The films, a compilation of camera footage, are especially known for their shoestring budgets, with the original reportedly having been made on a $15,000 budget. The franchise has always been a money-spinner, and a lucrative option for Paramount, till their last, The Ghost Dimension. The film earned a total of $78 million at the box office, which was a considerable dip from the peak collections standing at $207 million for Paranormal Activity 3, which released in 2011.

After the dismal performance of The Ghost Dimension, the upcoming projects were shelved for quite some time.

The first film is about a young couple who move to a new house in San Diego, and are haunted by a demon. The film, directed by Oren Peli, received an overwhelming response, and was extremely profitable, earning $193 million worldwide.

The previous six films have grossed $400 million in North America, and $890 million worldwide.
