Truly Frightening: Paramount Dates Two 'Paranormal Activity' Movies For Release In 2014

Sometimes you get the feeling that movie studios just kinda hate you. This summer audiences have already been fed and rejected two unnecessary sequels ("Red 2" and "The Smurfs 2") with both pictures underperforming severely compared to their first efforts. But somehow, the "Paranormal Activity" franchise has remained a consistent box office stunner, partially because they are made for nothing and pretty much instantly become profitable, and partially because audiences seem to really like jump scares. But are we going to get our limits tested in 2014?

Sometimes you get the feeling that movie studios just kinda hate you. This summer audiences have already been fed and rejected two unnecessary sequels ("Red 2" and "The Smurfs 2") with both pictures underperforming severely compared to their first efforts. But somehow, the "Paranormal Activity" franchise has remained a consistent box office stunner, partially because they are made for nothing and pretty much instantly become profitable, and partially because audiences seem to really like jump scares. But are we going to get our limits tested in 2014?

According to Shock 'Til You Drop, there are actually two "Paranormal Activity" movies coming next year. The first is "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones," the Latino themed franchise spinoff you probably already forgot about. That flick comes from series producers Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Christopher Landon, with the movie apparently a Latino-flavored horror movie (whatever that means), that will be in English. So, same recipe, Latino cast? Guess we'll find out. Meanwhile, the proper franchise sequel "Paranormal Activity 5" — recently bumped from the 2013 calendar — will drop into theaters next October. In short, in the span of 10 months there will be two "Paranormal Activity" movies. God help us.

'Marked Ones' arrives on January 3, 2014 and 'PA 5' arrives on October 24, 2014. If you go see these, they're not gonna stop.
