Movie Review: Paranormal Activity 2

Obviously, this is a sequel. After all, what would a true horror film be without at least one sequel? Part of what is quite terrifying about Paranormal Activity 2 is that it brings its frights gradually. It felt as though for at least the first half hour, just about nothing happened (besides an odd "break in"). In keeping with the classic horror film style, only about two of the characters choose to believe in what's happening until disaster strikes... then the remaining ones jump on board. In the end, the flick had us screaming (mostly because we were terrified for the baby), and it had an excellent tie-in with Paranormal Activity. Let's just hope they don't make a third and instead come up with something fresh.
Best fright: When the daughter gets locked out of the house while babysitting.
