First Glance: “Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin”

Full disclosure (again) – I don’t have any real connection the “Paranormal Activity” series. I don’t know anything about its timeline and couldn’t tell you anything of value about the previous movies outside of the first couple. I’m also not a fan of found-footage horror movies (they were fun at first but wore out their welcome years ago). Yet strangely, the new trailer “Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” grabbed my attention.

“Next of Kin” is essentially the seventh installment in the “PA” franchise, but it’s advertised as a full reboot of the series. Horror guru Jason Blum produces this story of a young woman shooting a documentary that chronicles her visit to an Amish village. There she’s set to meet a biological relative who may have information about her late mother’s past. As the trailer makes abundantly clear, things get pretty macabre and her visit quickly turns terrifying.

“Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” premieres October 29th on Paramount+ streaming. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I had never seen any of those films in the franchise and it’s likely that I won’t watch this as I have no interest in having Paramount+ at this moment as my mom and I have enough streaming platforms for now as she just discovered AppleTV and has fallen in love with the show Acapulco. It’s a really good show so far.

    • I can’t imagine you’re missing much by skipping it. I’ve seen the first two and barely remember either. I just like the look of this trailer right up to where the found footage stuff kicks in.
