Family-Faith Film Review: Paranormal Activity 2
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting,
Paranormal Activity 2: Efficiently unnerving skin-crawler in which a prosperous California couple (Sprague Grayden and Brian Boland) and the husband’s teenage daughter by a previous marriage (Molly Ephraim) try to protect the latest addition to the family, a 1-year-old boy, from the malignant designs of a demon. Using the device of a set of security cameras the parents have installed after an initial incident they take for a break-in by vandals, director Tod Williams extends the franchise that began with 2009’s “Paranormal Activity” by telling a related story that, like its predecessor, avoids gratuitous gore but that also tones down the original’s excess of sexual themes and vulgar language. Occasional intense but stylized violence, a few uses of profanity, some rough and crude language, a handful of mild sexual references. A-III — adults. (R) 2010
