Paranormal Entity is a 2009 horror film that follows in the footsteps of the hugely successful docu-horror film Paranormal Activity, starring Erin Marie Hogan, Shane Van Dyke, and Fia Perera in a story about a family who unwittingly let an ancient supernatural being into their home, an evil spirit who begins sexually terrorizing the pretty, young daughter. Hogan plays Samantha Finley, who along with her older brother Thomas (Van Dyke) and their mother Ellen (Perera), attempts to channel the ghost of her dead father. Ellen has never recovered from the untimely death of her husband that left her a single mother, and she encourages the family to make contact with him in the afterlife. After several attempts, the family believes they've been successful. However, when something begins attacking Samantha and brutally abusing her, they realize the spirit they summoned isn't her loving father at all. Paranormal Entity is a scary thrill ride, written, directed, and produced by Shane Van Dyke.
