Paranormal Activity

With "Paranormal Activity 4" being cranked out for release later this year, and the franchise showing no signs of slowing down as for some reason audiences seem to love being jump-scared to death, it's no surprise that the team behind it are looking for new avenues to keep milking for found footage cash.

THR reports that producers Jason Blum and Oren Peli and writer Christopher Landon (who penned the second and third movies of the 'Paranormal' series as well as "Disturbia") are teaming up for a microbudget, Latino flavored "Paranormal Activity." So how will it cater to this market? Apparently, the film feature a Latino cast, be "Latino-themed" (whatever that means) and center around some kind of Catholic based mythology, but bizzarely, the movie won't be in Spanish. Why they are still going with an English language movie that is apparently being geared to the Latino market is beyond us, but maybe they know what they are doing.

And just like every other movie in this franchise, this is being a done on the cheap. This "cousin" to the series (it won't be a spinoff or sequel), will be a cheapie production that might be readied in time for January 2013 release. So in other words, with "Paranormal Activity 4" landing on October 19th, it will just be a matter months before another serving of shaky cam scares is served up into theaters.
