Paramount Plus releases a teaser trailer for Paranormal Activity 7 as the long-running supernatural horror franchise heads to streaming.
Paranormal Activity 7 debuts a creepy new teaser trailer ahead of its debut on Paramount+. The original 2007 found-footage horror film Paranormal Activity famously was made for just $230,000 and went on to gross a massive $193 million.
Box office returns like that are what studios dream of, so it’s no surprise that a Paranormal Activity franchise was quickly launched. That franchise indeed continued to churn out hit movies, with budgets remaining consistently in the $5 million range and grosses easily topping $100 million, with 2011’s Paranormal Activity 3 hitting a high-water mark of $207 million. It wasn’t until 2014’s Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones that grosses fell below $100 million. The last chapter in the franchise, 2017’s Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension, then sagged to a relatively low – but still not terrible – $78.9 million.
