I preferred this one to the first film, but it still wasn't anything special. The characters were much better and much more likable, but besides that it's largely the same movie. I guess that makes sense considering it's so closely tied to the first one.

If you liked Paranormal Activity, you'll like this. If you didn't, this won't win you over.

This movie is both a prequel and sequel to ‘Paranormal Activity’. “Paranormal Activity 2” stars Katie’s sister, Kristi, and her family. When this movie begins, the events of ‘Paranormal Activity’ have not occurred. The paranormal occurrences are running rampant at Kristi’s house, though. As the movie progresses, an exorcism occurs and the activity seems to subside… Until the end of the movie.

“Paranormal Activity 2” is another well-done found footage film. Found footage films are made of footage that would have been ‘found’ after the events of the movie occurred (for example, reels from security cameras). This film is just as scary as its predecessor, and carries on with the well-formed and interesting plot. The characters are once again likeable yet believable, and respond realistically to different situations. This film also does not use horror movie clichés, and the demon still remains invisible, allowing for the audience to create their own visions of the monster. The scares also do not come at the cost of the plot, as both the fear factor and storyline work cohesively to create an intelligent horror movie.

Due to some mild language, the author of this review recommends “Paranormal Activity 2” for ages fourteen and up. This film is also highly recommended by the author of this review, as it is a clever film filled with good scares and an easy-to-understand plot. However, viewer should be warned, as ‘Paranormal Activity 2’ is a horror film, and therefore may not be suitable for those who do not like to be scared. Due to the demonic plot line of the film, those that are extremely superstitious or religious may not enjoy this movie.

I liked this one much better than the first one. then again, i watched this one late at night, with the lights off.... environment is everything with these films. This one seemed to have a point, a purpose, heck, a plot... and not just be a bunch of silly random hauntings like the first one.

This is exactly like the first movie in this franchise, only not as scary. This is a good story, but not so good execution. I gotta say, only Blair Witch was able to really make the DIY hand held camera style work, can we please put a moratorium on this type of filmmaking?

A cool movie but it wasn't that scary except the ending. They dragged it on for the fisrt 30 minutes, but i really like how htey viewed it from security and hand held cameras. It was a bit confusing, maybe becasue i skipped the first movie. I can't wait to see the second one, it looks amazing (and i will eventually see the second one.)
