The ‘Paranormal Activity’ films – so far four and counting – took what is normally a pretty creepy idea (basically people forced into having to deal with malign, invisible entities) and ran the entire premise into the ground. The films are in ‘found-footage’ style, which means people run about with cameras in situations where doing so defies any sense of logic or common sense.
Hmmm. A bunch of demonic beings are closing on me. If I were to put this camera down and actually run, I might stand a chance…So why don’t I do it (other than the needs of the script, that is)?
This addition seems to use Hispanic actors and actresses as main characters, and while this is great news for Latino actors and actresses, the movie itself looks as lame as most of the other films in the series that proceeded it.
