'Paranormal Activity 5' gets new name, release date


The latest installment in the Paranormal Activity franchise is getting a spookier name, but a less spooky release date. The movie, now titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, is moving from Oct. 25, 2014 to March 13, 2015, EW has confirmed. So, while it won’t be in theaters to frighten audiences this Halloween, it could prove a frightening alternative to, say, Disney’s live-action Cinderella. The shift means that Paramount is bumping its Scouts vs. Zombies from that March date to Feb. 20, 2015. Scouts vs. Zombies is about—what else?—boy scouts fighting zombies.

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension was originally titled Paranormal Activity 5, though it marks the sixth film in the franchise, including last year’s spinoff of sorts, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.
