Frightening and literally insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2 is the perfect flick for fans of scary movies. A sequel to 2011’s Insidious, the film continues the story of a young boy and his family being terrorized by evil ghosts in their home. A standard plot for horror, but both films have their own spins and twists that keep them unique.
Fans of the original and newcomers to the Insidious story will both enjoy, as Chapter 2 works well as a standalone film. Lots of jump scares and evil demons are littered throughout the film. Once again, Patrick Wilson delivers an excellent performance as Josh Lambert, the haunted father of the Lambert family. All the cast give terrifying performances—especially the ghosts—but Wilson definitely steals our attention.
If you (and maybe a date) like being terrorized on the edge of your seat for 90 minutes, you’ll get exactly what you paid for with Chapter 2. Along with The Conjuring, You’re Next, and soon to be many more, Chapter 2 is just one of many new horror flicks to check out leading up to Halloween.
