We’ve reached the last chapter in the Paranormal Activity saga and, based on the trailer, it aims to pull together all the loose ends of the previous films. That includes finally showing us the monster, Toby.
The first trailer for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension dropped today (watch above), and it shows little girls Katie and Krisi are back, communicating across space and time and answering a lot of questions raised by the previous four films (and one spin-off) in the series.
“We couldn’t go just teasing,” producer Jason Blum told USA Today. “All the questions that everyone has asked from the past Paranormal Activity films: What does Toby look like? What’s the backstory to the families? These questions have been teased out. Now they will be answered.”
Some elements of the film will be the same as previous set-ups. This time it is the Fleeges who move into a house and discover a box of unsettling video tapes in their basement. But they also discover a video camera that lets them see the ghosts and paranormal entities in the air around them.
Is this really the end for Paranormal Activity?
“At some point, might there be a reboot? You never know. We’ve never discussed it,” Blum said. “We made this movie like it’s the end of this Paranormal line for sure.”
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is in theaters on Oct. 23.
