| Each New Paranormal Activity is Worse
I really wish people would stop making hit movies into franchises. I guess from a monetary standpoint, why not milk something for all its worth? From an artistic standpoint, however, movie makers should only make sequels if the original material planned for it (i.e. Lord of the Rings). To add more stories after the fact is to dilute what made it a success in the first place. The first Paranormal Activity was one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen and it wasn't because of some formula that you could apply to another movie. This is exactly what they are doing with each successive movie. It was like they thought "Oh it really freaked people out when something invisible yanked her out of her bed" and so they just keep doing the same thing over & over. IT'S NOT SCARY ANYMORE! There were certain things that happened in the first one, like the main girl actually becoming possessed and the way her character just changed, that you cannot just repeat. Anyway, this particular film is basically just a teenage girl Skyping with her boyfriend the whole time and maybe like 2 scary things happen in the whole movie, but you've been waiting for it so much that it's anticlimactic when it finally happens. The idea of this spooky little boy seems to have potential but in the end he's not spooky at all. Dear writers & producers of Paranormal Activity, it is time to move on to something new.
