In the spirit of the spookiest month of the year, the Paranormal Activity empire premiered it’s third installment of supernatural horror. Racking in $135,504,654 worldwide at the box office, Paranormal Activity 3 has been terrifying audiences since it’s debut on October 21st. Not bad for a franchise that started with a tiny budget of just $11,000.
The third film serves as a prequel, set 18 years prior to the events of the first two films. The film broke financial records upon release, setting a new record for a midnight opening for a horror film ($8 million), the best opening day for a horror film in the United States ($26.2 million), the highest opening for any film in October, highest opening for a film in the fall (September–October), and setting a record opening for the franchise ($52.6 million).

In this genre, it’s rare that sequels (or prequels in this case) succeed, but this film is clearly an exception.
If you have watched TV throughout the past few weeks, then I’m sure you’ve witnessed the creepy snippets of the trailer. I don’t know about you but there’s something about children in horror films that gives me the goosebumps. The movie uses elements of home-footage as it follows young Katie and Kristi as they are terrorized by an invisible demon.
So you’re probably wondering, what does Sports Studio have to do with supernatural demons and screaming children? Well, we’ll tell you why.
Have you ever seen the movie, “Sports Camp”? Exactly, neither have we. That’s because production for the Paranormal Activity 3 wanted to keep filming under wraps by using this as a working title until the film’s debut. “Sports Camp” approached us back in June looking for a youth soccer jersey, and with no questions asked, we provided.
Come to find out, five months later, our jersey made it’s big debut in one of the most successful horror movie’s of all time. If you’re not looking down in fear the whole time, keep an eye out for it.
Head down to the theater this Halloween if you dare. Here’s a look at the official trailer. Happy Halloween!
