Need a movie to watch this Halloween? “Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” officially arrived on Paramount+ on Friday.

The David Eubanks-directed horror film, about a woman searching for information on her mother’s disappearance, marks the seventh installment in the “Paranormal Activity” franchise.

Emily Bader stars in the horror flick as Margot, a documentary filmmaker who heads to a secluded Amish community in the hopes of meeting and learning about her long-lost mother and extended family. After a string of strange occurrences and discoveries, she soon realizes that people in the community could be hiding a sinister secret.

Roland Buck III, Henry Ayres-Brown, and Tom Nowicki round out the cast.

“Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” was written by Christopher Landon, who also executive-produced the film alongside Steven Schneider and Jenny Hinkey. Jason Blum and Oren Peli are producers.
