What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry More para, less normal needed
Jurg Slabbert 'Gogga' maak baba net effens skrik in no.2
John P. McCarthy Horror sequel is a qualified success.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Neil Karassik The best way to sum up this year’s cash-in on last year’s sleeper hit is this: if you enjoyed it the first time around, you’ll probably dig it all over again. But if you found the original to be an artless exercise in lo-fi shock tactics, this rehash won’t win you over.
C. Fuchs If you loved the first offering, you'll probably react similarly to this one. If not, you'll just see this as more of the same.
Tomatometer Paranormal Activity 2 doesn't cover any new ground, but its premise is still scary -- and in some respects, it's a better film than the original.
