Paranormal Activity

Paramount have set the date for a third entry in their phenomenally successful Paranormal Activity franchise.

Fans of both the original and this year’s megabuck-earning sequel won’t have to wait long – in the grand tradition of quickie horror sequels (see Nightmare On Elm Street, Saw et al), Paranormal Activity 3 will hit screens a year after its predecessor on 21 October, 2011.

Naturally no details beyond that have been released, but don’t expect Paramount to mess with the formula that has so far earned them a bucket-load of cash (over $300m combined).

So: found-footage visuals, ghostly presences and a house under supernatural attack should all still be on the menu.
