Oren Peli must be mortified that this movie "follows" his sleeper hit, the original Paranormal Activity. I have seen each of the following films - in theaters, I must add. After PA 4 (the worst one until this one), I had little to no expectations for this movie. Somehow, I was still disappointed. This movie takes everything that made the humble Paranormal Activity good and does the polar opposite, such as replacing the long, tense silences with synthy sound effects of the physical evidence of Toby moving around the frame. Too much is shown and too little explained. And really? 3D? I left the theater only thinking that there could be another one, and that fact alone is scarier than anything in the movie.
