Paranormal Activity Finally Gets A Release Date

The ultra-low-budget horror film Paranormal Activity has been building praise for the past few years—after successful showings at the Screamfast and Slamdance film festivals, and most recently at Telluride. Anne Thompson is now reporting that the film is set for a September 25 release by Paramount. Given that the film was shot for $11,000 over a week, I don't think the studio is worried too much about pushing it out there without a huge marketing campaign.

Judging from the critical response to this film at the various festivals (it's still at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 5 reviews), Peli's low budget experiment will get some sort of reaction out of you. I'm hoping it's one that involves being curled up in the fetal position.
