Bottom Line: Just as much fun as the first one: some are scared mindless; others are laughing themselves mindless.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 isn’t as good as #1. Nor is it a B-movie. Still, it is very enjoyable, and at this point, some of us are already addicted to the newly-spawned horror saga.
Rather than picking up where the first film left off, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 takes place mostly before the events of #1, with the last few minutes succeeding the first film’s conclusion. Now, the story focuses more on Kristi (Katie’s sister) and her family, which includes a middle-aged husband, teenage step-daughter (who looks only a few years younger than Kristi herself…), baby son, and dog. Periodically, Katie and Micah make visiting appearances, but they are not the main focus, this time around.
