Paranormal Activity 2 is the rare sequel in horror films that manages to provide more scares than the original. Although the film relies on jump scares like the first, the scares are still more than that because it's things that occur in every day life and that is what makes the scares stick around. Also, the film does a decent job of providing characters that we can all get attached to through out the movie. The film also manages to weave the first film into the story perfectly with great story telling! The key factor that makes this film is that the silence truly does kill in this film. It's the silence that keeps us all on edge. Overall, the film gets a recommendation because the film doesn't end for us after the reel stops, it just keeps looping in our heads until we can't sleep. That's up to you if that is a good thing or not though...
