10.19.12 by Ryan
There was a time when October was the time for the perennial entry in the Saw series, but now a new entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise is as common as the autumn leaves changing color. Already on to their fourth installment, Paranormal Activity 4 will open this week, offering a new look at that tricky demon haunting people while they sleep. The franchise started out with San Diego couple Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) discovering that a malicious spirit had invaded their condo, which then went on to torment Katie's sister Kristi (Sprague Grayden) and her family in Paranormal Activity 2. The franchise went back in time to 1988 for Paranormal Activity 3, which saw a young Katie and Kristi's first experience with the Demon, and was the most successful entry in the series, earning $205 million worldwide. It's doubtful that Paranormal Activity 4 will be the final installment in the franchise, so why not catch up with the series with the latest clip, which covers the events of the previous three movies. Even if you have seen all the Paranormal Activity movies, it's worth a refresher.
Paranormal Activity 3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman return for Paranormal Activity 4, which stars Kathryn Newton as Nevada teen Alice, who becomes suspicious of her new neighbors, who may or may not be Katie and her nephew Hunter.
