    ★★½ Rewatched by James Davies 01 Mar, 2016

    Apart from a few jump scares, this sequel just reuses the same formula and scares from the first film. Not too sure the story for the first film needed fleshing out this much either. Not a terrible sequel, but not as original and creative as the first.

    Part 2 of "Swaying doors, powder footprints and tits in white vests" RANKING THE PARANORMAL ACTIVITY FRANCHISE.

    After the impact of the first film on the movie-going public, it was inevitable that a sequel would be on the way...
    Paranormal Activity 2 is a sequel to the original, while at the same time, being a prequel, as we uncover the mystery of the demon that troubled Katie, and ultimately led to the death of Micah in the first film.

    I find this to be a very solid pre-sequel that builds on the promise of the first film. They keep things simple and have some great tension building and jump scares that do not feel forced. The cast is solid and comes of as a real family. I love the way it ties to the first film and it's a recommend if you enjoyed the original.

    After enjoying the original more than I had expected, I actually went into this sequel a bit more open minded. For the beginning at least i felt like my faith was rewarded. But then it just seemed to get stuck in a loop.

    First the good. This sequel showcased Katie from the first movies sister and her family. This is when you learn this is mostly a prequel that mixes into the originals timeline. The family in this one were…

    Paranormal Activity 2 brings back the same found footage style that the first movie had and it has a direct link to the first movie with Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat returning for cameos in the sequel. The budget was exponentially bigger for this edition despite the whole film taking place on one location just like the first film. I like the way that the film involved a true family rather than just a couple. That dynamic made the horror…

    A very unsettling and chilling follow-up to the first film. New techniques and a new cast make this film worth being in your horror movie collection.

    A direct prequel AND sequel to the first movie, it explains what happened to the other sister.

    I think the main issue with this movie is how closely it mirrors the first movie. How many houses come with hanging den lights and long flights of stairs... in California?

    Still, in a way, it's an important enough chapter in the franchise, as it ties in everything else (no spoilers here). The only thing I can't understand is how old Kristi is…

    As the film got darker, I could begin to see my reflection in the screen. I looked myself in the eye and thought "This is why you're single".......

    I've only ever seen the first one of the this series and it was OK, but as they started to release them every year, I knew it just became a cash grab. Cheap to make and a fuckload of teens will see them.

    Utterly devoid of any real tension, although Katie Featherston…
