The Activity Begins Again

 

3 out of 4 stars

 

Serving as a prequel to the original, Paranormal Activity 2has been one of the year’s highly anticipated films.

Fans of the first film will not be disappointed as Paranormal Activity 2elaborates on the original while introducing new characters. The movie begins 60 days before the death of Micah Sloat, who was killed in the original. Kristi (sister of Katie

Featherston from Paranormal Activity) comes home on Aug. 7, 2006, with her newborn son, Hunter, and her husband Daniel. After what seems to be a break-in, Daniel has cameras installed around the house. Through these cameras and a personal camcorder, the audience is able to witness a series of unusual events, including a levitating baby and cabinets being flung open.

Kristi’s step-daughter, Ali, does her research and finds that all evidence points to a demon in the house. After Kristi becomes possessed by the demon, Martine, the fired house maid, is welcomed back to help chase the evil spirits away. 

The movie offers a more personal setting as a family becomes involved and the experience is captured on home video. Paranormal Activity 2will have the audience on the edge of their seats as they anticipate the moment when something unexpectedly appears on the screen. Paranormal Activity 2is easily the most thrilling movie of 2010.
