Yesterday (Friday The 13th!) Bloody-Disgusting co-hosted a Los Angeles screening of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. LA was just one of the 13 US cities (it was a global event with screenings in Mexico City, Sydney and many others) that were selected to screen the film a bit early and the reaction was INSANE.
Everyone I heard from seemed to really like The Marked Ones and it seems like other screenings had an equally enthusiastic reaction (our Chicago staff seemed to dig it was well). While I can’t review the film just yet, I can say that I had a blast with it. It’s easily neck-and-neck with PA3 for me and the general consensus out there seems to be that it’s a vast improvement over PA4.
Written and directed by Christopher Landon, and starring Richard Cabral, Carlos Pratts, and Eddie J. Fernandez, the Latino-themed haunter begins “After being “marked,” Jesse begins to be pursued by mysterious forces while his family and friends try to save him.”
Glad to have Paranormal Activity back to firing on all cylinders.
