There was a little confusion last month when Paramount announced that 'Paranormal Activity 5' would be pushed back to 2014, while a new 'Paranormal Activity' spin-off film would hit theaters in January. Now we've gotten a little more clarification with the announcement of official release dates for both films -- that's right, two 'Paranormal Activity' films in the same year.
Paranormal Activity 5
The 'Paranormal Activity' films have owned October for the last four years running, but it seems that Paramount might be ready to switch things up and relinquish the October box office to someone else this year. Word is, the studio is thinking of pushing 'Paranormal Activity 5' back to 2014.
Yes, the summer blockbuster season is just getting started, but let's not forget another beloved genre: horror. Horror fans have just as much to look forward to as fans of geek properties in 2013. We've got a list of our most anticipated horror films for the rest of the year -- films promising spooks and scares, blood and gore, and all manner of things that get under our skin
It’s hard to imagine that Katie Featherstone has been scaring us silly since 2007, but the actress has been the one mainstay in every single 'Paranormal Activity' film since the very beginning. In the latest film, 'Paranormal Activity 4' (on Blu-ray and DVD January 29), Featherstone’s screen time is significantly smaller, but the importance and weight of her role is perhaps bigger than ever.
We recently sat down with the actress to discuss the 'Paranormal Activity' series, her dance moves, and how much she misses 'The River.'
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.'
It was no secret that the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise would probably add a fifth movie to its roster, and this direction seemed all the more forthcoming after the fourth film's recent box office success opening weekend. Now the news is official -- we can expect another installment. But that's not all.
'Paranormal Activity 5' is happening - that much we know. The 'Paranormal Activity' franchise is a huge hit at Halloween and with the latest sequel 'Paranormal Activity 4' now in theaters (and likely to do big business), the found footage action has returned.
Though the story expands to add seemingly unrelated characters, it once again fails to fill in all the gaps of our understanding how the 'Paranormal' films all fits together. So how can next year's 'Paranormal Activity 5' answer our questions about this mysterious and frightening world?
