Watch: Creepy New Trailers for 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones' and 'Devil's Due'

Oct 17, 2013

Paranormal Activity the Marked OnesWe're a mere two weeks from Halloween (14 more days til Halloween, Halloween. 14 more days til Halloween, Silver Shamrock! ), so this is like the best time of the year to release your spiffy new fright-film trailer. Today we've got two for your consideration -- one a spin-off of one of the genre's most popular franchises, another a sort of modern riff on an old classic. 
It seems a little weird for it to be the middle of October without a new Paranormal Activity film looming on the horizon. For the past few years, Halloween season has marked the arrival of a new entry in the found-footage franchise, but this year all we got was this trailer for Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

This latest installment in the series is an attempt to spin things off in some new directions, this time focusing on a Latino family and Catholic imagery. For those of you worrying that The Marked Ones will wander far afield from the main series' mythology, stop fretting. The trailer (which is probably longer than it needs to be) shows us lots of stuff that keeps Christopher Landon's (Michael Landon's son) entry tied to the main features.

If you haven't had enough shaky-cam footage of people being flung around by invisible forces, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones should scratch your supernatural itch. It's in theaters in January (aka the other October) next year. [via Indie Wire]

Our second trailer of the day comes from filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who might be more recognizable to you as two members of the group Radio Silence. The four-man crew gave us the "10/31/98" segment of last year's hit horror anthology V/H/S. Now they've branched out with Devil's Due -- a modern-day riff on Rosemary's Baby.

The clip looks fairly paint by numbers, with a young woman slowly being taken over by the evil entity growing inside her. "10/31/98" seemed pretty traditional as well, but was bolstered by the way the filmmakers shot the tale. Perhaps that will be the case here as well. We'll find out when Devil's Due is birthed into the movie world on January 17 [via Yahoo!]
