It's the desperation move for a franchise perceived to be "in trouble" - and in this case, wholly unnecessary. When last we left the players of Paranormal Activity, head harpy Kate (Katie Feartherston) had become possessed by her sister Kristi's (Sprague Grayden) veiled voodoo nonsense. To return the favor, she visited their home in the wee hours and killed everyone -- except her infant nephew, whom she then removed from his crib and disappeared with. Since the first two films happened more or less simultaneously in the time line, we are ripe to revisit the ending of Part 2 and figure out what happened to our villainess and her tiny hostage.
