Paranormal Activity 2 movie delivered scary scenes but lacked a bit. Paramount Pictures released their new horror/thriller,sequel flick “Paranormal Activity 2” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was ok.

The movie was directed by Tod Williams.

“Paranormal Activity 2” revolved around a family of four: a husband,wife,daughter,and baby boy. They move into a house with a nanny who is apparently into spiritual stuff as well. The movie kind of drags along for about the first 30 minutes,but then things start to happen,causing the nanny to realize there are evil spirits in the house. Read more »
