Just two months after the franchise’s tenth anniversary, Paramount has announced the release date for the next Paranormal Activity movie, which will once again be produced by Blumhouse. A dormant series since 2015, the studio announced today that the seventh film will arrive on March 19th, 2021. No further details regarding the project are available at this time.
With a meager budget of just $15,000, Paranormal Activity revitalized the found-footage genre in 2009 and became a hit, raking in over $193 million in box office sales. Thanks to the success of the film, numerous sequels have since been released, the most recent of which was the 3D Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension back in 2015.
The six films have done remarkably well, grossing over $890 million worldwide and is a favorite among horror fans this decade. The films are primarily seen through the eyes of surveillance cameras as families are haunted by evil spirits, which includes possession, things moving on their own, and other frightening and unexplained occurrences.
Stay tuned for more details on the next Paranormal Activity movie as they become available.
