Paranormal Activity 2 [2010]


A follow-up to the pseudo documentary thriller about a family that is convinced they have a demon in their house. This time the family is convinced that criminals are breaking in their house and they set up security cameras all over, only to realize that what's been going bump in the night may have a sinister supernatural source. With Katie Featherston. Directed by Kip Williams. [1:31 - R]



thumbs up

"Make no mistake, Eastwood's directorial output, from Mystic River on, constitutes the 21st century's first cinematic marvel, and Hereafter is among the best things he has ever done."

- Mick LaSalle

thumbs down

"The straight-shooting filmmaking style that Eastwood's always had remains his greatest asset, so reconciling that with the mumbo-jumbo in Hereafter is like discovering your no-BS uncle moonlights as a carnival barker."

- Joe Neumaier
