‘Paranormal Activity 4′ Trailer 2 Reveals Katie & Hunter’s Fate

Published 3 years ago by , Updated June 4th, 2014 at 10:09 am,

While the individual films may not do the greatest job of explaining things, if you step back and look at the story of the Paranormal Activity franchise as a whole, it’s starting to become fairly clear: witches promised a female members of a certain bloodline to a demon who would collect the girls’ first male heir as payment for… something or other.

Chronologically speaking, Paranormal Activity 4 is set in 2011, five years after the events of PA 1& 2 – twenty-four years after the events of PA3 – and we now follow a young girl named Alice (Kathryn Newton) who begins to document the creepy things that have been happening in and around her house, ever since a woman and her strange little boy moved into the area. When the young boy (named “Robbie”) is taken in by Alice’s mother, it starts a series of paranormal events connected to a dark past of demonic hauntings.

PA4‘s tagline – “All of the activity has led to this…” – would seem to be accurate, as we see in this trailer that everything from the fate of Hunter – Kristi’s son from Paranormal Activity 2 – to evidence of the cult that sold young Kristi and Katie to a demon at the end of Paranormal Activity 3. It seems as though with this latest intstallment – which brings back PA3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

There also seems to be a larger cast of characters than indicated before, with Alice sharing screen time with her boyfriend, mother, little brother, and creepy houseguest, little Robbie (aka Hunter?). As per usual with the franchise, we get the an array of home video setups and set pieces – this time upgraded to the more modern age of web cams, HD recording, better night vision effects and generally better methods of constructing the found-footage format that made Paranormal Activity famous.

Whether or not this fourth film will wrap things up for good, or simply propel us down a new avenue of demonic terror, remains to be seen. As always, the answer likely resides with the box office returns.

Paranormal Activity 4 will be in theaters on October 19, 2012.

  1. I think this movie is going to be great what do you guys think? Wishing this has more plot than other ones!

    • I’ve really enjoyed the others, despite their shortcomings. Yes I hope like hell that the plot will thicken, but if it gives me the willies, that’ll be good too. :-)

    • These movies are tiresome and repetitive crap for people afraid of their own shadows. Seen one, seen them all.

    • I’m enough of this serial. It all ended in the first two parts. This is just wasting of time. If you want to watch real horror movie, watch Exorcist or Shining.

      • Seriously im fed up of people moaning about these movies, nobody making u watch them

  2. I think this movie is going to be great what do you guys think? Wishing this has more plot than other ones

  3. Ive enjoyed them. What I want them to do (hopefully) is to end it. Within that end have it all tied up nicely.

    Maybe have the final frame show Hunter looking at the camera with a twinkle in his eye……..

    • alright! nice one haha funny

  4. everybody knows that what’s shown in the trailers won’t be in the film!

    • and I have no problem with that. Keeps it fresh.

  5. now it looks really interesting compared to the terrible randomly put together viral clips I keep seeing that are not scary.

  6. I enjoy watching these movies, but yes they need to make this longer and good scenes.

  7. This one looks good but I almost wish theyd go more into the legend of the third one. I feel like too many questions are left unanswered which confuses viewers. I’m sure it’ll bring in the money as all of these movies do but there’s only so much more they can add to these movies so I feel like the end of this franchise is very close.

  8. This movie doesn’t look scary, I mean it’s a little kid who haunting the people. And why can’t they be smart enough to put him in an orphanage?

    • Yea, let’s put a demon infested child in an orphanage. Whilst said demon can break your neck, as well as cause havoc around you by breaking stuff. Good job thinking this comment through.

  9. I loved it I hope to see the whole movie but I have to watch it when it comes out on DVD

  10. i just wish the movies would end already!!!!!!
    goodness it has taken 4 movies to expand something that simple!
    i understand 95% of the movies an i have not even seen the 4 one yet…
    i still have some questions that are not in the movie !?!?!?!?!?
