"Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" has officially been hyped. The trailer, released today, is terrifying.
The movie comes out in January, but already has the makings of a first-rate thriller, just like its predecessors. It is marketed as a Latino spin-off of the successful "Paranormal Activity" franchise.
The premise is this: Some teenager no-goodnicks (Andrew Jacobs, Jorge Diaz, Carlos Pratts and Gloria Sandova) led by 20-something Jessie, break into the home of a recently deceased woman and record what they find. The home is unsettling in it's ambiance with voodoo trinkets and dreamcatchers all over the place.
In the apartment is a box of video tapes marked "Katie and Kristi" ( a nod to characters from the other "Paranormal" films), some photographs of Jesse and a whole lot of blood. The house is obviously home to some unrestful dead, who decide to follow the kids home and disturb their lives as well as the lives of all those around them.
Of course this one will continue in true "Paranormal Activity" fashion that we've grown to know and love, with shaky "found footage" format. Eeek. Makes it seem so real, doesn't it?
This one isn't "Paranormal Activity 5", but that is actually a film that is also on its way. That one is slated to hit theaters in the United States after "Marked Ones", on October 25, 2014, just in time for Halloween...
Makes you want to go out and buy a house, doesn't it? YIkes!
