Movie Review: Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)


Paranormal Activity 2 is the type of film that makes watching a movie in a theater a joy in itself. Folks will be scared and shrieks will be aplenty.

The follow up to last year's Paranormal Activity, this film carries the same premise: a family puts up several cameras around their house (a la Big Brother) and the audience sees most of what these cameras pick up. Like a voyeuristic trip, we see eerie movements and unexplained phenomena from the first person point of view.

What I don't like about this film is its over reliance on the first film to make sense, especially the ending. See, this movie is sort of like a prequel/sequel to the previous film, thus making the first movie a required watching.

But over-all, Paranormal Activity 2 is a great Halloween movie for a group of friends.


Rating: 3/5
