"Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension" stars Chris J. Murray, Brit Shaw, Dan Gill, and Ivy George. Released on October 23, 2015, the film has a family protecting their daughter from a sinister presence.
The film features the directorial debut of Gregory Plotkin, who served as the editor for the past four Paranormal Activity films. It is the sixth and final installment of the franchise and the first to be released in 3D. After six years of being terrified by demonic beings, we have finally come to the end of the activities that started in 2009. This is another film that I was originally planning on seeing in theaters, but couldn't due to Paramount's experimental strategy. So once again, I managed to watch it on video on demand. In case you're wondering, I have seen all of the Paranormal Activity films before this one, which were quite creepy, by the way. Does this installment successfully draw this horror series to a close?
Decent performances throughout.
Visual effects looked nice for its 3D version.
Solid uses of tension and creepy atmosphere.
The first act felt slow at times.
The story arc felt too familiar with the other Paranormal Activity films.
A couple of cheap jump scares.
Failed to capture the long-lasting disturbance and fright that the first film offered.
Final thoughts:"Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension" is a bitter and weak conclusion to the six-year-old franchise that failed to capitalize what made Paranormal Activity a scary good time at the movies. While it did have some nice visuals and a creepy atmosphere, it's kind of hard to believe that it took us five sequels to get our questions answered. If you're a fan of of the series, this film may be for you. It is available to watch on Video on Demand, and will be available on DVD and Blu-ray soon.
