Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension will premiere in REALD 3D at Screamfest

Horror-fans that attend ScreamFest this year will have a chance to catch the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ “Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension,” the sixth film in the blockbuster horror franchise.

The new installment will premiere in RealD 3D closing night of the Screamfest Horror Film Festival on Thursday, October 22nd at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The screening marks the series’ return to the largest and longest running horror film festival in the U.S., where the first “Paranormal Activity” film made its debut in 2007.

“We are thrilled to have the ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’ premiere close this year’s festival,” said Rachel Belofsky, Screamfest Founder and Festival Director. “We are so proud of Oren Peli and his success with the franchise. It’s great to have him back in the festival where it all began.”

“It’s incredibly exciting, and somewhat surreal, to premiere the final installment of the ‘Paranormal Activity’ series at Screamfest where the first film premiered eight years ago,” said producer Oren Peli, who directed, produced and wrote the original “Paranormal Activity.” “These films continued to be made because of the incredible fans that supported them from the very beginning, so I look forward to bringing the series back to its roots to honor them.”

As a tribute to the original film’s most passionate fans, for the first time ever, Screamfest will expand nationwide with special advance screenings of “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” in the 12 markets in which the first film opened with “Demand It” fan screenings before its theatrical run in 2009. The new film will play in Ann Arbor, MI; Baton Rouge, LA; Boulder, CO; Columbus, OH; Durham, NC; Lincoln, NE; Madison, WI; Orlando, FL; Santa Cruz, CA; Seattle, WA; State College, PA; and Tucson, AZ on October 22nd.
