IGN:"Video cameras? Check. Spooky noises? Check. Vague gubbins about demons? Correct and present. Annoying characters with slightly wooden acting? Hello, sir. Yes, 2009's low-budget, hype-tastic horror-phenomenon Paranormal Activity is back, to once again make us stare furiously at a static screen and then freak out at the odd rattle of saucepans.
Happily, Paranormal Activity 2 successfully bucks the sucky sequel trend (and even chucks in some basement-related fun to boot) being just as effective as the original - mainly by being a straight carbon copy of it."
