Ethan A. Brosowsky,
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 22 mins) When Martine runs from the kitchen to get Hunter, we see a cutting board with knives and some cut vegetables on the kitchen island. When she's walking around the kitchen with her smoking smudge stick, the cutting board and it's contents are gone. Then she leaves the kitchen with the smudge stick and goes to the foyer. Then the owners come home. When the camera angle switches back to where the kitchen is in the background, the cutting board is there again. As they all walk further into the house and the kitchen, the cutting board is still there in plain view. See more »

There is a three minute long deleted scene where the power goes out and Hunter disappears from the house, but is found crawling outside the house on the street. The family leaves in a hurry for the rest of the night; the final shots of the scene show the house the next morning, unoccupied and in complete disarray. In the kitchen, the pans are still moving.

A lot like the original, just not as good. Felt like they made a sequel/prequel just to make more money. I say B-
After coming home and seeing their house vandalized the Rey family installs security cameras to catch burglars. The cameras pick up much more then that. If you have seen the first one you will know what to expect as far as the camera work and basic feel. I did not realize going in that this was a prequel, in a way. If you have seen the first one you will understand more of the aspects of the movie. It's not really an easy movie to review. The original scared the crap out of me, and I was tense all through this one too, not because it was really scary on its own, but more of a hangover from the first one. The original was a better movie overall and this one felt forced, but it is still very much worth watching if you liked the first one. It didn't scare me nearly as much as the first one, but I really liked the way they tied the two movies together. Not really sure they need a 3rd one, but they are making one anyway. I guess horror directors and studios just don't know when to stop. I give it a B-.
Would I watch it again? - I think I would, after re-watching the first one to see stuff I may have missed
