PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES, scary but remarkably cinematic
The story starts in June 2012 in Oxnard, California. Jesse has a party with his family and friends to celebrate his high school graduation. One morning, Jesse finds a mysterious bite on his arm which somehow gives him superhuman abilities. When he and his friend Hector are confronted by two thugs who attack them, Jesse knocks them out. When they relate the incident to their other friend Marisol, Jesse cannot remember how it happened
Anna, the strange old witch-like neighbor of Jesse, is killed, and the police suspect that Oscar, a former classmate of Jesse, is the prime suspect. Jesse and his friend decide to find out what Anna's apartment looks like. They find black magic rituals and a picture of Jesse and several VHS tapes - including tapes of Katie & Kristi (from the third film). The next day, Jesse and Hector meet Penelope. Penelope finds a trap door in the apartment leading to a basement and is grabbed by an arm before she breaks free and runs away. Jesse arrives back and chases Oscar who reveals that he did kill Anna because she bit his arm. Oscar then commits suicide by jumping from a building onto the top of a car.
Jesse is becoming even more dark and his homicidal actions are uncontrollable, during which he tortures the family dog and murders his grandmother after she tries to save him by using magic. Hector and Marisol seek help from Arturo and find that Oscar had been in contact with Ali Rey, who had researched demons after the events of the second film. She tells them about a coven using demons to create an army of possessed young men and gives them an address where a final ritual is to take place. Before they can head to the address, they are attacked by a now-possessed Jesse, whom they manage to knock out. Hector and Marisol decide to take him to the hospital but Hector's car is rammed by a mysterious truck. Hector and Marisol are knocked out and Jesse is kidnapped. After regaining consciousness, Hector and Marisol seek help from Arturo and his friend, Santo, before heading to the address where they believe Jesse has been taken. There, they find a gateway that takes them to an "unholy place", which is Grandma Lois' house at the time the third film ended. More horrifying events happen that time seems to melt and characters from past episodes come alive once more. Watch how this installment of paranormal activity unfolds and horrifyingly ends.
