Paranormal Activity 2 | Movie review

Rated: PG-13
Genre: Supernatural horror
Running Time: 91 min
Director: Tod Williams
Cast: Sprague Grayden, Molly Ephraim, Brian Boland, Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat

“After experiencing what they think are a series of “break-ins”, a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.” -IMDB

Verdict: I haven’t seen the first one, thus this was quite a new thing to me. It is a little dull in the beginning but it is all to build up a realistic and climatic experience. It offers a couple of decent scares but they are largely contributed by sudden loud sounds. I find the ending extremely disappointing. The whole movie is filmed “camera footage” style (just like ‘Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Cloverfield’) so, if you don’t think you’d enjoy watching a whole movie like watching a video recorded from CCTVs and camcorders, I would suggest you save your time and money. This is definitely not for hardcore slasher film lovers.

Why oh why? (SPOILER BEGINS HERE) Why can’t the demon just possess one of them on one of the earlier nights? Why did the demon carry Hunter off the cradle and then carried him back into it before his parents got home? If the demon could carry the baby like that, why can’t it just take him away? (SPOILER ENDS HERE)

Micah? (SPOILER BEGINS HERE) He is murdered by Katie in the first film. And there you have the parallel connection between the first installment and this one. So basically, this one is a prequel. (SPOILER ENDS HERE)

Rating: 2.5 / 5
