3 Comments

The first trailer for Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin has been released. The seventh movie in the hugely successful found-footage horror series will be released on Paramount+ on October 29.

The plot for Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin has been shrouded in secrecy, and this teaser doesn't exactly give much away. It starts with what seems to be a family gathering around the dinner table in an old house where the father welcomes home "our sister Margot."

The trailer then shows the discovery of a dark, spooky tunnel leading deep underground, followed by lots of quickly-cut scary stuff, including a woman being dragged away by something unseen and the family acting very weird. The trailer also suggests that not all the movie will be in the found-footage style of the previous installments--but we'll have to wait until next month to find out exactly what it's all about. Check the trailer out below:

Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin is directed by Will Eubank, who previously made 2020's aquatic monster movie Underwater. It's written by Christopher Landon, who wrote parts 3, 4, and 5, and served as director on both Happy Death Day movies (and writer on the second). As with the other films in the Paranormal Activity franchise, it's produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions.

The movie was originally set for a theatrical release in March 2022 but has been brought forward for a Halloween premiere on Paramount+. Paramount is developing a number of other movies directly for its streaming platform, including a prequel to the 2017 Stephen King adaptation Pet Sematary.
