Consensus: Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension ties up some of the franchise's lingering questions, but six films into the series, the thrills are mostly gone.

Such a tepid failure that it triggers catcalls from paying audiences.

If only Ghost Dimension spent more time in the ghost dimension and less time in the people dimension, we might have had something.

What once was a chilling spectacle of a series has become an unimaginative and tedious mess.

Presented in 3D, the special effects are more elaborate than usual, but the regressive/provocative idea that filmmaking and film-watching open windows on unhealthy influences (especially for the young) remains undeveloped.

At no point does anyone say, "put down the camera, bro. You're freaking me out." When do they think they're going to watch this stuff back? "Hey, let's crack open a few beers and watch those old tapes of us watching those old tapes." I can't see it.
