Reviews Are Bad

PA4 is getting raked over the coals. It also comes on the heels of 'Sinister', so it'll be interesting to see how this one plays.

LAT has a round-up with lines like:

"Paranormal" film manages "to wring more scares out of empty rooms than previously thought possible."

"(The movie makers) ... rely on goosing the audience with false scares and bland jolts."

"Asymmetrically framed scenes, staccato editing techniques and oppressive ambient sound (and the ominous lack of a score) are substituted for any real narrative development, leaving a plot essentially consisting of a series of setups followed by frightening payoffs."

Here's Jeremy Jahns' take.
