Rotten: Paranormal Activity 2 is better made and not quite as paper thin as the original, but by replicating the bare-bones B-film, the sequel sacrifices any chance for distinction.

This movie has some really big shoes to fill. I highly doubted this would be as scary as the original. To be honest, I thought this movie would flat out suck. Did it? No, I kinda liked it. It's a prequel and as soon as I heard it would focus on Katie and the demon, I thought "Whoa, that's cool, a horror movie that's driven by character, that sounds great." It kind of worked. This movie focuses more on Katie's sister and her family being terrorized. (Apparently Katie's genetics are possessed or something like that, some weird demon gene.) Just like the first film it takes a while for things to start happening. At first things happen that suggest the house was robbed, so the husband installs security cameras. The latino housekeeper, however suggest it is a ghost. (It wants more lemon pledge.) More stuff happens and the creep factor starts to set in. Some scary stuff happens, some new and some recycled from the first film, just with some polishing added to it. There wasn't as much focus on the characters as I would've wanted so that dissappointed me. Another thing is the special effects were updated and that suggested that the director wanted more things to happen that wouldn't scare the audience because you can't really imagine it happening to you. Though there are some good scares though. The characters weren't generic though and that's a good thing. I liked the characters and I wanted them to make it out of this thing alive.It had the same intrigue the first film had so that was a big positive. The end ends up being more of a cliffhanger this time around, even if it is just a prequel, but it is very good build-up all around. Overall, good cast, good scares, great intrique, but it seemed to be missing the pyschological tension the first film had. Nonetheless, I still liked this movie and it delivered some fine scares.
