31 Days of Halloween

Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

Directed by: Tod Williams
Written by: Michael R. Perry, Christopher B. Landon
Starring: Katie FeatherstonMicah Sloat and Molly Ephraim

The PARANORMAL ACTIVITY series are films you have to allow yourself to get into. Sitting in my darkened living room at midnight with my family asleep upstairs is the perfect setting to watch these. Creating this setting is crucial for the scares in PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 to work. I don’t think I would have been scared seeing this in a theater full of morons.

I’m really surprised that PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 worked as well as it did. It’s a parallel story to the first one, and even hits a lot of the same beats. But, it works and actually enhances the first film’s story. I can’t wait to see PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3!
