Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

Director: Christopher Landon. Cast: Andrew Jacobs, Jorge Diaz, Gabrielle Walsh, Katie Featherston. 84 min. Rated R. Horror/Thriller.

Glad I gave this franchise another chance, because how can the fifth installment of a series be "good", while the previous films kept getting worse and worse? Yes, again the whole issue of continued camera-holding during some unimaginably horrific moments of this "found footage" story, is as ludicrous as can be. But they've made some creative attempts here. The setting is completely different, and the last scene suddenly connects all five films in a way that I would call ... yes, baffling. Let's just say the concept includes time travel; now opening the possibilities for many more sequels to Paranormal Activity.

PS: Forget the Tomatometer score. After you've seen the movie, make sure you check out this article.
