Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

So I didn't remember the "stars" of the original film enough to realize that they are also in the sequel. And that this isn't a sequel but a prequel to the first film. The film is about the month or so leading up to the original film and centers around Katie's sister who is dealing with a demonic presence in their house much like Katie eventually sees.

The film starts with events that make you think the house is possessed, but since the activities start as soon as they bring their first son home we get the feeling these two things are linked. The family is well off, and the stepdaughter seems to do the majority of the investigation in the film. We end with the sense that we really don't know what is going still [you can see part 3 this year].

I loved how this film wrapped around the original, and am excited to see how the next prequel goes. Watching the first film is necessary even through this is a prequel.

Vote: 8/10
