One of the most well-known horror franchises of the past decade is set to come to a close later this year, as the Paranormal Activity series will be taking its final bow.
Titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the movie is directed by editor Gregory Plotkin, who is making his feature film directorial debut with the project. Chloe Csengery reprises her role as Katie once again, joined this time by Brit Shaw, Chris J. Murray, and Olivia Taylor Dudley.
The film’s synopsis is as follows.
The Ghost Dimension, 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.
Producer Jason Blum has officially said that this will be the last entry into the Paranormal Activity franchise, which began with writer-director Oren Peli’s Paranormal Activity in 2007. The budget for all the films to date has been around $18 million, and this feature was shot in roughly 45 days. Katie is the only character who has shown up in every film in the franchise, played by both Katie Featherston and Chloe Csengery.
The film will open in the US and Canada on October 23rd. The trailer, alongside accompanying teasers, can be seen below.
