Consensus: A change of setting breathes some new life into the franchise, but Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones fails to provide enough consistent thrills to justify a fifth film in the series.

Wesley Morris

There's no getting past the nonsense formality of taking that camera everywhere.

Boston Globe

This fifth in the series further diminishes the promise of the 2007 original, replacing mystery and suspense with predictability and misogyny.

Chris Stuckmann

This film is not scary, it's simply an exercise in waiting for a loud, ear piercing musical cue that forces us to be startled.

Time Out

The plot is a confusing, derivative mishmash of half-baked supernatural clichés, and the total absence of characterization makes it hard to care what happens.

TIME Magazine

Provides the familiar cheap thrills but with a salsa tang.

The List

The law of diminishing returns mean this is now an exercise repetition: the tricks have all lost their power to terrify and The Marked Ones is just a vaguely spooky shadow of its a former self.

Entertainment Weekly

The leads are appealing but the best scares will be familiar to anyone who has seen the previous films - or, for that matter, the trailer.

Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post

Many of the core elements of the earlier movies are retained here, including the increasingly annoying found-footage gimmick.

Cinema Crazed

A great effort, but a sub-par horror film.

After a very very disappointing fourth film, the Paranormal Activity franchise was clearly on the rocks and had no flavour left in it. "Paranormal… More

Fifth entry in the Paranormal Activity series is a strained and unnecessary sequel in a series that has overstayed its welcome. This entry is just an excuse to… More

Too drawn out, not enough story, and the one or two decent thrills it provides do not justify an entire feature. Paranormal Activity 2, 4, and The Marked Ones… More
