After three teasers for this thing we finally have the full trailer for Paranormal Activity 4, which marks the return of Paranormal Activity 3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.
The poster reveal earlier today indicated that the film takes place in November of 2011, which is a far cry from the 1980’s setting of Part 3 (my personal favorite in the series). The film seems to primarily concern a young high school student and a creepy kid next door (Toby made flesh?). Looks pretty good! The “front door open, back door open” bit is well executed.
Joost and Schulman co-directed Catfish independently before it was acquired by Universal. PA 3 has made over $200 million at the box office worldwide, while the entire Paranormal Activity franchise has pulled in approximately $577 worldwide at the box office alone making it a near billion dollar franchise (when you include home video).
Paramount releases PA4 on October 19, 2012. Head inside for the trailer. Not sure if it will top PA3 for me, but who knows?
