Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

Updated on December 25, 2012

Paranormal Activity 2 Question

Do You Believe In Ghosts and Demons?

See results

Oh great, another bunch of sleepless nights to look forward to.

For those the read my review for the last "Paranormal Activity", then you'll know how scared I was of that movie. In fact, I couldn't sleep for days after I saw it, as it guaranteed nightmares to anyone brave enough to watch it. Sadly, that wasn't even the scariest film of the franchise, as the sequel was by far scarier. Of course, it didn't help that I was the only person in the theater watching this, as I was completely alone watching "Paranormal Activity 2." Heck, I'm not going to lie to you people, I was just freaking scared. There were times during the movie I had to look over my shoulder because of how scary the movie was. Heck, it gives me the creeps just thinking about it, as I write this review.

Set a few months before the events of the first movie, "Paranormal Activity 2" centers around a newly married couple residing in their new suburban home, with their family that consists of their teenage daughter and their baby boy, Hunter. After what appears to be a break in at their house, the family decides to set up various security cameras around their home, to monitor any suspicious activity. Unfortunately, what they find out through these tapes isn't exactly pleasant, as they soon realize that the events that are transpiring are far more sinister than they seem.

For those that saw the first movie, then you should have a general idea what to expect. Images that seem eerily subtle, to where one could dismiss them logically, around the beginning. Then as the movie reaches closer and closer to it's epic climax is when the images become drastically more frightening. So frightening and realistic, that you'll be scared out of your mind for days. Trust me, you won't sleep for days, after you see how realistically terrifying this movie is.

Heck, what makes the movie even scarier than the previous one are the shadows. That's right, even the shadows move in this sequel, as you'll have to see it to believe it. The way the shadows will subtly move and create a foreshadowing of terror is just spooky, as it will create the perfect tension to send chills down anyone's spine. Plus, it really doesn't help when the cinematography is shot in that same home video style that made the last film so realistic and scary.

Definitely a great horror movie to see if your looking to get scared for this Halloween. Just one word of advice, don't see this film alone like I did. Seriously, if you do, then your going to be scared out of your wits. Trust me, you don't want to see this movie the same way I did, as I barely got any sleep the same night I saw this movie. Therefore, don't make the same mistake I did, and don't see this alone. When I saw the first movie last year, I honestly thought that was the scariest freaking movie I had ever seen. That is....until I saw "Paranormal Activity 2." Guaranteed to haunt and give all it's viewers nightmares, as the shadows and creepiness is so eerily realistic, that you won't believe your eyes. That's why I have to give this movie a perfect four stars out of four. A must see for those looking for frights this Halloween.

      I really enjoyed Paranormal Activity 2. I think that it was definitely creepy and they totally delivered with amped up activity. I personally liked the first one better because it literally kept me awake for days. And when I was finally able to sleep I had to shut the bedroom door. I got no sleep after watching that one.
