Paranormal Activity :The Ghost Dimension has very little as a horror movie that can scare you. Whatever little is there to horrify is all reserved for the final twenty minutes or so.
Until that time, it is more or less boring and as a horror movie; PA The Ghost Dimension is a failed attempt in catching up to match the excitement and horror of the very first part.
People who have watched all the six parts (correct me if I am wrong) know very well that the franchise was on the downward slide. Its too much now with all the thrills vanishing into thin air with nothing fresh to say. So the bottom line here is that its high time the franchise gets a much needed full stop.
In an all too familiar storyline, a couple Riyan and Emily move to their newly created home along with their little daughter Leila. Another couple join soon them. Strange things start happening and the family realize that their daughter has an invisible friend who has something bad for the family.
Just like all the series, its the camera from a third person’s viewpoint through which the activities are captured.
The problem with the movie and for most of the movies from this genre are that they are running out of steam and failing to create something fresh in treatment.
PA The Ghost Dimension is shot partly in 3D but with very little effects to boast about. Just to show the presence of the ghostly figure, they have gone in for the third dimensional view but it has not worked out and at the same time didn’t do anything good for the movie.
In a nutshell, its a disappointing film offering no thrills at all. I wouldn’t recommend Paranormal Activity : The Ghost Dimension for a watch. The rating is one and a half out of five.
Rating – 1.5 / 5
