For my birthday a few days ago my husband took me out on a date night for dinner and Insidious: Chapter 2! We both really enjoyed the first Insidious movie and were stoked that the sequel came out right in time for my birthday! Most cool horror flicks come out in time for my husband’s birthday because he was born the day before Halloween. Lucky bastard …
Anyway, the movie really lived up to my expectations! I thought that while it wasn’t quite as scary as the first installment, it was a really super creepy and well-made follow up. It kept with the story line and even added more to the background – a LOT more! I love a story with an actual STORY and not just non-stop gore. This isn’t a gory movie, it’s more of a psychological thriller a’la The Shining. Yes, I absolutely compared the two because there seemed to be a small homage to The Shining within Insidious 2 – not sure if it was on PURPOSE but … well, when you see it let me know!
Here’s the quick synopsis from Wikipedia:
“Insidious: Chapter 2 is a 2013 American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan. It is a sequel to 2011’s Insidious. The film stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne reprising their roles as Josh and Renai Lambert, a husband and wife who seek to uncover the secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. The film was released on September 13, 2013.”
Don’t bother staying through the credits, there are no extras or stingers.
Ps. Anyone who has young kids or has ever owned some of the Fisher-Price brand electronic toys will be cursing them during and after the movie!
