Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
Critic Consensus: Paranormal Activity 2 doesn't cover any new ground, but its premise is still scary -- and in some respects, it's a better film than the original.
Spooky hauntings are once again the main course in this Paramount Pictures follow-up to Oren Peli's wildly successful supernatural thriller Paranormal Activity. Tod Williams directs from a script by Michael R. Perry.

Critic Reviews for Paranormal Activity 2
Like Oren Peli, who created the first film, director Tod Williams keeps the dialogue So-Cal dumb and colorless, which must be part of the scare plan but makes both these movies hard to sit through.
Earns some really nice chills, especially once we hit the big finale.
This demon is more like a lousy roommate, turning the lights on, leaving the cabinets open and making loud noises in the kitchen while everybody's trying to sleep.
Paranormal Activity 2 is surprisingly boring, not scary and lazily made. This is hands down one of the worst horror movies that I've ever seen.
Audience Reviews for Paranormal Activity 2
A superior and scarier sequel - prequel actually - that serves best as an example of what the first film should have been but wasn't, given that, contrary to the silly sheet tricks of that one, we're offered this time a more interesting development of the paranormal activity.
The second movie, with better camera, budget, and story moves away from its primal roots while still managing to deliver scares greater than the first.
Longer and more complex, but not as scary as the first film, relying too much on the same tricks that just aren't as effective this time around.
