There isn't much to be said about PA4 other than the reality that the series is losing its touch. The scares are noticeably more lazy, lame, predictable, and less creative. The story doesn't make a lick of sense, but then again, did the story ever matter in these films? The audience is also given the short end of the stick regarding the climax as it is surprisingly short and unfulfilling compared to the previous films. I will admit there were a few moments of dark, if not mean-spirited, scenes as the younger protagonists are put into danger. Additionally, a few nods to classic horror films, such as Poltergeist, The Shining, and The Omen, can never hurt. But PA4 is overall a disappointing and wholly forgettable experience, caught in the law of diminishing returns that most horror films fall into. 4/10
I think that some people are being a bit harsh on this movie. Sure, it will have it's downfalls like actually seeing the monster in some parts walking around and such, I mean what do you expect, it's a sequel, there are going to be parts where "it's been done before" people run out of ideas, it happens. I mostly found it entertaining in the parts where the family and Alex's boyfriend were talking. I actually wanted to know more about them than the monster. It did jump at some parts like a horror movie should make me do.
So, overall I would give this movie 2 stars and a half.
this was the stupidest movie and so goddamn boring
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
