This is a disappointment. Jessie is an 18 year old Latin boy, who becomes possessed by a demon. The possession happens gradually, and Jessie transmogrifies from a happy teenage kid, into a violent and extremely physically powerful maniac. His best friend films all this with a hand-held camera which, unfortunately, gives a very jerky motion to the movie (in a style made trendy by the US TV series NYPD Blue). This becomes quite annoying after the first ten or fifteen minutes. The Spanish movie REC did the same sort of thing, only far more effectively. There is no background music, I'm not sure if this adds to or detracts from the film. You don't really get to know anything about the characters, which means you don't feel anything when something nefarious happens to them. Jessie's friends stick by him for a long way into the movie, which rings hollow, because you just know what they would really do is get on the telephone to the police and the nearest psychiatric hospital. Surprisingly, there is not a single jump out of your seat moment, which is surely the whole point of a movie like this. By the end of the movie, the jerky motion of the camera becomes very annoying, and you find yourself looking away from the screen. There is lots of screaming and running along unlit corridors, but I found my attention drifting throughout the film, which is usually a reflection that you don't care about the fate of the characters. Buy REC or The Conjuring instead. Or, if you haven't watched it yet, try The Exorcist.

'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones' is a supernatural horror film that released in 2014. It is the fifth installment in the Paranormal Activity film series. The film was met with a mixed response, however succeeded at the box-office and became a hit.

The plot revolves around two friends, Jesse Arista (Andrew Jacobs) and Hector Estrella (Jorge Diaz). They discover, after the death of a neighbor that Jesse has been marked by demonic witches for possession.

I have seen the previous four installments in the series and enjoyed all of them, a guilty pleasure they are. On this occasion, different tactics are employed, with success I must add. More emphasis is placed on the build up of suspense and tension as opposed to the normal false scares. There is a different fresh setting with a dash of humor that works. Last but not least, the performances of the lead actors come across as real adding an edge to the horror.

The sustained suspense and tension works wonders as the frights, which there aren't many compared to previous outings, become more effective. I found this feature to be more creepy than scary and still enjoyable. The film ends with a good twist.

The acting by the lead actors is the best I've seen in all outings. The characters seem real making the horror solid and spooky.

The direction by Christopher B. Landon makes the movie a cinematic offering than the normal strict found footage format. There is considerably less annoying amateur style camera work that always gives me a headache. His different approach has for me re-energized the franchise.

'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones' is a horror event in the series that leaves a serious mark!

This latest installment I found to be the least in the series. Kids graduate and start filming everything, attempting to show us Hispanics know nothing about filming. After Oscar kills Anna, and everyone seems to know this but the cops, our group of film makers break into her place so they can get their fingerprints at the crime scene and steal her book of demonic doorways. Later Jesse, talks to a Simon game, because Ouija boards are so passe. It seems the same possessed Chihuahua has bitten Jesse as Oscar. At some point in time they opt to tie the series all together by filming poorly lit scenes with people screaming and a camera going through a jerking motion, enough to cause inner ear sickness.

Oh yes, the acting sucked too. Sick a fork in it. It's done.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Nudity?

I guess it's kind of obvious but if you like the Paranormal Activity sequels so far (I do) then it's likely you'll enjoy this.

It takes a new set of characters, a younger Latin American crowd, and does something slightly different with the Paranormal Activity folklore, which ties into the previous films nicely. The style is a little different also, instead of the familiar static camera shots this is mainly a guys carrying a camera and filming EVERYTHING they do sort of style. It worked for me, bringing a bit of freshness to the storyline.

There's the usual creepiness and enough jumpy moments to satisfy. Decent stuff and worth 80 minutes of your time.

I liked the fist few of the various Paranoral type films but with each successive film the plot got more contrived and unbelievable.
This latest effort is almost unwatchable in its desperate attempt to shock, with the usual hand-held camera being waved about and West Coast teen-lingo being muttered all over the place.
The makers have obviously run out of ideas as evidenced by this forlorn attempt at a horror film.
No more please.
