Dramatards Triathlon: Movies-7/10

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Score: 6/10

      After Jesse's high school graduation, unusual events start occurring and strange things began happening to Jesse which his friend Hector captures with his camera.

     I enjoyed the first Paranormal Activity movie but I've been less than impressed with the rest of the series. The first film was interesting but the overarching story continues to get messier and more confusing with each subsequent film release. The Marked Ones is billed as a spin-off of the series and I surprisingly enjoyed it. I felt that the film was pretty solid and only started to fall apart toward the end. The characters are interesting and the paranormal activity in the movie comes in a different form than what we've seen previously. There's also more of the familiar elements in the series-someone sensing an evil presence and trying to ward it off, common objects revealing the sinister force, pictures/markings being found that lead to an investigation, an appearance by Katie, and so on.). I would much more enjoy the series if it focused on different instances of paranormal activity that didn't all have to relate to a central story line.
