A Long Wait for a Few Good Scares

What to watch out for – Some genuinely scary scenes that catch you unaware in the second half

What not to watch out for – An ineffective and stretched first half.

 

“Paranormal Activity 2”, a prequel to Oren Peli’s “Paranormal Activity” begins a few months before the events in the original. It is a must-watch for those who loved the first installation, as it reveals much more about the terrors of the original. Following in the same low budget, documentary format as the original, it has the same realistic and creepy effect that “The Blair Witch Project” did.

 

Months before Katie and Micah’s haunting took place, Katie’s sister Kristi and her husband Dan moved into a new house, along with their little son and Dan’s daughter from a previous marriage.

 

Kristi, Dan and his daughter arrived home one day to find the entire house ransacked, apparently by burglars, but nothing was stolen. Except a necklace Katie had made for Kristie. Scared by the break-in, they install security cameras all around the house. As expected, the strange happenings begin and threaten to shake the entire family. We watch the terror unfold through the sequence of security cameras as well as Dan’s handy cam.

Unfortunately for those who didn’t find “Paranormal Activity” scary, “Paranormal Activity 2” will only be slightly more thrilling. The first half especially drags along with the same old pots and pans falling, doors opening and closing etc. The same stuff that was used to build tension in the original is used again and with lesser impact. One is actually sitting around waiting for some real action to happen. But when it does, you will be holding on to your seats for sure. The second half could have actually been the entire film and people wouldn’t have missed much.

 

Verdict – If it managed to scare you the first time around, this prequel definitely takes it a notch higher. But if “Paranormal Activity” didn’t manage to grab your attention, stay home this weekend and wait for the DVD instead.
