Paranormal Activity was the first horror film to hit theaters in 2009. It spawned a franchise and revived the genre of found footage. It got...not great, hence the reboot Next of Kin. Paramounts also released a documentary on the making of the series, which was available to all those who were invested in the films.
Unknown Dimension: Paranormal Activity includes interviews with cast members and crew from the six first films. They talk about their movies as well as the rise of the series. This documentary is the result of an indiegogo campaign that was successful from 2019. It will be particularly important for long-time fans. Unknown Dimension is the first behind-the scenes look at the franchise. It has never offered such an insight in their DVD releases.
Unknown Dimension will be the first time cast and crew from six films meet, according to the documentary's main page. Joe Bandelli is most well-known for his Hell House franchise and Cabin Fear horror mystery. Nate Ragonen and Anthony Masi are familiar with documentaries about horror franchises such as Scream, Hellraiser, Halloween, and Scream. Rachel Belofsky, a co-producer, created Screamfest horror film festival, where the original Paranormal Activity premiered in 2007.
The Unknown crew also managed to capture never-before-seen footage of Oren Peli, Paranormal's original director. This footage he kept secret for many years. We have included quite a bit of it, as promised by the indiegogo site. You will also find deleted and alternate footage, which is likely to have been kept from the DVDs of the first six films. They were also able talk to Next of Kin cast and crew, which was a great thing.
Paramount+ now has Unknown Dimension: The Story of Paranormal Activity.
