Paranormal Activity 7 Has A Release Date

It's been four years since the last film in the series.


Paranormal Activity, the massive film series that spooked audiences between 2007 and 2015, is coming back for more. A release date has been set for a new film in the franchise, which has thus far brought in $890.4 million worldwide despite every film in the series being made on a tiny budget.

Deadline is reporting that the next Paranormal Activity has been set on Paramount's schedule. The film will release on March 21, 2021--the same day as the next Tomb Raider movie, directed by Ben Wheatley.

Few other details are known at this point. The film does not have a director or cast yet, and may not actually be called Paranormal Activity 7--the series dropped numbers from their titles after Paranormal Activity 4. It will be produced by Blumhouse (Get Out, The Purge, Halloween).

The most recent film in the series, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, was a huge critical flop and performed worse than any of its predecessors, but still grossed $78.9 million worldwide on a $10 million budget. Earlier entries in the series, especially the first three films, were well-received by both critics and audiences.

Paranormal Activity seems to be following a similar trajectory to the Saw franchise, which ruled the Halloween box office from 2004-2010 (albeit with diminishing returns), before returning to cinemas with Jigsaw in 2017. The next film in the series, The Organ Donor, was developed by Chris Rock and is due to release on May 15, 2020.

The most recent Paranormal Activity branded experience was a VR game, Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, released for PC and PS4 in 2017.
