Did You Know?

Trivia:
As with the first film, Paramount Studios utilized world-renowned paranormal expert, Christopher Chacon, to assist in internationally promoting and publicizing the film.

Goofs:
Continuity: When Ali is alone at the house babysitting Hunter, she hears a knock at the door and goes outside to investigate then the door slams behind her. The view we get from the CCTV Camera clearly has the time in the bottom right hand corner. But when Ali shows the CCTV tape back to Dan there is no time in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Quotes:
[first lines]
Kristi Rey: Welcome home, Hunter, this is your house. Gonna look out that window. There's your front door.



User Review

Will you like it? The answer is, "it depends".

Rating: 6/10

When looking through reviews on this site I've noticed that it seems most people who weren't impressed with the first one like the second one more and those who absolutely loved the first movie were somewhat disappointed with the second.

I think this is because the first one had more build-up and a slower pace that gradually came to it's climax. The second one instead went from harmless innocent events and not much happening to BOOM - death! So I think it has to do with the person's patience and preferences as to which style they prefer. Personally, I prefer PA1's style and think it allows the dread to intensify as it grows and grows with each scene.
