Paranormal Activity 5: The Ghost Dimension will be released in 3D.
Gregory Plotkin's horror sequel will be released in cinemas on March 13, 2015.
The Ghost Dimension will focus on a new family being haunted by a supernatural entity, with the plot expected to tie in to recent spin-off The Marked Ones.
Bloody Disgusting has suggested that the use of 3D will be used to differentiate between dimensions.
Earlier this year, the makers of Paranormal Activity revealed that they have a conclusion planned for the series.
"It was really when we were making the third film that things started to crystallise," Christopher Landon said.
"I had an endgame in mind which I had pitched to the group and they loved it. We've been working toward getting to this finish line. »
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is going where no other Paranormal Activity movie has gone before: Into the Third Dimension. Yes, it has been confirmed that Paramount Pictures is planning to release the fifth chapter in their popular horror franchise in 3D. This will be the first Paranormal Activity movie released in 3D. It also holds the distinction of being one of the first found footage movies shot in the immersive format.
Can a Paranormal Activity IMAX release be far behind? We're not sure at this point, but Bloody Disgusting confirms that when Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension hits theaters this March, we will be required to wear those cumbersome glasses. This may sound odd, as the found footage genre doesn't necessarily seem like a good fit for 3D. But it is being speculated that the 3D is being brought in specifically for use in the The Ghost Dimension. The »
Some pre-holiday news has come our way from Bloody Disgusting, who’s reporting that the next entry into the Paranormal Activity franchise, Paranormal Activity 5: The Ghost Dimension, will arrive in post-converted 3D. The site also reports that the film has… Continue Reading →

Netflix streaming is upping the ante this December, adding enough high-profile TV shows and movies to more than make up for last month's lackluster offerings.
On the movie side, highlights include Will Ferrell and gang in "Anchorman 2," the Heath Ledger-starring "A Knight's Tale," Cameron Crowe classic "Almost Famous," Oscar-winning "American Beauty," and horror hits "Oculus" and "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." Oh, and let's not forget '80s classic "Troop Beverly Hills," '90s cult favorite "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion," or Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
And there's plenty to love about what's coming on the TV front: "American Horror Story: Coven" finally gets its day on Netflix, "Sharknado 2" storms its way to streaming, and Brit hit "Broadchurch" finally lands stateside. Oh, and December sees the premiere of the hotly anticipated Netflix Original series "Marco Polo" on the 12th.

The Game Show Network is expanding its lineup for 2015. Gsn has ordered a second season of original series “Idiotest”, and has ordered numerous new projects, including horror-themed game show “Hellevator” from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Prods.
“Hellevator” features contestants entering a warehouse via an ominous-looking elevator, where they compete in a series of scary, suspenseful and emotionally taxing challenges. Only survivors make it out as winners. Series is produced by Matador and Blumhouse Prods., known for the “Paranormal Activity” feature franchise, in association with Lionsgate Television. Matador’s Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin will executive produce.
“Gsn has taken some big swings in development over the past year, pushing our brand into exciting new areas while still maintaining our leadership position in the traditional game show genre,” said David Schiff, senior VP of programming and development at Gsn. “That push is paying off, both in the diversity of projects that we’re working on, »

Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley has revealed that the shared universe of movie monster they recently announced will be “more in the action-adventure genre” to cash in on the popularity of the super hero film craze. Is this an unwise strategy? Is it advisable to turn horror films into action movies? Will this work or will this decision sink the shared universe before it starts?
Superhero action films are certainly the popular trend in recent years. Marvel and Disney, in particular, have made piles of cash bigger than the one the Joker had in the Dark Knight off their comic book adventure films. It’s not surprising that other studios want to cash in on the current wave. But what does seem unusual is that Universal wants to use action to gain an audience for their planned series of horror movies, featuring the classic Universal Studios monsters.

Call it "Paranormal Activity part 7"... except this one really is based on "real-life" events. Earlier this year, Relativity announced that it was developing a film inspired by the story of Gary, Indiana-based Latoya Ammons who, in 2011, claimed that her children were being attacked and possessed by demons. The mother of 3 told police that she witnessed her children walking up walls, levitating and speaking in different voices. She further claimed that she once found her seven-year-old son inside a closet talking to another boy only he could see. When she asked what they were talking about, Ammons claimed that he told her the unseen presence »

Remember that Timur Bekmambetov-created and produced thriller that goes down in real-time from the point-of-view of a teen’s computer? It’s got a new title. Universal just announced that it’s doing away with Cybernatural and running with a more familiar term instead, Unfriended. There’s something cheeky about it, but there’s also no doubt that some will have a tough time taking the new title seriously. In addition to the title change, Unfriended will not hit theaters on April 17, 2015 as previously announced and will arrive on April 10th instead. On top of that, Universal also revealed that one of its upcoming Blumhouse releases is M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit. That one will arrive in theaters on September 11, 2015. Hit the jump for more on both films. Here’s the official synopsis for Unfriended: Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal Pictures’ Unfriended unfolds over a »

