Movie Review: Paranormal Activity 2


I saw Paranormal Activity (the first one) about a month ago when my bother-in-law visited with the movie in hand.  Let me just say . . . I scare easily and till today, I still get a creepy feeling when I have to get up at night and the clock-radio says 3am!  When I tell people I was too scared to let my foot stick out under the duvet, they just laugh at me! 

So I wasn’t too keen when BIL showed up this afternoon with the second movie. 

I am glad to say that I enjoyed it much more (maybe because it was still light outside?).  This second movie has much more story than the first one.  The first movie used scare tactics to get their point across while the PA2 has much more story.  The scary stuff built slowly, up till the last thirty minutes when all heck broke loose . . . let’s just say I didn’t see the end coming.


This movie is mostly a prequel to the first Paranormal Activity and then towards the end it runs parallel to the first.  It was also fun when the actors of the first movie made appearances and became part of the storyline.  I don’t want to give too much away because then I will just spoil it for you but I would suggest that you watch these two movies in sequence.  How about you just take a look at the trailer below?

I recommend this movie for some mindless fun :)



  1. Paranormal Activity really got under my skin! The second has much more of a 'movie' feel about it (bigger budget, I guess) and didn't creep me out as much, but I thought it was good - and I loved the ending!

  2. The first one scared the crap out of me. No thanks!

  3. I saw the first one and was iffy about seeing this one. I like horror movies! But something about it just kept putting me off. But I think i'll go rent it now.


Thank you for saying hello.
