I recently posted the first official trailer of Paranormal Activity 4. Well, today I’m posting the first teaser poster for ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’, which will be Hispanic with a full Hispanic cast.
‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ will be released on January 3rd, 2014. This date worries me because people are barely getting rid of their New Year’s hangovers and NO ONE is really watching movies around this time. I believe they gave it a death sentence and I think it won’t do well. Paramount is banking on the marketing success from their own indie horror waste The Devil Inside from 2012 which cost 1 million dollars and made $53,245,055 domestically. That film was released January 6, three days later than ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’. Those three days make a HUGE difference. They’re also trying to bank on the Latino audiences that made ‘The Devil Inside’ into a shocker hit (but with a bad word of mouth).
If the film is successful, expect a Latino franchise spinoff from ‘Paranormal Activity,’ plus many more Latino horror movies from competing movie studios. If not, they’ll be seldomly made.
