Latest ‘Paranormal Activity’ Sequel Set for 2021

Found-footage fans rejoice!  As reported by Deadline, the hauntingly successful Paranormal Activity franchise is set for another sequel to be released in 2021, according to studio Paramount.  Blumhouse will once again be producing the film, which will be the seventh cinematic installment in the series.

It will be interesting to see where Blumhouse is going with the popular line of ghost films, as the last movie seemed to wrap up the ongoing story-line rather neatly.  Paranormal Activity has been known to incorporate the latest technological fads throughout its run, including HD security footage, Skype, video game consoles infrared and video conferencing.  The basis of the new version is anyone’s guess; as of right now, there have been no script or formal cast announcements.  Time travel and wormholes are just two concepts that have already been explored by the various writers and directors employed during its run (including original writer-director Oren Peli.)  To date, the six previous Paranormal Activity films have grossed an impressive $890 million worldwide on total budgets of only $28 million.  More Blumhouse horror magic on display. read more
