Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
Movie Review by The Insane Old One

Paranormal Activity 2 (2010) Salutations!

I have to say, I'm one of those people that was fascinated by the first "Paranormal Activity". Whereas it had it's flaws, I thought it took the "cinema veritas" angle and went in a new direction that was at times tedious, at times exciting, but overall a nice new palette for horror filmmakers to work with.

The film saw it's share of imitators (along with some out-and-out shameless rip-offs), but none quite equalled the original.

I approached this sequel with anticipation; whereas I never thought the original was a GREAT film, I was entertained by it, and looked forward to how the creators were going to run with the notion.

This movie had some uniques twists; the inclusion of the child and the dog, and the MUCH more believable closed-circuit home security system to explain how everything was filmed...but overall, to me, it was all a lot of the same. Tying up some loose ends that were left by the first one were nice touches, and I found some of the questions the expanded story raised provacative, but sadly it was flat in the "fright" department, bringing little more to the table than re-heated leftovers.

Don't get me entirely wrong; it's not an unenjoyable watch, and it has it's moments, but other than the points mentioned above, if you've seen the first one, you've seen the best of this one.

Quom no credula posterum, kiddies!
