Touted as the scariest film ever made with a $11,000 budget, “Paranormal Activity” will have its run extended by Paramount Pictures after selling out all of its Thursday through Saturday midnight screenings across 33 cities.

Originally planned to receive limited screenings, demands for the film exploded online with its innovative website that allows users to demand that the film gets screened in their city. “Paranormal Activity” will now be expanded to over 40 markets commencing this weekend, as well as being offered at various hours instead of its previously screened midnight time in some venues.

The story follows a young couple who moves into a suburban home only to find it inhabited by a strange presence that appears mainly at night while they try to sleep. Fed up, they set up video surveillance hoping to capture the phenomenon, and what they capture is what is you will see.
