Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

¡Cinco peliculas!

Rod Lott April 23rd, 2014

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage concept of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

Don’t worry; the characters still drop a ton of F-bombs.

Troubles begin when fresh high school graduate Jesse (newcomer Andrew Jacobs) notices odd goings-on in the unit below, occupied by a woman who fellow residents believe to be a witch. That would explain the nude rituals … and the murder of Jesse’s classmate. After poking into the witch’s affairs, Jesse acquires a superpower, putting a Chronicle twist on the proceedings.

Director Christopher Landon might swap a Ouija board for Milton Bradley’s Simon, but otherwise, this is business as usual. How they converge is incredibly clever, provided you’ve seen the earlier entries; others might be left in the dark during the final 10 minutes. — Rod Lott
