The anticipated first trailer for "Paranormal Activity 4" has finally been dropped in full. Just like in the first three movies, this upcoming fourth installment of the found-footage horror film franchise seems to present similar elements, such as person talking to a camera while creepy figure looms from behind, as well as other supernatural phenomenon taking place in a house and being caught on video tape.
The trailer doesn't reveal too many details of the upcoming movie, but judging from the scenes, it seems like the story takes place in present days. A blond girl, who seems to be the main character in the film, is seen having a live chat with a boy when suddenly the camera gets shaky and a mysterious figure with a long hair appears in the background.
"PA4" has been scheduled to open wide in the U.S. on October 19. Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman tackle the directing duty. The forthcoming horror movie still hasn't revealed its official plotline.
