After the success of Paranormal Activity, movie theaters were fludded with "Found Footage" movies - several sequels and spin-offs of Paranormal Activity were released as well. With Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the series officially ends. And it does not just end, it ends in 3D. Even though the break even point could be reached easily, this last chapter was not as successful as previous installments. On Blu-ray, the obligatory Unrated Version has been released. It is appox. 9 minutes longer than the Theatrical Version, a few more plot scenes have been added. Most of the new footage is rather unspectacular though. Kind of like the actual movie which is not as good as previus installments.
Compared are the Theatrical Version and the Extended Cut, both released by Paramount Home Entertainment.
There are 8 differences with a total length difference of 557.56 seconds (~ 9:18 minutes).
