Paranormal Activity 2
The last horror film that could be compared to 'Paranormal Activity ' in terms of success, budget and style is 'The Blair Witch Project.' It's a relevant comparison again since the second in the 'Blair Witch' series was an utter disappointment compared to the original.
There are very few reviews out at the moment for 'Paranormal Activity 2' and it's incredibly hard to judge. It's slicker than the original, and doesn't have that surprise factor going for it – you know what you're getting yourself into.
The second in the series does introduce a baby into the picture - which definitely ramps up the scares – and a dog which is almost certainly going to die a horrific death at the hands of some supernatural spirit. If you like being scared, 'Paranormal Activity 2' may be the perfect Halloween flick for you.
Boxing Gym (limited)
'Boxing Gym' isn't a traditional movie, but from the sound of things it's not a traditional documentary either. The film captures the struggles of people from all walks of life as they try to reach their fullest potential inside a boxing gym in Austin, Texas. It's been incredibly well received and makes a great alternative to the scream fest of 'Paranormal Activity 2.'
