Does “PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES” Look to Expand the Mythology of the Series
Conceived as a Latino audience-oriented spin-off to the current reigning horror series, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES sees the black magick that’s tormented Katie and her family veer off to another. Interestingly, it looks to find room for typical found footage frights and the meat of the films’ mythology the fourth, intensely bland film was so desperately lacking.
In PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES, a young man investigates the apartment of his dead downstairs neighbor. There, he finds ritualistic paraphernalia that he seems to be caught directly in. Supernatural madness ensues.
It looks like THE MARKED ONES will give us a more intimate look at what someone being overtaken by the demons of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY goes through, as opposed to the vague transformation of Katie. Plus, is that the daughter from PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 reappearing for demon-centric exposition?
Have you lost any goodwill towards PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, or might the more energetic nature of THE MARKED ONES pull you back in? What about that PARANORMAL 3-related spooky surprise at the end of the trailer?
