I actually liked this a lot. Much scarier than the first. A bit redundant at times, and way slower than the first, but the reason I liked it more was for the simple fact that I was on the edge of my seat near the end, which is the reason I watched it in the first place. I also thought it was well connected to the first film while being completely different story wise.

The story is about a family sets up security cameras when they begin to experience break-ins, but what they discover happening is far more dangerous than they could anticipate. This is the worst horror film of 2010 just a stupid movie with dull Moments.

The 2nd installment of the series was duller than the first one. It felt like a home video than a horror flick. Same tactics were used to move objects and the characters don’t seem fazed during its first shot of the ghost with the pool cleaner. Acting and editing was horrendous and the ending unsatisfying. Paranormal Activity 2 just reminded me of Blair Witch with special effects.

Are you afraid of the dark?
Paramount’s anticipated sequel Paranormal Activity 2 made viewers cry “yes” to that eerie question after breaking several records with its midnight release October 22, raking in $41.5 million, the largest sum for any horror movie with a three day opening and for any R-rated release. However, while the movie had some genuinely frightening moments and was equipped with an interesting storyline, the 91-minute thriller’s slow pace and inadequate climactic follow through left this reviewer feeling unsatisfied.
The dubbed title “sequel” may be a little misleading for the movie. In actuality, the story serves as a preface to the previous Paranormal Activity and the storyline acts as an exposition to the haunting of Micah and Katie, the main characters …

"Paranormal Activity 2" is the supplement to the first film, allowing a greater expansion on plot and characters, though without the same "umf" as the first. The first film had its premise and its ploy (walking around with a camera to film paranormal activity), although in this one, people have the camera at convenient plot points, which do little to actually add the same enticing ploy. The use of security cameras is a unique addition and I enjoyed its usage. However, the kicker for me (which is why this received a 3 as opposed to a 4) was that the plot device of "what happens when you sleep" was rarely used, seeing as how the entire film took place as people were awake (except for very few moments). A good follow-up to the original, nonetheless not as powerful nor as deeply …
