What it's about:

After being "marked," Jesse begins to be pursued by mysterious forces while his family and friends try to save him.

What the critics say:

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.
- Tom Huddleston, Time Out New York

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

There's no escaping that the found-footage phenomenon has gone from fresh and original to just plain annoying.
-  Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

The Latino cast gives the movie a fresh, modern feel, but the underlying formula is becoming unacceptably stale.
-  Rafer Guzman, Newsday
