Paranormal Activity 2- Twice as Spooky?
The first installment of ‘Paranormal Activity’ drew you in but selling you that it was real. Just like the Blair Witch film before it, ‘Paranormal Activity’ needed an audience to believe that this was a true story that could happen to you. And it worked. The POV filming was gritty and the editing led toward this being a home movie. But now that we all know the movie was just that, a movie with actors, and a director, and a script, what’s the point of a sequel. The fear that this was real is gone. Now its just a B-horror film like the thousands of others released annually. That does not, however, mean that the film is bad. ‘Paranormal Activity 2’ kept my interest and continued the story we were told of the young couple living in a possessed home. The cast is kept small and intimate and it doesn’t appear they had a larger budget on this one. All in all, wait for the dvd and buy both as a combo at your local Best Buy when they’re on sale.
