PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES - UPCOMING

Jessie (Andrew Jacobs) begins experiencing a number of disturbing and inexplicable things after the death of his neighbour. As he investigates, it isn't long before Jessie finds he's been marked for possession by a malevolent demonic entity, and it's only a matter of time before he is completely under its control. (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones opens January 23, 2014)

The poster had me at first glance: in the iconic pose of Mary Mother of God is a skull, bearing a red triangular mark holding prisoner within it a circle, on its forehead. The slightly tilted head in pious repose, smacks against the brutality of the silvery black skull.

The ghostly, eyeless young female is another haunting image from the film, but the demonic chaos that threatens everywhere is perhaps the most persuasive: this is an evil that may ooze off the screen. Scream, if you can.

This Paranormal franchise has a unique signature which has kept it aloft so far: the found footage nature of the filmmaking. But this latest edition has been dubbed the Latino Paranormal Ö just because itís no longer restricted to Los Angeles white people. That may be the fresh new texture the franchise needs.

This is a sponsored post but opinions are my own. Andrew L. Urban
