In our box office poll on Friday, we asked you how much you thought Paranormal Activity 2 would make in its opening weekend. Even though Jackass 3D had set an October record the previous weekend with $50 million, Fandango fans still thought the Paranormal Activity sequel would break even more records with 33% of you predicting the film would gross $50 million or higher in its opening weekend. Though it didn’t exactly get up that high, Paranormal Activity 2 still brought in a very respectable (especially for a non-3D movie) $41 million, making 16% of you voters victorious in your guesses.
Which Paranormal Activity Movie Scared You the Most?customer surveys
Paranormal Activity, Paranormal Activity 2
I have to agree with Javajive in that both movies had some great haunting and chilling moments, though as usual since the first was fresh and we didn't really know what to expect the first caught me off guard more than the second. Also in the second some of the same aspects of the scary possessions took place so it was somewhat like watching a prequel to PA1. That being said PA2 was well scripted and connected the two movies together fantastically. The addition of the child was also an eerie extra that help make the foundation of why this entity has been following the family from what could be decades, if I remember PA2 correctly that is. A PA3 will more than likely be in the works and would be a welcome addition to tie it all up.
Hmmm. after actually voting, I would have to watch PA2 again, it was late and at the end of the 2 day horror fest we put on every year for Halloween, again, both had their moments.
I still have high hopes that higher Spirit will intervene-like the ghost-Spirit of Micah (due to his untimely death/killed by the possessed demom Katie)...'will go after the demon Katie and set things to rights...'and the babe will be returned. Sounds like there should be a PA-3 Movie next!!! Once again great chilly Cast and frightening storyline.
That is a very interesting take on how to tie up the ending of a trilogy, nice idea.
I think so too. Thanks for your response, directorslean and have a wonderful Holiday weekend.
Both films PA and PA2 equally has a chill-frightening effect on one senses: the 1st one has a haunting-mystery foundation whereas the 2nd one builds up from it and connects in a very clever frightening way. Although the first PARANORMAL Activity is a personal fav I also liked alot PA2 both have creepy-chilly haunt storylines and both eagerly powerful Horror-Ghost films. I the PA Casting in both movie films are incrediable (the newborn & toddler that played Hunter are treasures!) as for the Adult lead Stars Katie (frightening!!!) & Micah (appear in both films...'still heart crushed that the demon Katie wiped him out) and Kristie (Katie's sister) & her husband and baby boy & daughter along with Maid are being haunted on. Clever scripting!
