Stay After the ‘Paranormal Activity 4’ Credits For a Special Latino-Themed Look at Its Spin-Off

By  · Published on October 8th, 2012

Paranormal Activity 4 hits theaters October 19th, and if you’re already planning on going, then you are really, really dedicated to this franchise. Seriously. You’re sticking it out, and there’s something probably commendable about that. At any rate, you’ll be rewarded with even more Paranormal Activity for going to see the fourth Paranormal Activity. According to Bloody Disgusting, Paramount is planning to toss a post-credits tease for the forthcoming “Latino-themed” spin-off onto the prints.

From writer/director Christopher Landon, the new movie will feature a Latino cast and involve Catholicism, but it will be in English (meaning that the “latino-themed” Actividad Paranormal (my title) will later have to be clumsily dubbed into Spanish. Irony abounds) and isn’t the first foreign-focused spin-off for the franchise. In 2010, they released Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night.

There may be sequels forever and ever, but this move is especially laudable for how transparently cash-grabby it is. Hopefully, Actividad Paranormal 2: La Llorona’s Revenge will be ready by the time Paranormal Activity 5 and Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night 2: Tokyo Afternoon both hit screens.
