Trailer: Elf Dolls Remain Hella Creepy in ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ Clip

Oh, god, why did I decide to watch this in the middle of the night?

Disregarding the fact that it doesn’t make any sense for someone to be filming themselves putting a doll back inside a box, creepy dolls that are possessed by demonic entities are one of the few things that make my skin crawl, and this thirty second trailer just punched that weakness in the kidney. I’m slowly desensitizing myself to the usual porcelain dolls that are used in horror movies, but for some reason seeing an elf doll’s face distort like that is wreaking a whole new kind of havoc on my nerves.

Plus, if you get past the section with the doll, other clips from the movie are shown, including some demon children speaking in demon voices. Did I mention that that’s one of my other weaknesses? Ick.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones comes to theaters January 3, 2014.
