The film depicts a documentarian making a film about her Amish relatives, trying to explore the life her late mother had living there, in a luddite village apparently stalked by a demon. Like past installments, the film we are seeing is the “documentary” within the story, in the tradition of found footage horror popularized by films like 1999’s The Blair Witch Project. The film looks like a spooky good time, conjuring a tale of crazed villagers holding a dark secret.
The original 2007 Paranormal Activity film was a shoe-string budget success story that helped reinvigorate the found footage genre when it was picked up for wide release into packed theaters back in 2009. The flick spurred six sequels, including the upcoming film.
Dropping on the same day on Paramount Plus is the documentary about the franchise, Unknown Dimension: The Story of Paranormal Activity, offering behind-the-scenes glimpses and never-before-seen footage.
Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, which will be the series’ seventh installment, and the aforementioned documentary will be released on Oct. 29, 2021, exclusively on Paramount Plus.
