attempt at making a point and with a intricate weaving of stories. Whether or not you think the story failed or was convoluted or whatever doesn't change that fact.

  • Oct. 19, 2012, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Fan

    by Meathook

    And I meant to mention the fan bit. If that is the definition of clever for these movies, I feel bad for your ability to reason. Big deal they changed the mode of the same scare of something appearing when it wasn't there before. Holding the camera and looking away just to turn back and find something there is the exact same thing. You might as well say it was clever to have a car in the shot blocking throne view then move from view to reveal something rather than have a refrigerator door in the view. 'Wow, can you believe they used a car!!! Holy shit!! What will they come with next?? Using a phone to take video??? WHAT. . . THE. . . FUCK??? Make princess Lelia a bad guy??? That would never happen!!!

    It's about building tension

    by Outlaw24

    There is a subtlety to the art of building tension in a scene. Sure, these films may not be the epitome of artistic film-making, but one thing they do attempt to improve upon are ways to build tension in a scene. Is it the same "something there that wasn't before" scare? Sure. But people like having the same old thing given to them in a new package. And what they are doing is finding interesting ways of wrapping up those scares in unique tension-building ways. If that kind of subtlety isn't your cup of tea, then these films are not for you, and there's really no reason to concern yourself with them at all. I would never list these films as the best, but they do what they do quite well. Or at least, they have up to this point.

    Look, I believe in the paranormal. Ghosts, poltergeists, cursed places, etc. It's interested me my whole life Sooo... You're saying I can't believe/like that stuff because I thought "Paranormal Activity 1" sucked 11 on the scale of suckiness? I only had one good thing to say about that movie: In "Blair Witch" there were 3 annoying characters I couldn't wait to die. In "Paranormal Activity 1", there were only 2 annoying people I couldn't wait to die. So I have an interest in weird stuff. But if I don't like the "Paranormal Activity" series, I'm just a poser? And I bet you liked "The Mothman Prophesies" without ever reading the book... Yeah, it was based on an actual book. And was NOTHING like the movie.

    by Meathook

    These movies are not below me. I just don't understand how they can be called clever, or how anybody can say there is any sort of plot. There is a vague story somewhere tying these together, otherwise it's just a bunch of jump scares. And saying that these are about building tension make no sense either. Nothing at all happens, then suddenly bam, few minutes of things happening. I just don't get it. Why do I watch these movies? Because these types of movies are what took over after the Saw franchise ended. I would much rather watch gory movies but for some reason people can't seem to handle that. So if I want to see new horror, this junk is all I get.

That's like saying I wouldn't understand what it's like to be married unless I watched "I Love Lucy". Okay then... Oh, so I don't know what I'm talking 'cause I didn't like "Blair Witch". Sorry. It sucked. May I repeat? It SUCKED. Like a Hoover. As a former film student, I can tell you ALL film projects end in tears, everyone hating each other else, and not knowing what to do. And hoping each other one dies. That film was poorly acted, with nothing but Ed-Wood-esque "special effects"? Tell me, who the hell runs with a camera behind someone pointing behind you and screaming, "What the FUCK is that?" and you don't swing around? Lousy actors and lousy screenwriters/directors who've gone nowhere. Back to their pre-acting jobs, from what I've read. "Blair Witch" was nothing more that the old urban tale of "The Hook on the Car Door Handle". Oh, I believe in scary shit. Because I've actually experienced it myself. But since you're the expert on all things paranormal, tell me this: What's the common factor in poltergeist cases? What are some of the clues one can get if they walk into a haunted room? Despite the Will Smith movies, who ARE the "Men In Black" and what makes them so weird? What's the real story behind "Mothman"? I've been a "Fox Mulder" since I could read. I know cool paranormal from formulaic "paranormal". I'd say you don't. Uh, and I hate to tell you, but Lovecraft made up all his stuff. I'm only interested in "real world" paranormal activity. Which these movies, AND "Blair Witch" could never hope to live up to.
