Film: Paranormal Activity 2 Click for more info

Seeing as the first film came out less than a year ago, you'd be forgiven if you thought this was just a money spinning sequel.

And of course, that's exactly what it is. However considering how much I enjoyed the whole experience 11 months ago, I saw no reason to see this as a bad thing, instead deciding to hopefully go back for more of the same stuff I found so excellent the first time around.

I wasn't disappointed. In fact I was in some ways even more entertained, which is pretty ironic considering how absolutely similar the two films are. Once again the rational part of me knew exactly how I was being manipulated and once again the rational part of me was ignored as expertly placed bangs, wallops and (most importantly) silences made me a believer. This was genius stuff.

The best bit about the film was how it was actually a prequel and not a sequel. Nto only are we given a context leading up to the events in the first film, we even get to say hello once again to Katie and Micah, both unaware of what would unfold.

Anyway, I guess my review can be summed up with just that - this is more of the same, so if you liked the first film then you're sure to like this one too. Recommended.
