Insidious Chapter 2: Directed by James Wan. With Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, Lin Shaye. The Lamberts believe that they have defeated the spirits that have haunted their family, but they soon discover that evil is not beaten so easily.

“When you are making a horror movie it always helps to have a few things around in the movie in order to help set the mood. Things like creaky old doors, a piano, and preferably an old and creepy looking house. Now these are not absolutes, but they can help for sure. Horror movies are not like other movies, because there are so many possibilities for sequels, just look at the u0026quot;Friday the 13thu0026quot; series. In 2011 James Wan and Leigh Whannell brought us u0026quot;Insidiousu0026quot;, a story about a family that had unwelcome visitors in their house. The supernatural kind. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat family, the Lamberts, have gotten away from their house and the experience they had in it. Josh (Patrick Wilson), Renai (Rose Byrne), and their three children are all safe and move in with Joshu0026#39;s mom. At the beginning of the film you find out this is not Joshu0026#39;s fist experience with a sprit. It seems Josh has a gift where he sees dead people and with the help from Elise (Lin Shaye) he forgets that gift, until he uses it again to save his son from a place the living shouldnu0026#39;t be. That place I imagine is the same place Carol Anne from u0026quot;Poltergeistu0026quot; was in as well, but instead of talking through a TV, a tin can phone is used to communicate to the other side. Renai senses something is not right about Josh, a sentiment that is shared by Joshu0026#39;s mother as well. So with the help from a man named Carl (Steve Coulter) and two guys who provide the comic relief, they all set out to free Josh and his family from the evil that haunts them. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story picks up exactly where the first film ended, which makes the chapter 2 a perfect title. There are so many more possible chapters to this story, because letu0026#39;s face it there are a lot of ghosts out there. u0026quot;Insidious: Chapter 2u0026quot; is part ghost story and part detective story, as we try to unravel what is following the Lamberts around. Lucky, unlike what he did with u0026quot;Sawu0026quot; we are still under the direction of James Wan and he keeps us on the same path as the first film. If you are going for jump out of your seat frights, then this is not the film for you. There are some moments that may make you jump a little, thanks to some good camera work, but this movie is more like u0026quot;Sevenu0026quot; than say, u0026quot;The Conjuringu0026quot;. In a genre that seems to be getting everything right at the moment, u0026quot;Insidious: Chapter 2u0026quot; doesnu0026#39;t disappoint. The only thing that could improve, is to have a little less common sense moments, you know those moments where a character does the thing everyone knows they shouldnu0026#39;t. I think it is very fitting to release this film on Friday the 13th, because like that franchise, you hope this one also has a long life making us afraid to sleep with the lights off.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBrian Taylor u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ehttp://the2cinemen.blogspot.com/”
