Paranormal Activity


The most recent and probably most notable on the list is the surprising paranormal horror film entry at the 2007 ScreamFest, Paranoral Activity. Credited as being the most profitable film ever made–in accordance with return-on-investment ratio–Paranormal Activity had a mere $15,000 budget, which turned around made a whopping $193 million at the worldwide box office.
