You have to give it to the people behind Paranormal Activity’s first spin-off. Yesterday they premiered a very Halloween-inspired Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones poster. Today, as those in the world are celebrating Dia de los Muertos, they have released a Day of the Dead trailer that keeps the scares going for at least one more day.
As seen in that first Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones trailer, this spin-off is both a tribute and haunting love letter to the legions of Latino fans who have made the franchise one of the highest grossing in horror history. It is also devilishly smart to widen the world of Paranormal Activity by introducing the idea of not only that family at the heart of the first four films haunted by the “Activity,” but also anyone who is “Marked” as the title so brilliantly suggests.
Look for the first of two Paranormal Activity movies in 2014 on January 3, 2014.
