* In ''The Marked Ones'', there are newspaper articles from ''all over the world'' detailing mysterious disappearances and deaths linked with the coven. This coven must be ''huge''.




to:

* During the family's research in ''The Ghost Dimension'', they come across a passage that details the coven's plan to [[spoiler: give corporeal form to the seven lords of Hell, of which Toby is one. There are six other demons out there that the coven is very likely going to attempt to bring to Earth in the near future.]]



* The moment of switching protagonists in ''The Marked Ones''. Jesse brings his camera down into a haunted area. He gets attacked, and drops the camera. Then we cut to the others, and Jesse's possessed. So...how did the camera get back? (Of course, one could apply this to FoundFootage horror films, period: "How did we get this footage?" But this is a question of how the ''characters'' got the camera back....)

*** If the movie is any indication, one theory could be that the demon is amassing some kind of possessed army to take over or bring about the end. Which makes the simplistic nature of the franchise itself even more disturbing. ''The Marked Ones'' pretty much confirms this.

* In the third film, Julie still doesn't believe her family's claims about Toby and refuses to let them go to Lois' house. Toby then takes the opportunity to finally make Julie a believer by levitating the contents of the kitchen and then bringing them crashing down in front of her. Why does it do this? Because it ''wants'' the family to leave and seek refuge at Lois' - after all, they have no way of knowing that this curse will follow them, and [[spoiler:Lois is a witch and has plans to help give Toby what he wants.]]



* It didn't hit me until a few days after I watched The Marked Ones, but you remember that both Oscar and Jesse are both [[spoiler: adopted, like Wyatt, albeit first borns]], right? They might not be the exact same situation, but this means that it's widespread enough that there's ''a standard procedure'' with this sort of thing.

to:

* In ''Ghost Dimension'' the Priest says that [[spoiler: if they leave the house, Toby would likely follow them.]] The ending indicates that he was probably wrong. [[spoiler: Toby was trying to teleport their daughter back in time within that house, moving to another place would, at minimum, have made this more difficult.]]

* The cult leaving the tapes of Kristi and Katie's childhood on the house of the family in ''Ghost Dimension'' along with a special camera that allows them to actually see the demon seems to make no sense at first. But as the movie progresses it becomes apparent that [[spoiler: by providing them the with the means to confirm the demon's existence far easier and sooner than previous protagonists in the series, they make sure that the family devotes its full attention to the demon and become terrified of it... two things that will make it stronger a lot faster that in the previous movies]].

* The true Fridge Horror of this series comes when you realize that everything you see that seems scary (doors opening, demon footprints, etc.) only occur because the demons wants them to be seen. Does he need to open a door to move into a room? No, but he feeds on the negative energy of fear. Hell, it could even be influencing these people to film it just so it could scare them even more.

* In the third movie, there's an unusually high number of detailed books on the occult available to the characters. Which actually makes sense given [[spoiler:a coven of witches have been operating nearby for a demon that feeds on fear]]. Some books were no doubt picked up from Estate sales and/or kids donating Grandma's effects after she died. Others were probably seeded by [[spoiler:the coven]] to increase awareness of the demon and thus feed it through fear.
