After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
Daniel Rey along with his wife, Kristi; daughter, Ali; toddler son, Hunter, and their dog, move to Carlsbad, California. A few days later their residence is broken into, however, nothing appears to be missing. In order to prevent re-occurrences, they install a number of security cameras that will record everything on a DVR. After they hire a Spanish-speaking nanny to look after Hunter, she informs them that there is something wrong in their house and performs prayers, much to the chagrin of Daniel, who lets her go. He will subsequently regret this decision as more inexplicable and strange incidents occur, with Ali concluding, after a research, that their house may be possessed by a demonic entity. Written by
(at around 1h 16 mins) During the climax, immediately following when the power goes out in the house, there is a single, out of focus, frame of Hunter crawling in the street that quickly flashes on and off screen. See more »
(at around 44 mins) 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.

This second installment of the Paranormal Activity series actually (for the most part) precedes the events that happen in the first movie by about two months. It's only towards the end of the movie that the two intermingle with each other.
Here we are introduced to Kristi, Katie's younger sister, and her husband Daniel along with their daughter Ali Rey and new son Hunter. It doesn't take long before strange events start happening around their house, and as the events start to intensify, we find out more about Katie & Kristi's experiences of what happened to them when they were children. That, and along with the frights and more intense scenes, is what makes this installment a bit better than the first for me - we start getting a bit more of a back story on what is happening (and has happened) to the two siblings. While the first film briefly touches on the background story of Katie & Kristi, it still leaves more questions than answers. This film, however, starts to fill in those answers.
While this is not a fantastic movie, it's still a good, creepy movie to watch and the way this one ties in with the first makes it that little bit better.
