Trivia

The film has only four characters in it. Making Paranormal Entity (2009) one of the most minimalist films ever made. Indeed, the film's director, Shane Van Dyke also stars in it as Thomas Finley. See more »

Goofs

When Thomas shows the hand-scrawled note to Dr. Lauren, he reads it as "Maron." But when Ellen originally wrote it, her hand trailed off the paper, leaving the end of the word scribbled on the glass of the table. Dr. Lauren would have only seen the word "Marc" on the paper. See more »

Not horrible, not great
9 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie gets a much higher review than it deserves from me because of Samantha. She made the movie way more enjoyable than it should be. It was somewhat spooky and the demon seemed more dangerous than in Paranormal Activity, but there were some major issues. For one thing there were almost no personal items in the house. There weren't even any clothes in Samantha's closet!!! The set was totally unbelievable. Also the demon could be in two places at once, could walk upside down, etc. Why would a demon like this bother with one family when it could take over the world? Watching Samantha however made me forget the issues, so I'll give it a 7.
