Cinema Clips: Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

Posted By on Tue, Oct 27, 2015 at 9:01 AM


Trivia answer: In terms of percentage (the most profitable movie ever made) and possibly that ever will be, was Paranormal Activity. It cost around $15,000 and made close to $200 million—an astounding profit markup of 12,890 percent. That was six years ago, and we have reached the sixth movie, probably without you even noticing. Three of them did very well, but only the first one was worth a damn, so if Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is the end of the run, why did they wait so long? As a movie, it’s pretty awful, latching unnecessary 3-D onto the same formula they’ve always used. There’s another family with video cameras trying to understand what’s going on in their house. There just isn’t enough life in those elements to justify six movies. Or even three, if we’re being honest.
