Six years later, the Paranormal Activity franchise comes to an end on October 23rd with Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the fourth official sequel and the sixth installment in the series (The Marked Ones is considered a spinoff). We will finally meet Toby, and all questions will at last be answered.
“It’s coming to an end. This is it, the finale,” producer Jason Blum promises. “We’re saying it before the movie opens. We’re not going to grind this horror franchise into the ground. This will keep Paranormal Activity as part of this culture and this particular time in a really fantastic way.”
“We couldn’t go just teasing,” continued Blum. “All the questions that everyone has asked from the past Paranormal Activity films: What does Toby look like? What’s the backstory to the families? These questions have been teased out. Now they will be answered.”
On tap today is the trailer for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, a film that seems eager to inject a whole lot of life into a franchise that was running low on gas. The beauty of the series is the way each new installment continues the original story, and this one looks to be the ultimate example of that.
In 3D and featuring a plot that connects directly to the events of the previous films, The Ghost Dimension promises to end the franchise on a satisfying note, and if it truly is the end, this final sequel could indeed be something quite special. Check out the trailer below, along with the plot crunch!
Directed by Gregory Plotkin, the brand new sequel follows a new family, the Fleeges — father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George) — who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage.
When they look through the camera’s lens, they begin to see the paranormal activity happening around them — including the re-emergence of young Kristi and Katie.
