Insidious 2 Movie Review

Picking up the pieces of the first movie in the series, in Insidious 2, we find that something has followed Josh (Patrick Wilson) from The Further. The film sort of jumps around from the time Josh was a boy, to the events of the first Insidious film, to the present day. The original cast returns here, and the main players (Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey) all do a fantastic job once again. The scares in this film, remarkably, as just as terrifying as in the first.

One of the creeps

Of course this film does have the same drawbacks of the first (weak acting from the kids and Lin Shaye) but once again, the viewer can easily get past this. The story is advanced nicely in this film, it has a very tense build to a wonderful ending, and once again the director and writer (Wan and Whannell) manage to make a genuinely scary film without clichés, gore and blood--and it does all this while maintaining a PG-13 rating. It is a rare occasion that a sequel can live up to an original if the first film is a good one--Insidious 2 does just that.
