Next Paranormal Activity film will end series

The Paranormal Activity franchise may be drawing to a close, with producer Jason Blum telling USA Today that Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension will be the final instalment in the long-running series…

"It’s coming to an end," says Blum. "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."

Whether or not this will really and truly be the last episode remains to be seen, but it sounds as though the franchise will be taking a break at the very least. Directed by Gregory Plotkin and co-starring Nathan Brewer and Jay Hieron, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension will open in the US on 23 October 2015 and the UK one week later.
