IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY.
In 1988, young Kristi (Jessica Tyler Brown) finds an invisible friend in her home… and her mother and her boyfriend begin to notice strange occurrences. The filmmakers behind the documentary Catfish (2010) directed this second sequel in the hugely successful horror franchise – but didn’t really add anything new to the concept. This one is a prequel where we get to meet two of the lead characters from the original films, Katie and Kristi, when they were kids. Well-made scares… but we know too well what to expect.
2011-U.S. 84 min. Color. Directed by Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman. Cast: Chloe Csengery (Katie), Jessica Tyler Brown (Kristi), Christopher Nicholas Smith (Dennis), Lauren Bittner, Dustin Ingram, Sprague Grayden.
Trivia: Followed by Paranormal Activity 4 (2012).
