Lionsgate has decided to go the 'Paranormal Activity' route with their upcoming "microbudget" slate by offering 10 films per year, made for under $2 million bucks a pop. Real microbudget features are made for considerably less. To put things into perspective for you, Paramount's supernatural success story, 'Paranormal Activity' cost $15,000 to make. The movie eventually went on to gross $108 million worldwide, thanks to a grassroots marketing campaign that took on a life of its own.

So, let's try not to complain, because this means Lionsgate's upcoming roster may be conceptually more interesting with less focus on trying to pander to the masses and fill theater seats -- in theory anyway. The studio has announced the first three films under this new umbrella and one of them includes a film about the Antichrist.
