The unexpected ending of "Paranormal Activity" spiked an Internet search for "Micah Sloat dead" in the days after the film's nationwide release. Both Micah Sloat and Katie Featherston (who played 'themselves') are actors living in California, although their credit lists are short. This is sure to change since the two are now the talk of the horror-indie genre. Katie and Micah were paid just $500 when they were first cast for the low-budget film. Since the nationwide release of "Paranormal Activity," both Micah and Katie have been offered several gigs.
