The Ghost Dimension isn’t exactly frightening — the setup is so well-worn now that it’s hard to be particularly startled by what transpires — but it’s able to wring sufficient dread out of this franchise’s go-to fears.
I really do not understand why so much criticism of the horror movies, it was a movie with homey feel with a history drama, would not be the same negativity, terror is often not taken seriously, let's take a chance, I enjoyed the film
The Paranormal Activity movies have always been about carnival-ride sensations, the narrative through-line secondary. That’s fortunate, because those seeking closure to what continuity there has been will go home mostly disappointed.
There may well be new and novel ways to spark audience shivers from not-so-bright homeowners inexplicably using their cameraphones to check out bumps in the night, but this series clearly has neither the patience nor the inclination to look for them anymore.
The movie’s climactic exorcism jamboree provides some relief from the movie’s overwhelming dullness, and the final segments put the movie’s 3-D to use, but overall, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension feels like the last wheeze of a played-out series.
The first Paranormal Activity film to leave a sour taste in my mouth when the credits smashed on screen, THE GHOST DIMENSION is interested in telling a good story but sadly loses focus in the end. There are definitely some scary set pieces but overall the writers here (4 of them, for a freaking PA movie? come on) take the mythology all over the place, losing that fun sense of dread the other five capture. Hopefully the sequel Next of Kin will make me feel better.
Paranormal Activity has never been a really good saga but it was still at least a little bit entertaining.This movie had a great premise but it unfortunately fell into the clichés and the CGI effects were horribly **** acting was not that bad and the movie was entertaining (mostly due to the last half hour) so it was not a complete waste of time.
If this is supposed to be the end of the franchise, what a whimper to go out on. After the dismal fourth film and the interesting fifth film that breathed some new life into the franchise, Ghost Dimension offers little more than a few effective jump scares and a wholly unconvincing plot.
