The boys and ghouls over at Dread Central put on their Sherlock Holmes hats and did some digging into the world of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4, which just hit theaters today (technically, last night), and came up with some intriguing, if mysterious, viral goods.

In their internet travels they encountered one Jacob DeGloshi, who on the surface is just some random dude, but dig a little deeper and it starts to become clear he might have a tenuously connection to the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY universe. Jacob has Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages, and a little scan of them will give PA fans one or two items to chew over. Perhaps most tellingly, the photo you see above, which is of his daughter, Sarah, and "one of her friends." The other girl is clearly Kathryn Newton, who plays Alex in PARANORMAL 4.

If it still seems too vague, check out his most recent Tweet: Still unpacking. Found a VHS Tape in Sarah's suitcase. Pretty weird, she doesn't know where it came from.

Could be something, could be nothing. Take a look at Jacob's YouTube videos below and see if you can discover any further evidence that this dude is somehow linked to the PA films. The Dread peeps seem to think the pool and house are familiar...

Are Jacob and Sarah the next leads in the PARANORMAL franchise? If they are you have to hand it to Paramount for getting the viral ball rolling early on PA5, Weigh in with your opinion below, while we keep an eye on Jacob's social media for further evidence.

Extra Tidbit: What's your take? You seeing a clear connection between PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and this Jacob fellow?

People are very willing to watch and believe some reality TV or YouTube clips that are actually staged. These sneaky PA videos would fall within a similar aesthetic/tactic.
Also, as the above article mentions, the younger characters would be new characters in the PA franchise, and they would have a new story. And, they might appeal more to a PA's target younger demographic ((who stereotypically film everything like the PA characters do and who theoretically have more mild tastes in horror such as a movie that "shocks" with its self-animate pool cleaners and non-PC, naughty language (see, the pool cleaners don't act like the vacuums in Rugfuckers from Mars, or whatever that film was)).

interesting

My guess is that are getting an early start on PA5 since, obviously, the short production time on PA4 really hurt and I'm sure they know it. If you are going to do a yearly series they need to develop 2 or 3 at once so when they start filming they have a completely fleshed out story and time to edit the footage properly. I still like PA4 but it was definitely weak from it's short production and development time.
