Paranormal Activity 5 Gets Delayed…Again

Submitted by on September 18, 2014 – 7:16 pmNo Comment

It’s been almost two years since the last Paranormal Activity film that followed in the original film’s timeline (No, we won’t count January’s “The Marked Ones” spinoff). The fifth installment was originally scheduled to hit theaters last October but was pushed to this year’s Halloween season. However, that won’t happen and it was announced that Paranormal Activity 5, now dubbed “The Ghost Dimension,” will be released on March 23, 2015.

Why the two year hiatus?

No real reason was given, according to The Wrap.

“They really like the director, but they are second guessing themselves,” the source said.

Perhaps they are looking to the first quarter success of other horror films. Or, maybe the sting from “The Marked Ones” performing poorly at the box office has caused the studio to reconsider how they approach the fifth film.

Gregory Plotkin is directing for the first time. Writer-producer Christopher Landon, who’s been with the horror franchise since Paranormal Activity 2, discussed the series’ future in a recent interview with IGN and voiced his displeasure with the direction of the fourth film.

“Four was a tricky one… I think there are some fun moments and great scares and we got some stuff right, but where we really dropped the ball is we didn’t advance the mythology and left the audience in a narrative wasteland,” Landon said.

We’ll see if they get it figured out for the 5th film.
