Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension
Why we’re excited
Come on—admit it. When one of these comes out, you’re always slightly curious as to what the new gimmick will be: the bedroom tripod, the swimming-pool cam, the oscillating-fan perspective. For the most part, that curiosity has been rewarded, but will it continue to be? Of course, the plot of this chapter in the series has been kept tightly under wraps (as they all have been before opening), but the trailer indicates the essentials: house, terrified kid, video technology.
What could go wrong?
We’re hearing a lot of loud booms in the trailer (the cheapest move in the horror playbook) and—for shame, guys—there appears to be a lot of CGI. Let’s hope they stick to eerie realism for the rest of it. Otherwise, it might be tempting to Netflix and chill on Halloween.
