Theatrical Releases: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES || January 3rd, 2014

BeyondOutrage-poster 2010 saw the first “Outrage” film released. Four years later, the sequel “Beyond Outrage” finds its way to theaters. From Japanese director Takeshi Kitano, these films are about the Yakuza and the revenge that is inflicted by one man. Although I need to see the first film prior, this film reminds me of the same idea that “Oldboy” achieves, and with that being an amazing achievement, I owe it to myself to see these films eventually.

ParanormalActivityTheMarkedOnes-poster I wouldn’t say I get excited for the new “Paranormal Activity” films, but having seen all four already and being a big fan of horror films in general, I will be seeing the latest installment, “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”. Still related to the rest of the franchise, this film is like a side step story before “Paranormal Activity 5”, supposedly due out in October 2014. Following a mostly Latino cast, the film does look to briefly have Molly Ephraim, who was the daughter in “Paranormal Activity 2”. With mediocre reviews pouring in already, it will at least be somewhat enjoyable.

BestOffer-poster Geoffrey Rush steps into this art filled thriller about a woman who refuses to be seen by the world, hiding behind a wall while she deals with Rush’s character. Also starring Jim Sturgess, “The Best Offer” has enough going on to warrant a viewing and even though I’m not sure I buy Rush’s character having a relationship with such a young woman, the film is different enough to feel fresh and intriguing.

OpenGrave-poster With an intriguing concept and actor Sharlto Copley continuing a strong career following his debut in 2009’s “District 9”, this new thriller titled “Open Grave” sees him waking up in a giant grave of dead people and being pulled out by a mysterious group of people. What looks to be some kind of zombie thriller, the trailer tries not to give much away and eludes the viewer from what is actually going on, leaving bits and pieces a mystery, which I appreciate.
