It's October, but for the first time in an age, there's no Paranormal Activity movie. Indeed, we're a full year out from the next official instalment, but to plug the gap, this January will see the release of a spin-off movie.
This is The Marked Ones, formerly The Oxnard Tapes, a Paranormal Activity with a latino cast. The first couple of seconds of this trailer might trick you into think it's not a found footage picture, but… no such luck.
Well, isn't that interesting. It looks like this one opens things up considerably, both in terms of locations, narrative elements and aesthetic. This could be a real shot in the arm for the series.
Or it could just be superficially different. I'll guess we'll find out in January.
