This fall is filled with creepy movies, and the most frightening is finally here — find out how this chapter of the series will scare viewers!

The Paranormal Activity films are super-scary, and after the third chapter revealed some of the evil’s origins as a prequel, the next chapter is back to horrify audiences with the devilish Katie. A new family is being terrorized by a VERY angry demon, and the shaky camerawork brings the horror straight to you. Check out five reasons why you should brave this terrifying new chapter!

1) The movie is super-duper scary! went to a special screening of Paranormal Activity 4, presented by The Peggy Siegal Company, and EVERYONE in the theatre was screaming like crazy. The tension was so thick that you could cut it with a knife!

2) The young couple in the movie is so likeable!

The biggest criticism of the previous films is that the leads were annoying and shrill. But the lead couple of Alex (Kathryn Newton) and Ben (Matt Shively) are a very believable and have some super-witty banter together.

3) There are thrilling twists and turns everywhere!

The Paranormal Activity series gives fans a consistent set of thrills, and there are plenty of new psychological elements to psych the viewer out — in addition to the numerous smaller scares that go bump in the night. This fourth film takes the occult ideas to the next level of terror, and by the time the thrilling conclusion plays out, you will be scared silly!

4) The onscreen tricks are super-creative!

Just as the third installment upped the scares by featuring an oscillating fan camera, PA4 takes it to another level with video web chats and Xbox Kinect. These high-tech ghost hijinks will make you think twice before you sign online in a dark house!

5) There are creepy kids!

I don’t know about you, but NOTHING is spookier than little demonic children. The two haunted kids (Aiden Lovekamp and Brady Allen) bring some evil elements to the movie, and it was hard to sleep after knowing that they could sneak around and be weird!

Will YOU go see Paranormal Activity 4 this weekend, HollywoodLifers?
