PARANORMAL ACTIVITY Gets TWO Sequels in 2014. Say What?
If there was one franchise that you could slap with the title "Cash Grab" Paranormal Activity would be that film. From the get-go, the franchise made it clear it that it was not about creating solid horror films, but creating easy money sources. I put them on the same level as the Scary Movie franchise. If there is any proof of these statements, this would be it:
Paramount Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have announced that they will be releasing not one, but two sequels to the spooky ghost franchise in 2014. This news come after we recently found out that there will be no spooky ghost story this Halloween. What they are going to do is release a Latino spin-off (really?) under the Paranormal name on January 3rd (it was originally titled OT: Oxnard Tapes but they changed the name to Paranormal Activity: Marked Ones) and will be releasing the official sequel, Paranormal Activity 5, on October 24th.
So there you have it, the spookiness resumes, just a year later than expected.
