After the murder of a woman in Oxnard, California, high school graduates Jesse Arista and Hector Estrella (Andrew Jacobs, Jorge Diaz) break into her apartment and find mysterious things, including a journal of spells… This spin-off to the Paranormal Activity series has ties to it (that become more obvious as the story progresses) and was also shot as a found-footage exercise. The concept, as well as the Latino setting, is a little different and there are times when the film starts to resemble Chronicle (2012)… but apart from the intense climax, this is neither very scary nor substantial.
