Paranormal Activity / Friday the 13th

If you've been anxiously awaiting some new/old horror from Paramount Pictures, you'll be waiting a little bit longer. Today the studio shifted around some release dates for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and the gestating reboot of Friday the 13th. The sixth film in the found footage horror franchise was slated to arrive in March, but now it's been pushed back into Halloween territory on October 23rd this fall. As for Friday the 13th, the movie will now miss this year's 35th anniversary since it's been pushed to May 13th, 2016. Thankfully that's also Friday the 13th, so it won't lose the novelty release date.

In addition, Variety reports Paramount has also given a November 13th release date for the franchise reboot Rings. That's pretty fast considering they just announced that Italian actress Matilda Lutz will star in the new chapter of the horror franchise that launched back in 2002. None of the original characters are back, but the infamous videotape and the spooky Samara will be around again. As for the shifted horror titles from Paramount, we still don't have any plot details on those projects, though you can bet unseen spirits and a hockey-mask killer will be the driving force in each of them.

    Friday the 13th is getting another reboot? I thought it was going to be a sequel to their reboot? Man, Hollywood is turning into the wrestling.

    I'll always look forward to a new Friday the 13th. The 2009 films was super fun

    Last I heard Friday was going to be found footage... so I guess I don't care when it comes out. I like the later style Original Jason with that unexplained supernatural unkillable quality, not the "just some guy" in the woods.
