Ruined the Horror of the First One

By jparkerson2
Written November 09, 2010
The first Paranormal Activity terrified my girlfriend and I so much that we slept with the lights on for months (not exaggerating). We went to see this one, terrified, expecting similar horrors afterward. This movie put so many holes in the plot of the first one that the it no longer seems scary. If you really enjoyed the first and enjoyed the fear, either skip this one completely or do your best to not think about how stupid it makes the first movie seem. Now, when I think about Paranormal Activity 1, all I can think about is how their reactions didn't make any sense considering that they would've already known a little of what was going on. Plus, who gets a home surveillance system and only watches the video for one camera when something happens? Overall, too many holes...

Waste of time and money

For most of this movie, nothing happens. Really...nothing. You are basically watching someone's lame home movies and security camera footage. It seems endless.....waiting for SOMETHING, ANYTHING to happen. Finally something happens and it isn't that scarey and it lasts for about 5 minutes. I wish I could get a refund. The movie is just irritating. I wanted to stand outside of the theatre with a sign warning others to not waste their money. Total boring rip off. Don't go!

This one was better than the first! I'll admit I was a bit of a skeptic at first. But this one absolutely terrified me. I felt sick to my stomach from the fear. I was left with an adrenaline rush at the end. No other movie has come close to that. Even better if you go with good audience.

My, oh my, did I love this film! (Our whole group adored it.) It scared my boyfriend so bad that he had issues driving home that night! I liked this movie a lot. It was terrifying - way more terrifying and thrilling than the first movie by far (although they DID wrap the first movie with this one, so, everyone, these two films connect very nicely!). The acting was grand (especially the nanny's and the daughter's. They were great). They directed it perfectly to make the suspense just right. I'd say anyone who doesn't wet themselves at the thought of a ghost should see this! It was great. If you like scary movies, you'll like this! I am definitely going to buy this film when it comes out and probably see it again in theaters!

I really preferred the first one

This movie was way too "hollywood" in my opinion and didn't do anything differently or better than the first. None of the characters were remotely likeable. The explanation of how Katie and Michah get screwed in this is so quick, you'd almost miss it. The best part was at the end when the annoying family members are offed in revenge. I should have waited for it on DVD. None of the magic of the first movie.
