The first one built up suspense by making me wonder if something was going to come out of the darkness. This one just has boatloads of cheap LOUD NOISE scares (I can walk up behind you and scream in your ear and you'll jump but that's not being scary, it's just startling someone) and, except for the level of suspense, this one is so much like the original that it makes the Friday The 13th sequels look different and inspired.

And for those that have seen it, was there a section of the movie, beginning with the dog attack, where everything that moves 'jitters' onscreen? It started at that one specific point where things started to get really crazy so I figured it was supposed to be like the ghosts were effecting the cameras too but it kept going and going. I could hear people whispering "Is it supposed to be like this?" and I wasn't entirely sure myself.

The jitters were there when I watched the movie.  What I didn't understand is how this "spirit" could make so much noise to where at one point it woke up the teenage girl yet it didn't wake her parents.  A few nights later you had the same noise that woke all three people up.  It seemed like the movie was just put together in patches and there wasn't any real connection to anything going on.  Another thing that got under my skin is that all of this mysterious stuff is happening and they only go to the recorder a few times to see what has happened.

Nothing really seemed to add up in terms of what was going on.  One second it was perhaps selling the kid to Satan.  One second there were evil spirits.  Another time it might have been a possession.  I'm a little confused on how the mom got dragged through the air and down the steps if it was she the whole time who was possessed.

Perhaps I'm crazy but I remember watching PA and remembering it being downright freezing in the theater.  I know the coldness is something that many people say you will feel when you encounter real events like what's in the film.  The theater also had PA2 freezing this afternoon so I was wondering if perhaps the studio is making theater owners turn down the climate.  I was curious if anyone else was freezing during the movie.  After it was over I slipped into another movie just to see if every theater was cold but that wasn't the case.

I don't think either of the sisters were possessed until after they were dragged and bitten.
