The latest installment in the Paranormal Activity franchise won’t be hitting theaters until January, but fans craving a look at Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones can view its first trailer, released today.

Directed by Christopher Landon, who wrote the three previous Paranormal movies, the film repeats the franchise’s found-footage format, with shaky shots of the characters searching through the home of a recently deceased woman. A spin-off of PA featuring Latino characters, the film follows protagonist Jesse (Andrew Jacobs), who, after being “marked,” begins to be pursued by mysterious forces while his family and friends try to save him.

Check out the creepy trailer below.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones hits theaters Jan. 3, 2014. Paranormal Activity 5, by the way, arrives in theaters next October.
