    Dogs. Babies. Ghosts. That's all you need to know.

    essentially the "same" movie as the first (at least in its attempt to hit the same beats narratively and emotionally) but with a dramatically altered framing device; mostly being shot from removed / multiple "outsider" perspectives (whereas the original was largely shot from one vantage point and generally had a specific perspective.) this creates the feeling of the horror sequel cliche "more is more" (more pov's, more potential for spooky stuff to happen) and most specifically having the framing device…

    Not as effective as the first, but not terrible either. The most common flaws of found-footage are more painfully present in this one. However, its tie to the first film was cleverly done, there weren't an abhorrent amount of jump scares and it ended on a more subtle note than the first one. Ultimately though, waiting through and hour and a half of nothing happening is no fun.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Under the logic of "more is better", this film gives "more":

    - More characters
    - A bigger house
    - More cameras
    - More noises
    - Louder noises
    - More loud noises
    - More jump scares (that affect the rating negatively)
    - More filler scenes
    - More themes, such as exorcism and religion (sigh)
    - Many more laughable cardboard stereotypes of the upper-middle class family
    - More spoonfeeding! How beautiful it is to have the explanation of the plot spoonfed by…

    Don't ask what 11-year-old me was thinking when I first saw this, but this movie is not as great as I remembered. I feel bad trashing this film because I consider myself a fan of this franchise but this film is just not good. Most of the time there is no logical reason why they would be filming and the other time is spent trying to "out-do" the scares in the original and failing. Not to mention the continuity mistakes…

    [notes towards a larger essay: the movie as an interactive experience, not within the film itself, but the 'multi-media' experience of the film; PA1 + 3x "alternate" endings, only one of them compatible with the continuing narrative found here- the choose your own adventure without any forethought.] I thought this worked a lot better than the first one, and I'm always interested in 'sequels' that sort of intertextually link with what they're following instead of like specifically carrying on with…

    Here's how it goes: I'M GONNA RANSACK THIS WHOLE HOUSE! I'm going to gently bat at this baby mobile. I'M GONNA SLAM THE DOOR! I'm going to slowly pull the pool cleaner onto the patio. I'M GONNA FUCK UP THESE PANS!

    Gentle people, what we have here is either a very uneven movie, or a demon with bi-polar disorder. The follow-up to the horror sensation championed into distribution last year by an Internet campaign delivers a screech-inducing, yet bumpy rollercoaster…
