Following "Paranormal Activity's" robust debut in a handful of midnight screenings last weekend, Paramount Pictures said Monday that it is bringing its micro-budget thriller to 20 more cities on Friday. Paramount said more than 200,000 fans have registered interest in the movie via a "Paranormal" website, and writer-director Oren Peli's $15,000 movie about a couple's nocturnal nightmare will be coming to many of the cities representing the greatest interest.

The studio said the cities with the highest demand for exclusive midnight showings included Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Dallas, Houston, San Diego, Phoenix, San Francisco and Philadelphia. The movie will also come to Atlanta, Miami, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Denver, Detroit, Baltimore, Sacramento, San Jose and Tampa.
