FAQ Contents

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension can be found here.

The Fleege family -- father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw), and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George), plus Ryan's brother Mike (Dan Gill) and family friend Skylar (Olivia Taylor Dudley) -- find themselves caught up in the cult of the Midwife witches as the demon Toby comes closer to obtaining a corporeal body. Mike records it all on a camera found with some old tapes that show young Katie (Chloe Csengery) and Kristi (Jessica Tyler Brown) practicing supernatural abilities with a man named Kent (Don McManus). As Mike and Ryan watch the tapes, however, they find that the tapes are more than just home movies.

The Ghost Dimension is the sixth (and reputedly the final) film in the Paranormal Activity franchise, preceded by Paranormal Activity (2007), Paranormal Activity 2 (2010), Paranormal Activity 3 (2011), Paranormal Activity 4 (2012), and Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014). The story and screenplay was written by numerous American and Canadian screenwriters, including Jason Pagan, Andrew Deutschman, Adam Robitel, Gavin Heffernan, and Brantley Aufill.

The film starts in Santa Rosa, CA in 1988 depicting the events at the end of the third film, when Katie and Kristi's stepfather Dennis (Christopher Nicholas Smith) is killed. It then jumps to Santa Rosa in 2013, depicting events in the Fleege home just before Christmas.

Katie and Kristi's house burned down in 1992, and their bodies were never recovered. The house in which the Fleeges now live was built over the burned-down house.

Ryan finds Leila chanting 'ydoolb yram' in front of a mirror. Mike plays it back and realizes that she is saying 'Bloody Mary'. Bloody Mary is a folklore legend in which a person stands in front of a mirror, says 'Bloody Mary' three times, and an apparition (witch, corpse, ghost, phantom, spirit) is supposed to appear telling the invoker whom s/he was supposed to marry.

It depends on how you view the millenium. If you take the counting system of the Gregorian calendar (the calendar in popular use worldwide), the millenium begins with the year ending in '1', based on the idea that Christ was born in the year 0, so the first year after His birth would be the year ending in *!, and the years ending in *1, *2, *3, *4, *5, *6 are the first six years of a millenium. By the Gregorian calendar, Leila would have to be born on 6/6/2006 for her birthdate to equal 6/6/6. However, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) uses the astronomical calendar, which sets the first year of the millenium at '0', so the years ending in *0, *1, *2, *3, *4, *5 are the first six years of a millenium. This movie has, apparently, used the ISO standard, making the date 6/6/2005 equal to 6/6/6. More information about the dating of a millenium can be found here and here.

When the extermination ritual fails to abolish Toby, Leila runs to her bedroom. Ryan and Emily chase after her, but Ryan is killed when Toby punches his arm through Ryan's chest. Emily follows Leila through a large hole that has opened above the bed, ending up in the basement of Katie and Kristie's old house, where she comes face-to-face with them. Katie tells Emily that it's too late because Toby has become real now. Emily finds Leila who proudly says that they only needed a drop of her blood. Toby suddenly appears and breaks Emily's neck as she attempts to shield her daughter. In the final scene, Toby slings Emily's body at the camera, and Toby and Leila's feet can be seen walking away together.
