Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

age 16+

Sequel is slow but scarier than Part 1.

PA 2 is actually the prequel to the Firsr part, it's a lot more intense & scarier than the 1st part. But it's also slow, and takes time for things to proceed.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 15+

The second time

Classic Paranormal Activity stuff.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
