paranormal-activity-2.jpg"Paranormal Activity 2" scored big in its opening day Friday (Oct. 22), drawing almost $20 million worth of fright-seeking fans.

The sequel/prequel to last year's ultra-low-budget hit took in an estimated $19.7 million at the box office Friday, beating estimates and putting it on pace to collect close to $50 million for the weekend. (Friday's take includes $6.3 million in midnight screenings Thursday.)
