    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    So there’s this couple and in the woman’s childhood there was a supernatural event that she’s tried to push out of her life. However, the malevolent entity that threatened her then has come back to threaten her now, and we see the story unfold through all the cameras that they’ve placed around their house. He mocks her fears, but learns the hard way how wrong he is.

    That’s the plot of Paranormal Activity. It’s also the plot…

    Does pack a fright or three, but repeats every single play from its predecessor, and too often trades real suspense for loud noises.

    WTF I actually liked this??????? Everyone said it was shit!!!!!
    Maybe I'm a sucker for story progression... specifically horror story progression... but this was way more entertaining to me than the first one. There's more to look at. There's more happening. It's definitely more tense because there are kids and a cute dog involved.
    This actually makes me excited to watch the rest of them!!!!

    YEAH, I'M WATCHING ALL OF THESE FOR SOME REASON

    This one doesn't even have its predecessor's novelty going for it, so it feels like the "spend thousands to make millions" barely-a-movie it is. Far too much of its run-time is a sit and wait game that culminates in nothing interesting happening (and the presence of more cameras in the house, while it ought to give the movie more tools to work with, just takes away the need to do a lot with a little that led to the first one's strongest moments). I sure hope the rest of them aren't this bad.

    ★★★½

    Both a prequel and a sequel to the previous Paranormal Activity film, this time we follow Katie's sister Kristi and her new family as they also suffer supernatural events and attacks and attempt to both discover what is behind them and try to stop them.

    As it's a sequel, PA2 has to manage to lift the bar from the previous film, while also not going too far away from the formula that made the first film so successful, and for…

    Se passando antes dos acontecimentos do primeiro filme, o segundo capítulo da franquia aumentou o orçamento, a qualidade da produção, a quantidade de pessoas envolvidas e a quantidade de câmeras utilizadas na história, e consequentemente a quantidade de sustos! Novamente a obra aposta no medo gerado pela expectativa mais do que no susto em si. A direção, a edição e a montagem carregam o estilo da franquia e entregam uma grande "sequência" focada no suspense e na tensão e a…

    ★★★½

    A superior and scarier sequel (prequel actually) that serves best as an example of what the first movie should have been but wasn't, given that, contrary to the silly sheet tricks of that one, we're offered this time a more interesting development of the paranormal activity.

    Creepy, but the suspense doesn't build as well as in the first film. Here you have to sit through almost half the movie before things really start to heat up.

    Somehow the animals and the babies and the minorities are always the first to know

    Even though I make mention of the Paranormal Activity franchise as a whole, I've only ever watched the first one. And while it was maybe 30 minutes too long, I liked it! It's not a movie I would rave about, but it's enjoyable enough to watch once. But if I've only seen the first one, how can I say that the Paranormal Activity movies are a bunch of shitty cash grabs made to milk money out of retards? Simple, cause…

    A family experience paranormal avtivities after a break-in in their house..

    The events in Paranormal Activity 2 takes place before Katie and Micah's terrifying experiences and it's Katie's sister and her family that's the target this time and I guess it runs in the family because the Rey family also likes to film everything. This time there's more characters involved though; there's the couple with a daughter, a baby, a dog and a nanny and then there's Katie and Micah…
