More 'Paranormal Activity' movies on the way?

"Paranormal Activity" is slowly becoming a yearly tradition.

The franchise topped the box office in its debut weekend, pulling in $30.2 million with its fourth film, and Deadline Hollywood reports that a fifth movie is in the works. As with the rest, a rumored "Paranormal Activity 5" would arrive just in time for Halloween next year.

But studio Paramount isn't pausing there - according to Deadline, there are also plans to create a spinoff geared toward a Latino audience.

The untitled project would bring in the demon from the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, would be filmed partly in Spanish, and would feature Latino actors. If you saw "Paranormal Activity 4," then you might've spotted a teaser for the film, which is said to have Christopher Landon on board as director and a potential spring 2013 release.

It'll be interesting to see how these reported projects develop, as the franchise as a whole is slowing down. Although no one can sneeze at "Paranormal Activity 4's" opening weekend haul, considering the budget was only $5 million, the movie did earn less than its predecessors.

According to Entertainment Weekly, this year's fourth "PA" film brought in 43 percent less than "Paranormal Activity 3" did when it opened, and 26 percent less than the second film's bow.

Are you interested in seeing another "Paranormal Activity" movie (or two), or do you think this weekend's gross means it's time to let the franchise die?

    For the ultimate Paranormal Activity the producers should film the Republican caucuses and their private meetings in the House of Representatives. Channeling Ronald Reagan and communing with the spirits of Glenn Beck, Limbaugh and the dreams of Todd Akin. Yea, that will be Scary.

    If they're only spending 5mil to make these craptastic movies, they can milk the franchise for years. They could make that back just putting them straight to dvd & dumping them in the Wal Mart $5 bin

      The plot will involve some educated, respectful latinos who hire attorneys, and apply for legal citizenship, paying all applicable fees, and waiting until their visas are approved, after which they learn English and merge into society.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that they're going to make at least 15 more PA movies. Like Jason, Halloween, Freddie, Saw, and so on, they'll continue until they drain every ounce of juice out of the franchise. By PA 15, they'll be moving the furniture around the seniors home after everyone has turned in to sleep ... at 4:00pm.

    PA4 was so bad that the local theater had to put a sign out front (specific to this movie) saying that all ticket sales were final and that they would not be giving refunds to dissatisfied patrons. I'm pretty sure this movie killed the franchise.
