Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman

After making their debut with the chilling and strangely haunting documentary Catfish, directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman moved into the realm of found footage horror by taking on Paranormal Activity 3, the second sequel in the box office giant series. The duo dove even deeper into the mythology of the series in the form of another prequel that really changed the game for the franchise. Just recently we learned Paramount was planning to release Paranormal Activity 4, sometime in 2012, specifically October 19th, and now Bloody Disgusting reports Joost and Schulman are back to direct this sequel too.

The question is, where will the franchise go now? From here on out, beware of spoilers, because the third film really gave us a lot of history behind the mischievous and spiteful demon we've come to know as Toby. However, will the next film show us how Katie and Kristi's grandmother turned to the coven of witches that scared the hell out of people last October, or could we possible head into the future for a real sequel this time? Either way, I'm not entirely sure where the story can head this time. It's getting a little harder to believe that this whole story has been documented on video tape, but the chills and thrills keep coming and each film surprises me with some pretty shocking revelations and paranormal tricks, so count me interested to see where Joost and Schulman take things.

These movies are ridiculous and should have ended at the conceptual stage. I'm sorry if I come off as an ass-hole but the caliber of acting and the see through story lines just don't hold up on the screen, knowing that the events are fiction and that they are trying to pass them off as real events doesn't translate well.

PA3 was alright. So I think this cashgrab is a good thing, as long as the finished product is another pretty good movie.

Love em all. Keep em coming. I am F*%KING SOOOOOOOOO SICK OF Torture porn, stylized haunted house high budget hollywood flicks. I prefer these over anything since the first Descent and first SAW.
