    Kind of dig the redundancy of its images - pool, kitchen, stairwell - before the hyper accelerated demon takes its preposterous hold. In an effort to make the drill more enlivened, Williams and his writers have turned the low key horror jolts into a supernatural epic, invoking "first-born" tomfoolery and queasy exorcism jargon to ratchet up the minor key of the first film. Also, unlike the first film, this essentially avoids a conflict outside of the monster; the central family…

    This was a funny one for me because I genuinely thought I had seen it. And yet, when I turned on Netflix and suggested that I watch Paranormal Activity 2, I realised I could not remember one thing about the film. And so, after quite liking the first one, and having recently seen and not hated the third instalment, I decided to watch it (again).

    Then, 90 minutes later, I realised that of course I had seen it before. In…

    This is a lot like the first one, but 15 minutes longer, way more boring and with a bigger anticlimax.

    There's a couple creepy scenes, though. And they do manage to make a fairly interesting take on a sequel to a film that clearly was originally never meant to have a sequel.

    nada nuevo muestra esta película como tal, capaz amplia un poco el universo del film... tiene creo que solo 3 escenas que salvan la patria, y me molesta que un personaje simplemente no lo nombren mas... aunque si me gusto como esta interlazada con la 1era y como fuerza a una continuación... y me molesta que traten de forzar si porque algunas respuestas... coño es mas fácil preguntar y ya y no darlas por hecho...

    Chronologically this film is set prior to the first with some flashbacks and overlapping.

    PA2 centres around Katie's sister's family, they too are experiencing phenomena. Tensions rise, and Katie passes on her advice on how to deal with the phenomena, the effects are much the same as the first one as the film-makers intelligently crank the tension and suspense up as we've come to expect. Some peeps aren't fond of this one, but you need to watch it if you follow the series as it adds to the narrative.

    Not as scary as the first. Maybe thats just because the concept isn't new anymore. This was still a good film though and it had its scary moments. The climax was disappointing however and didn't come close to matching the original. I really did like the way they tied the two films together however. Nicely done! (26.10.10)

    They forgot to add a genre...'comedy'.

    This movie was absolutely hilarious; the totally inept timing for the "thrills" just made everything super goofy looking, the furthest thing from frightening. Dozens of girls' shrill screams filling the theater were met with my explosive laughter, it was a wonderful time.

    Except when it actually got serious in the last 20 minutes like every PA movie. That bit was a little creepy, and depending on your look at it, it could be detrimental…
