Emily organizes a camera crew to document her first experiences with blood relatives, and the production unfortunately doesn’t go as planned. Musically, the found footage film mostly includes background music during its 98-minute runtime; however, the flick does include a couple needledrops that viewers may be curious about.

  • “Wonder (PVRIS Remix)” by Morgxn (00:07:00): Margot and company arrive in upstate New York. The Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin soundtrack music scores a driving sequence. Margot shoots video as she makes her way to Buffalo; the moment aligns with the lyric “When the question’s way too hard to understand.”
  • “Hello Darlin'” by Loretta Lynn (01:32:00): Samuel leaves his family home after killing two police officers. Based on the wild climactic events, the character is seemingly possessed by a demonic spirit known as Ashmodeus. Samuel drives down a country road as the music plays after a radio dispatch call.
