Paranormal Activity 5 will end the franchise, plus first images & teaser
There's been speculation that PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION will be the final entry in the profitable horror series, and while speaking with USA Today, producer Jason Blum confirmed the franchise will end with the fifth installment.
It's coming to an end. This is it, the finale. We're saying it before the movie opens. We're not going to grind this horror franchise into the ground. This will keep Paranormal Activity as part of this culture and this particular time in a really fantastic way...All the questions that everyone has asked from the past Paranormal Activity films: What does Toby look like? What's the backstory to the families? These questions have been teased out. Now they will be answered."
Well, that's refreshing to hear. Blum went on to say although it hasn't been discussed, at some point there could be a reboot ("You never know."), but they made PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION "like it's the end of this Paranormal line for sure."
The film will follow "a new family, the Fleeges — father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George) — who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage. When they look through the camera’s lens, they begin to see the paranormal activity happening around them – including the re-emergence of young Kristi and Katie." 3D will be used for the video camera footage parts, which is a first for the franchise.
The first trailer will debut tonight at 11:59 p.m. PDT, but until then we'll have to make do with this trailer teaser, and USA Today has several images from the upcoming film as well, which you can also check out below.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION opens on October 23, 2015.
