Paranormal Activity 5 has been given a new release date – setting it back until next year.

The supernatural horror movie will now hit the silver screen on 13 March (a Friday, of course) in the US, according to The Wrap.

And its new title has been confirmed as Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.

The film, directed by Gregory Plotkin, was originally scheduled for release just ahead of Halloween on 25 October.

All four of the previous Paranormal films opened in either September or October, grossing a total of $812 million worldwide. By contrast, each film cost no more than $5 million to produce.


The fifth instalment is produced by Jason Blum and written by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark.

Created by Oren Peli, the franchise is centred on a family haunted by a demonic entity and is characterised by its use of hand-held recording devices .


Peli has said the films tap into people’s primitive fears about ghosts, including his own.

He told Screen Rant: "I think a lot of what’s in the movie are things that scare me. The fear that there is something happening in my house that’s invisible. In my house where I’m supposed to be safe.

"And you don’t know what it is, you don’t know what realm it came from, you don’t know what it wants from you — or how to protect yourself against it. That’s very scary for me."
