After two weekends of sold-out midnight-only limited release, Paranormal Activity (AKA, this year's new Blair Witch) has been allowed out during daylight. Has the film become less scary, or just convinced the studio that it can make money?

The news of a wider release for the movie comes after a second weekend of sold-out midnight screenings that earned the movie an average of $16,000 per screen. The all-day screenings at 40 locations is much smaller than the rumored 100 location number, but consider the buzz that the movie's currently getting from being relatively difficult to see, and be patient.
