The seventh installment of Blumhouse’s hit horror film franchise Paranormal Activity is set for a Halloween premiere on Friday, October 29, on streaming platform Paramount+.

According to a Deadline report, Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin stars franchise newcomers Emily Bader, Roland Buck III, Dan Lippert, and Henry Ayers-Brown.

The found-footage supernatural horror film is directed by William Eubank (Underwater, The Signal) and is written by Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, Freaky). It is produced by Oren Peli (the first film’s director), Landon, Steven Schneider, Jenny Hinkey, and Paramount Players.

The first Paranormal Activity film debuted in 2007 as an independent feature by Peli at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival. Paramount Pictures later acquired the film and edited it with Jason Blum and became a box office hit, earning over $193 million globally. Its success spawned six sequels and prequels from 2010 to 2015. – Rappler.com
