Apparently theatergoers are quite comfortable on the edge of their seats. That explains not only the box office success of "Paranormal Activity 2" but also the recent announcement that there will be a "Paranormal Activity 3."
According to Dread Central, Paramount Pictures has confirmed that a third installment of the spooky supernatural story is in the works and should be ready to frighten fans on October 21, 2011.
The decision to extend the "Paranormal" franchise comes as a no-brainer for Paramount. "Paranormal Activity 2," released in October, has taken in over $150 million worldwide and received mostly favorable reviews, while the first "Paranormal Activity" film, released in 2007, earned $183 million and a cult following.
Considering the success of those two flicks, it seems the third movie has more than a ghost of a chance of being a huge hit.
