This is where “The Marked Ones” diverges from previous “Paranormal Activity” entries. Instead of creating a feeling of doom and gloom, the film initially builds up a sense of mystique and wonder surrounding Jesse’s marked status. We soon #sulia src="http://track.sitetag.us/tracking.js?hash=ef961e89f320544ac4fa8da09c65e777"> learn that being marked comes with some supernatural advantages. A spirit now watches over Jesse who allows him to be stronger, faster, and impervious to damage. It all seems like a gift, but things inevitably turn sour and an ominous atmosphere soon sinks in.
And even though Hector is the film’s “comedic relief”, he doesn’t come off as obnoxious or annoying; he’s very much a believable character. He seemingly has no greater aspiration in life than to be a good friend and, for that reason, he’s easy to like. Both Jesse and Hector are approachable characters, without any real complexity to them. The conflict in the film arises when Jesse and Hector witness a fellow high schooler named Oscar (Carlos Pratts aka Gus from “The Bridge”) leaving the apartment of a woman many believe to be a witch. Of course, this prompts the two to dig a little deeper and Jesse soon discovers that he and Oscar share a connection to a familiar coven of witches who have chosen them to be “marked ones.”
In a lot of ways, this film felt like it was blending themes from “The Wolfman” with elements from “Chronicle” and placing them in the context of the “Paranormal Activity” universe. Initially having the powers is fun and leads to a lot of humorous moments in the first half of the film. However, Jesse soon begins to fear the growing beast inside of him and worries that it might hurt him or someone he loves. Jesse almost appears to be a Talbot type character that is frightened by what he is, but is unable to stop himself.
