    Paranormal Activity 2 is a horror film that fails to scare its audience and succeeds in boring them to death instead, with wooden acting, characters and situations you're indifferent to, hardly any effective moments, and brutally sluggish pacing.

    Not as good as 1 but still a pretty good sequel. It's gone down for me a little in score since I last saw it. The scares don't hold up quite as well as the first movie or even part 3. I do really like that it's pretty much a prequel, sequel, and parallel storyline to the first. Which is a great way of furthering the storyline.

    I saw the 1st and 3rd of the series a while ago, and found enough that at least intrigued about the latter to want to catch up with this one. Turns out to be a virtual catalog of all the limitations inherent in the visual and narrative formula these movies follow, only getting slightly eventful in the last 15 minutes. But it also pretty much lost me right off the bat, when the new mom comes home and goes on…

    Paranormal Activity 2

    Not near as revolutionary as the first film, Paranormal Activity 2 actually does a great job bringing the suspense and the scares, with a newer type of filming. Of course, it's flawed, but it's actually a really surprising quality horror movie, perfect for late nights when things may go bump in the night.

    Film # 18 of Hoop-Tober 2.0

    You know, I'm a really big fan of the first installment of this series. For me, Paranormal Activity is the definition of horror. It is shocking, horrifying and absolutely terrifying. And although its successor is by no means as good as this movie, it's still worth a watch. I don't care if there isn't any story or some big character depiction. When I'm watching a movie like this, I want to be scared. And…

    It was interesting seeing the continuation of the story, but I was bored for much of it. The single camera in the first film worked to its advantage. We could only see the one view and our imagination would build the rest.

    They chose to go for multiple cameras in this sequel that runs parallel to the original. Unfortunately all this does is give you many views of nothing at all for at least the first half of this movie.…

    This film I color as better than the first one because it seriously improves on all the problems I had with the first film. First of all the pacing on the second installment is so much better and it moves perfectly and keeps itself interesting the whole time that it is on. Granted not going to lie I watched the extended cut of this film and it kinda adds too many unnecessary scenes that really don't add to much to…

    Horrorthon 2015 - Movie #8

    They just get gradually worse and worse, don't they. My second outing into the Paranormal Activity franchise lacked most of what made the original cool - I didn't care about the characters, was formulaic (a problem both this and the next installment suffers from) and bored me at multiple times throughout. The only good thing about the second Paranormal Activity is that it did develop the lore of the series, and I found that rather interesting.

    Hoop-Tober 2.O Film #17

    As with most sequels, Paranormal Activity 2 tries to up the ante. Instead of one camera, we now have seven! Part of the success of the original was due to its laser focus; sure, you had a few handheld sequences, but the movie was built on and around the static camera shot of a bedroom and a hall beyond. That was it. All of the handheld stuff lead up to those nighttime shots. With six stationary…

    Set before & after the events of the first film, the second chapter in the Paranormal Activity series is a parallel sequel that follows a suburban family which decides to install numerous security camera in their home, following what appears to be a break-in attempt, but soon discovers that the events unfolding in their residence are far more sinister than it seems.

    Directed by Tod Williams, Paranormal Activity 2 is virtually the same as Paranormal Activity for it follows the very…
