Paranormal Activity 4 is on its way

For those of you who may have missed it, or didn't guess it, Paranormal Activity has another sequel in the works, due for release in October.

As reported here by Bloody Disgusting, PA3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will be returning after their film was a big step up over the turd called Paranormal Activity 2 (come on, a floating fuckin' baby? Is that supposed to scare me?). No other news is forthcoming yet, other than no script is yet known, so it may be quite a quick production, then again, these films don't need as much of a spit and polish as the every day Hollywood blockbuster. Also unclear is if it will continue the story started in PA3, which was by all regards a prequel, or will is continue on where PA2 left off.

It is hardly surprising Paranormal Activity is spawning so many sequels (five, including this one. Don't forget about the Tokyo sequel). This is this generations Halloween, or A Nightmare on Elm Street, or Friday The 13th. It may end up going as bat shit insane as the Saw franchise did, but hey, it reversed the rule of diminishing returns with the last flick. 

Can it capture that spooky magic again? What do you think?
