Answering the call for more diversity in the state of being scared shitless, the Paranormal Activity franchise targets its considerable Latino fanbase with The Marked Ones, a spinoff that features primarily Latino actors being flung around this time. Though ostensibly separate from the main franchise, this trailer reveals how it will attempt to link itself to previous Paranormal entries: an overarching mythology about its protagonists being “marked” for possession; appearances from series mainstays Katie and Kristi; asking the audience to accept that its characters would be videotaping absolutely everything, etc. But all you really need to know is, if you enjoyed all the other Paranormal Activity movies, this one is a lot like it, only with different accents. It rises up out the spooky cinematic graveyard that is next January.
