First look: ‘Paranormal Activity’


What: “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”

Cast: Andrew Jacobs, Richard Cabral, Carlos Pratts and Gabrielle Walsh

Writer-director: Christopher Landon

The story: Paramount isn’t releasing any information about this spinoff, but it’s safe to say you can expect plenty of found-footage-style terror.

The buzz: The first four installments of the low-budget franchise have earned more than $350 million in the U.S. alone. The most recent one, though, only pulled in roughly half of its predecessor. To try to correct that trend, this one is targeting Hispanic audiences, which have accounted for a disproportionately large amount of the series’ box-office haul.
