In short: this story follows an 18 year old boy that discovers he is part of a larger demonic plot and succumbs to the evil that is his destiny.
I enjoyed the first 3 PAs. But by the end of the 3rd film i was starting to feel the fatigue of the series. Ooh, a door movies. Oooh, there was a gust of wind. And there will be a loud bang.........NOW. It is almost like a familiar song, you know when and what is going to happen. Again, i must repeat, i still like the first 3 films. The 4th film.... i was bored. Sorry, but i was. I felt that none of the acting was sincere and i wanted to shake the blonde chick and say "please... please TRY TO ACT!"
but i digress...
unlike the "ooh, stuff moves" scares of the previous films, this film is much more of a ... typical demon themed horror movie with a little bit of mystery, covens, and witch stuff. Overall, it was able to breathe some new life (by using typical horror movie tropes) into a series that had become stale. What is interesting here is that this movie, given the expectations of the franchise, made old tropes seem new again. Pretty cool, huh?
The chronological order of the movie is rather... confusing but I still enjoyed the movie and would recommend people watch it.
"Paranormal Activity" began with a mysterious demon haunting a woman for no reason; "Paranormal Activity 2" extended that to a demonic cult dedicated to binding a demon to a first born child; the third installment was a flashback, but the fourth extended the conspiracy to a witch cult. As you can see from the progression of the franchise, "Paranormal Activity" keeps upping the ante, and by "The Marked Ones" we now have evidence of a global conspiracy to raise an army of demonically-possessed children.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Suffice it to say that Jesse (Andrew Jacobs) hangs out with his buddy Hector (Jorge Diaz) after graduating, and in between smoking pot, hanging out with the hot "only a friend" Marisol (Gabrielle Walsh) and filming really stupid stunts, they stumble upon a witch conspiracy that involves a murder and their valedictorian classmate, Oscar (Carlos Pratts). Whereas the earlier films used innovative, creepy techniques that played to the found-footage genre, "The Marked Ones" is content just to use a single camera.Read more ›

Too scary but it was imaginative and interesting stuff like when they used an electronic toy instead of a board to talk to the other side and stuff like that. Read morePublished 1 month ago by wiggles
Well, that was terrifying. The commenters here saying it was boring have A.D.D. If it made us jump every 5 seconds from the beginning, by the end the jump scares would have lost... Read morePublished 2 months ago by sunflower
