Much better than the majority of paranormal activity sequels. It spices up the formula in a fun way and culminates in a third act that’s perfect for the Halloween season. Possibly the best entry in the series since the first film, or at least ranked right below 3. That’s an extremely low bar considering the absolute dregs of the series but hey, it’s something. Go in with the right expectations and you’ll have a fun time.
Man, I’m just so impressed with this show. Despite a slow start, there’s not a wasted episode in the bunch. Builds and builds to a glorious, enthralling conclusion… while still maintaining the small pockets of humanity and empathy that made the journey worthwhile to begin with. That’s a strange feat for a show that also delivers the goods as a fall season chiller. Flanagan’s best work so far. Great performances too. I could listen to Hamish Linklater recite the phone book.
