Production[ edit ] Attempting to focus on believability rather than action and gore, Peli chose to shoot the picture with a home video camera. In deciding on a more raw and stationary format the camera was almost always sitting on a tripod or something else and eliminating the need for a camera crew, a "higher degree of plausibility" was created for the audience as they were "more invested in the story and the characters". Instead, the actors were given outlines of the story and situations to improvise, a technique known as " retroscripting " also used in the making of The Blair Witch Project.
The entire house is trashed except for their infant son Hunter's bedroom. Daniel installs security cameras throughout the house after the vandalism, which capture many strange occurrences.
Martine, the housekeeper and nanny, goes into Hunter's room after hearing a loud bang and senses a demonic presence in his room.
She takes him downstairs and attempts to cleanse the house of " evil spirits ", but when Daniel arrives home and catches her burning sageMartine is fired.
Kristi believes that their home is haunted. Daniel reviews the footage but dismisses her claims. Kristi talks to her sister Katie about being tormented by a demon when they were children. Daniel's daughter, Ali, begins investigating the occurrences and discovers that humans can make deals with demons for wealth or power by forfeiting the soul of their first-born son.
The violence quickly escalates as the family's German ShepherdAbby, is attacked. Daniel and Ali take Abby to the veterinarian and leave Kristi alone with Hunter.
When Kristi checks on the baby, the demon assaults her and drags her to the basement, where she stays for an hour. Finally, the basement door opens and a possessed Kristi walks out.
The following day, Ali finds the basement door covered in scratches and the word meus Latin for "Mine"etched into it. Ali goes upstairs to check on Hunter and sees Kristi there with a strange bite mark on her leg. When Ali tries to get Hunter, Kristi furiously orders her not to touch him.
Now terrified, Ali begs Daniel to come home.
After he arrives, she shows him the footage of Kristi's attack. He immediately calls Martine, who prepares a cross to exorcise the demon and tells them that Kristi will have no memory of being possessed.
Because the curse can only be transferred to a blood relative, Daniel tells Ali that he is going to pass the demon onto Katie, so that Kristi and Hunter will be safe.
Ali begs him not to, but Daniel sees no other way to save his family. That night, when Daniel tries to use the cross on Kristi, she attacks him, and all the house lights go out.
Using the handheld camera's night visionhe finds that Kristi and Hunter have disappeared. Furniture starts to topple over, and the chandeliers begin to shake.
Daniel chases Kristi into the basement, where she attacks him. After he touches her with the cross, she collapses, and the house shakes violently.
Daniel hears demonic growls and screams and finally, the shaking stops. Daniel puts Kristi to bed and burns a photo of a young Katie the same photo that Micah Sloat later finds in the attic of his and Katie's house in the first film.
Three weeks later, Katie visits and explains that strange things have started happening at her house. On October 9, the night after Micah is killeda possessed Katie breaks into Daniel and Kristi's home and kills Daniel by snapping his neck while he watches TV.
She then kills Kristi in Hunter's room and takes the baby. The screen fades to black as Hunter's crying turns into laughter. An epilogue text states that Ali was on a school trip, and she found the bodies of Daniel and Kristi upon her return home and that Katie and Hunter's whereabouts remain unknown.
