Paranormal Activity 2: Review

The highly anticipated sequel to last year's scariest movie opens today!!! And... it's just okay. The formula and scenes were repeated too closely, and the movie felt like a flat retread. The first hour was unbearably dull and a missed opportunity for actual storytelling (18 scenes of a pool cleaner, really?). I expected something more ingenious and crafty. There were a few very good scares, and I liked the slow unveiling of Katie's backstory (I'm guessing the inevitable part 3 will head into exorcism territory). But unfortunately, it all sounds so much better on paper than it did on the screen.
