EXCLUSIVE: Directors Ben Peyser and Scott Rutherford Talk ‘Ghost Team One’

This Halloween will be the first time in five years that a Paranormal Activity movie hasn't been in theaters. If you're missing the demon, Paramount still has you covered with the found footage thriller Ghost Team One, which isn't just packed full of crazy horror, but also serves up some of the funniest jokes seen on screen this year. It perfectly captures the tension and terror of a Paranormal Activity movie. But it also does something that franchise fails to do. It gives us characters we actually care about and a story that isn't completely reliant on the next jump scare.

We're going to say it: Ghost Team One is better than all four of the previous Paranormal Activity movies combined! And we'd much rather see Ghost Team Two at this point than Ghostbusters 3.

EXCLUSIVE: VIVIS Talks ‘Paranormal Activity 2’

Paranormal Activity 2's Vivis talks about playing the maid Martine, Paranormal Activity 3 and more.

When the Paranormal Activity hit theaters in October 2009, it took the country by storm, raking in a massive $104.7 million at the box office, from just a $15,000 budget, making it one of the most profitable studio movies of all time. Just a year later, Paranormal Activity 2 hit theaters and proved this franchise had staying power, taking in an impressive $84.7 million off a slightly-larger $2.75 million budget. Paranormal Activity 2 also introduced us to a new set of characters, one of whom is Martine, portrayed by VIVIS, a housemaid that has experience with supernatural entities.

Loaded with suspense and punctuated by moments of sudden and unexpected horror right up to the shocking ending, Paranormal Activity is more frightening to watch at home, even with the lights on. Written and directed by Oren Peli, the intense and chilling story follows a young, middle-class couple who become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be demonic, but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially while they sleep.
