‘Paranormal Activity 7’ Teaser Trailer Looks Nothing Like a ‘Paranormal Activity’ Movie

Paranormal Activity 7, also known as Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, is planning to revive the franchise. The horror movie series has been dormant ever since 2015’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. Blumhouse Productions has moved onto other projects, including David Gordon Green’s Halloween trilogy and the social horror franchise The Purge. They recently gave moviegoers a peek at what to expect from the upcoming Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin.

Blumhouse Productions created a franchise off of hype

The first Paranormal Activity was a huge winner for Blumhouse. It kickstarted their low-budget horror movie model that has the potential for high profits. The film made $193 million worldwide at the box office against a reported $15,000 budget. The marketing campaign behind the movie was ingenious. It didn’t have a wide release. Rather, audiences had to demand it to be screened at their local cinema online.
