The reviewers that enjoyed the film had called it a good attempt at working within the formula that made the first film good, and they agreed that there was no need to “reinvent the wheel”. They also found that there was a good build-up of the tension, allowing for the film to get more interesting as it went along. The reviewers who didn’t enjoy the film felt that it either wasn’t scary enough, with one reviewer even stating that the cast was trying to sell the “reality” of the film too much, deadening some of the moments that are intended to be scary early on.
It sounds like Paranormal Activity 2 is largely being received just like the first film, with a split in how viewers react to it, but with a high percentage that still come away with a high level of enjoyment. It seems that you really have to be into the genre to come away with good thoughts about the film. Over at Yahoo! Movies, film goers have given the film an overall grad of A- (with 175 rating submitted at the time of publishing). There were quite a few viewers there that felt the film was scary, and even more that thought it was “creepy.” They gave it a higher grade than most of the other websites that have submitted reviews on the film to this point.
It already seems quite clear that the Paranormal Activity 2 movie reviews probably won’t stop the film from ruling the box office this weekend, but that viewers are very interested in learning about the film before they go into theaters. A better approach at this point may be to just risk heading to the theaters if the premise seems good. It seems that most of the viewers that loved the first film have been enjoying the second one, and that viewers that only somewhat enjoyed the first one aren’t enjoying this one as much. Maybe the lesson is to be learned in that fact alone. Paranormal Activity 2 is playing in theaters all across the country this week during its debut.
