Paranormal Activity 5

The Paranormal Activity franchise has been around for a few years now with each Halloween holiday getting a new movie, excluding last year when we got a later spinoff – Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. The announcement of Paranormal Activity 5 last year was of no real surprise to anyone considering how well the previous paranormal horror movies have done. Paranormal Activity 1 through to Paranormal 5-ish (The Marked Ones) has generated a crazy $800,000,000+ in revenue! Now considering the first Paranormal Activity movie was written and filmed on a $15,000 its not done too badly. The actual budget for the full series was less than $20,000,000, thats is one hell of a profit for 5 movies.

So no wonder there is going to be a Paranormal Activity 5, although its actually the 6th movie in the franchise!

Paranormal Activity 5 Plot

The first real plot details have been released for Paranormal Activity 5, which is to be released October 24th 2014. This time round the story will center around a young family, Ryan and Emily with their daughter Leila and there is also Ryan’s brother Mike. They have just moved to Palo Alto and Ryan is due to start a new job at a games developer (Rockstar, I am lead to believe?!). The family suffered a loss of a young child 1 year previous to the movie, so no guesses on that being a BIG part of the story.

Paranormal Activity 5 will also be closely connected to the ending of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones according to Christopher Landon, the directory of The Marked Ones.
