Paranormal Activity 4,” from directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, launches wide domestically on Oct. 19, though Par plans to kick-start the film’s release the evening before with midnight screenings.

This month last year, “Paranormal Activity 3” earned a franchise-best $8 million from midnights — 30% better than the three-quel’s predecessor — which led into the highest three-day domestic opening for a horror film at $52.6 million.

The “Paranormal Activity” franchise so far has tallied more than $575 million collectively worldwide.
