Even though Halloween is nearly upon us, October has been fairly light on horror movies so far. That changes with this week's release of the highly anticipated 'Paranormal Activity' sequel and next week's release of 'Saw 3D.'

New and Noteworthy: 'Paranormal Activity 2'

Starring: Katie Featherston
Directed by: Tod Williams
What It's About: Plot details for this prequel to last year's faux-documentary horror hit 'Paranormal Activity' have been largely kept under wraps, but we know that Featherston is back as Katie, and that the plot centers around a family that gets more than it bargained for when its members set up security cameras to capture the mysterious intrusions and disturbances in their house.
Why Should You See It? The same team that made the first film is back, including writer/producer Oren Peli, so the original movie's effective, less-is-more scare machinery should be intact.
