The hit horror film Paranormal activity was adapted as a stage play thanks to Simone Amico Entertainment, which previously produced a Broadway play, Life of Pi.
Paranormal activity was created by Orne Peli, and wrote, directed and shot the first installment of the long-running series, made on a micro-budget. That first film is considered among the most profitable films ever made, grossing $193.4 million globally.
In the first film, released in 2007, a young couple, Katie and Micah, experience disturbing supernatural events in their San Diego home. To capture evidence of these events, Micah sets up a camera in their bedroom. As the nights pass, they witness increasingly alarming paranormal phenomena, including objects moving on their own and shadowy figures appearing. Seeking help, they consult a psychic who believes a malevolent entity is hunting Katie. Despite the warnings, Micah’s attempts to deal with the presence intensify the eeriness, leading to a chilling climax in which Katie’s behavior becomes strangely disturbing, culminating in a terrifying final night.
The Paranormal Activity stage show is in early development and is being written by Levi Holloway, who wrote the horror-tinged Broadway show. Gray House.
It will be interesting to see how they manage to turn it into a stage show. It actually could end up being a really fun and disturbing production if they get creative in how they get some of the scares out there.
