Paranormal Activity 5 Gets a Release Date

By November 26, 2012

Paranormal Activity 4
"Look out! There's a sequel behind you!"

The box office performance for Paranormal Activity 4 -- about $54 million to date domestically -- has been disappointing compared to its predecessors in the series ($30 million less, to be exact), but any film that generates that much money from a $5 million budget has to be deemed a success, so it's not terribly surprising that Paramount has commissioned a fifth entry in the franchise. (Also helping is the fact that it's earned much more overseas than in the US.) And now we have an official -- an unsurprising -- release date: October 25, 2013. The Paranormal Activity franchise has ruled the Halloween season for the past four years -- as the Saw films had done for so long before PA took over -- but given PA 4's recent performance, you have to wonder if 2013 is the year a worthy challenger comes along to swipe the horror crown. (In the case of Saw, though, that didn't happen until the sixth film.)
