    Even though I don't think this even remotely matches the greatness of the first film, I do think Paranormal Activity 2 is a little better than some people say.

    The found footage effect doesn't work whatsoever here, and it definitely distracted me from what was actually going on. It also lost the claustrophobic feel of the first film. The original involved two people with only like two different settings, the bedroom and the downstairs.

    This sequel involved an entire family,…

    Why do horror movies have to have such dumbass protagonists? I just wanted to shake these characters to stop them from making idiotic decisions. Anyway it's a pretty boring film with a seemingly infinite amount of setup. Demons never like to start killing straight away apparently, they just want to rattle doors and open cupboards and stuff for weeks on end. Less chilling, more killing please.

    Still just as boring as the first one.

    My boyfriend forced me to see this. I don't handle scary movies well no matter how dumb they are.

    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…
