Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Director Chris Landon has called this fifth Paranormal Activity a "cousin" to the found-footage horror series. While it features the demon from the PA canon that previously claimed Kristi and Katie, it incorporates new Catholic themes, a Latino cast and overcrowded Californian apartments as its setting.

Paraplegic Activity : The Crap Ones

Paranormal Activity : The Marked Ones Have you seen the others? No need, it's just like them, only different. The 'Hangover' series was the same and different as are these. Few great scarey bits, yet I felt it was only scarey in the Alfred Hitchcock kind of way, it's what you don't see. If you live alone maybe not the best flick to watch by yourself,...

The haunted house setpieces provide reliable doses of jolts, even if one can see the scaffolding of each scare being built from miles away, and director Landon has fun with some clever camera placement here and there.

A sort of-sequel that only dovetails with the 2007 original via a strained coda and its use of the increasingly tired-looking found-footage gimmick.

As ever with this series, the shocks are cheap but effective, and the shaky-cam aesthetic adds an unsettling layer of realism (if you’re willing to overlook the innate ridiculousness of the film-everything concept).

There's no escaping that the found-footage phenomenon has gone from fresh and original to just plain annoying.

The shocks are no less effective than the ones in the other Paranormal Activity movies, but no more original, either, with only the whipping of a handheld camera to set it apart from the offscreen gamesmanship that’s long been the series’ stock in trade.

The script succeeds by expanding the Paranormal Activity mythology with additional details and even a few surprising twists.

Better than your average Part 5, this delivers enough scares and twists to satisfy longtime fans.
