It comes as no surprise to me that the Paranormal Activity franchise has proven to have such incredible longevity. I mean, these movies must be dirt cheap to produce, and they always rake in a ton of box office dough. So it should also come as no surprise that the franchise is starting to spin off into tangential movies, like Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, seen here. The studio is clearly trying to pull a similar trick to Fast & Furious by centering the film on a Hispanic cast hoping to cash in on that audience demographic, and frankly, it will probably work out pretty well in their favour. As for the movie itself, well, the preview looks fine. It looks like another Paranormal Activity movie. The bit with the guy pulling that thing out of his eye is creepy. In other words, I’ll watch this once it’s on video.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones comes out January 3, 2014.