Back in the spring, you might remember hearing a bit about M. Night Shyamlan's next project, which at the time was called Sundowning. However, since then, the filmmaker has been quietly working on the project with no indication of when we might finally see the movie. But that changes today as Universal Pictures has announced that they will release the film, now titled The Visit, next fall on September 11th, 2015. The film was originally named as "Untitled Blumhouse Horror 1" and slated for September 25th, but the project produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Conjuring) will arrive two weeks earlier. The Visit is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan and tells the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see »

The story centers on a brother and sister sent for a week to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm, where they discover that the grandparents are involved something deeply disturbing.
The film has already been shot with cast members under wraps.
“The Visit” is the first Shyamalan film to be released by Universal. The filmmaker saw his greatest successes at Disney with “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable” and “Signs.” Sony released his “After Earth” last year and saw moderate returns with $240 million worldwide on a $130 million budget.
News about “The Visit” was first reported by Deadline.com.

After his blockbuster success with The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, it seemed studios were more than willing to furnish M. Night Shyamalan with unlimited resources to try and scare up more twist endings at the box office. But, after Signs each film was met with diminishing returns culminating in the debacle that was The Last Airbender. But, it looks like after working on the Fox series Wayward Pines, Shyalaman may be poised for a comeback. Partnering with Paranormal Activity producer Jason »

The slasher movie, if we'll admit it to ourselves, is about our fears of teen sexuality. Whether you're a teen made nervous by your own hormones or a parent afraid of what trouble those hormones will get your kid into, the slasher-movie villain is your fears made flesh. But with the release 30 years ago this week (November 9, 1984) of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the slasher film entered a new dimension.
With the creation of Freddy Krueger (played indelibly by Robert Englund), who could kill teens in their dreams, the slasher villain proved there was no place that was safe, not even the subconscious.
In retrospect, the genre may have peaked with the release of this film; after all, how many other slasher villains since have been anywhere near as memorable? Unlike his predecessors, Jason Voorhees (of the "Friday the 13th" movies) and Michael Myers (of the "Halloween »

It’s the second Blumhouse project to land at Relativity, which bought “Oculus” at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and saw it become the highest grossing movie out of Toronto since 2010, with $40.6 million worldwide.
“Lazarus” follows a group of medical students who discover a way to bring dead patients back to life. David Gelb (“Jiro Dreams of Sushi”) directed the film from a script by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater.

“Whiplash” is a box office tortoise, not a hare.
The story of a promising young jazz drummer (Miles Teller) and his demanding mentor (J.K. Simmons) has earned some of the year’s best reviews and will likely factor into awards season races. But it lacks big name stars and an easily digestible premise, so distributor Sony Pictures Classics is plotting a slow expansion for the low-budget drama.
“We take our time,” said Michael Barker, Sony Pictures Classics co-president and co-founder. “These pictures tend to have great word-of-mouth. We release them like an accordion, where we go wider and wider, before eventually we contract a little.”
It’s a formula that Sony Pictures Classics previously applied to such Oscar contenders as “An Education” and “Capote.” In the case of “Whiplash,” it has meant opening the film in a half dozen theaters and slowly expanding it to just 61 locations over the course »

Not to be confused with “Annabelle” (although that could only help commercially), “Jessabelle” serves up a murky and underwhelming cauldron of Southern-fried voodoo-horror claptrap. Scaling down a notch into PG-13 territory after two back-to-back “Saw” sequels, director Kevin Greutert manages some nicely drawn-out tension in isolated sequences, but novel twists and effective scares prove few and far between in this ludicrous bayou gothic about a wheelchair-bound young woman excavating a series of unusually dark family secrets. Although Lionsgate’s campaign is touting the involvement of producer Jason Blum (of the “Paranormal Activity,” “Sinister,” “Insidious” and “The Purge” movies), audience prospects look just middling, and franchising opportunities hopefully moot, for this post-Halloween theatrical and VOD release.
It takes barely five minutes for red-headed twentysomething Jessabelle, aka Jessie (Australian actress Sarah Snook), to lose her b.f. (Brian Hallisay) and their unborn child in a horrific car accident. Two months later, significantly »

With weekend actuals reporting, Ouija narrowly held on to first place ahead of Nightcrawler over Halloween weekend. Meanwhile, Before I Go To Sleep and the Saw 10th anniversary re-release each bombed.The Top 12 earned just shy of $80 million, which makes this one of the slowest weekends of the year. That can partly be attributed to the "Halloween effect": moviegoers were preoccupied with other activities on Friday, which set the weekend back quite a bit. This is a chicken-and-egg sort of thing, though: fearing this Halloween effect, the big studios avoided the date entirely. Had someone stepped up to the plate with a broadly appealing offering, the aggregate box office wouldn't be nearly as low.Sunday estimates had Nightcrawler and Ouija tied with $10.9 million. Open Road Films had Nightcrawler earning $9,000 more than Ouija, though other sources suggested Ouija came out on top. When actuals reported on Monday actuals, Ouija had »
