But has the film series exhausted itself creatively, and perhaps more importantly has it outstayed its welcome with its audience?
Paranormal Activity 4 takes place five years after Paranormal Activity 2, which ended with Katie’s (Featherston) dispatching of her sister’s family and the abducting of their baby, Hunter.
