Paranormal Activity 4 will be made!

Like, duh! When the third installment in the Paranormal Activity series outgrossed the second and made almost as much as the first, it was only a matter of time before Paramount announced a fourth.

And, if you doubt my words, check out the following blurb from a Paramount Pictures press release:

“In 2012, Paramount’s release slate highlights include “World War Z,” a zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” the next installment in the global franchise starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Channing Tatum, a new chapter in the “Paranormal Activity” franchise, and “The Dictator,” starring Sacha Baron Cohen and directed by Larry Charles, the team behind “Borat.”

The question that must now be asked is what will the latest entry be about? Two and three were prequels. Where will the story go from here? Another prequel? An official sequel? Something different altogether? And, most importantly, will Katie Featherstone (pic) be back? Thanks for not including THOSE details in the press release, jerkoffs!!

To be honest, does it really matter? No. Shawn and I have yet to see Paranormal Activity 3. It's supposed to be good. But how much life can there be in this found-footage franchise? I guess we'll learn that answer when the grosses die off.

Until then, check back here for more as the project develops. We anticipate Paranormal Activity 4 will be in theatres for Halloween


  1. There is the question of the child from "Paranormal Activity 2". Maybe the fourth installment will cover the period between the end of the second part and the beginning of the first... and explain what happened to the kid.

    It would be logical, right?

  2. The first and second films take place almost simultaneously. But yes, it would be nice to know what happened to Katie and the baby :)
