‘Paranormal Activity 5′ Officially Dated for Next Halloween

Paranormal Activity 4
Paramount

When a franchise is done as cheaply as the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films it doesn’t matter if audiences didn’t really care for the latest entry, ‘Paranormal Activity 4.’ What matter is that the films are done for under ten million dollars, and don’t advertise too much. That’s why, for next Halloween, we’re getting ‘Paranormal Activity 5.’

As they haven’t been exactly creative with the titles so far, it’s like to be called just that. The fifth film in the highly profitable and modestly scary ‘Paranormal Activity’ franchise is now dated for October 25, 2013, which confirms what was previously reported, though it’s possible the studio was reticent after the fourth movie made almost half as much as the previous entry. And though the last film didn’t reach the hundred million dollars highs of the third film, ‘Paranormal Activity 4′ was (supposedly) done for five million dollars, which – when it made $53 Million stateside and $136 Million worldwide – means that Paramount made a lot of money off the film.

And with Paramount’s slate of 2013 heavy on films bumped from 2012 (including ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,’ ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ and ‘World War Z‘), setting up a low budget, easy profit movie makes all the sense in the world. Even if the fifth film does half the business of the last one, as long as they keep budgets down it should still make money. And that’s why we’re going to keep getting more of these, even though they have yet to nail down a writer director, cast or anything other than a release date.
