It is not deep, but it is fun to watch. It does have a bit more of an edge to it than other similar films.

The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.

Insidious Chapter 2 (2013) is not to the quality level of the first movie. I'll just start out by saying that, because it's true that the first is stronger, but that doesn't mean that this sequel isn't still good. This sequel picks up exactly where the first one left off. So make sure and watch the first one first. So if you've seen the first one, then you'll know that the first one ends with the death of Lin Shaye's character, death by Patrick Wilsons character. We don't know how it's possible that this could happen, everything seemed completely fine and then he strangles her to death after she takes his picture for some unknown reason. This movie is all about finding out why he did such a horrible thing and the backstory that goes into all that. The reasoning and backstory is all very interesting and that's what will keep the audiences attention throughout. I loved the acting in this movie, all the previous actors reprise their roles here and they all do well, just as they did previously. The writing isn't quite as solid as the first movie, but the places where the writing in this one gets good is when everything is being explained. Why Patrick Wilsons character, josh, seems almost possessed and how exactly all that happened. There are several scenes that are genuinely scary and will very likely frighten just about anyone, so horror fans will not be disappointed. Overall, this is an entertaining scary installment in the insidious movie franchise. 7/10 for Insidious Chapter 2.

I'm always afraid when I see a sequel to a movie that made success in the box office. Usually it never lends itself to anything. In this case, however, I think I make an exception. Despite not having even half the strength, impact and suspense of the first film, "Insidious 2" is far from a lost case. It maintains the cast, environment and history of the first film, to which he is umbilically linked, following up on his story and creating a kind of temporal paradox. I believe that this paradox, in which certain characters advance and recede in time, is an element that must have made a lot of confusion for some people, but I dealt well with it and even found it interesting. I think it fits the story well. In fact, the way both films intertwine is truly intelligent. Unfortunately, it ends up being a problem for those who did not see the first movie, because it does not understand part of what are watching. I did not really enjoy the way some characters tried to make humour and introduce some comic flashes in the movie. It is not a necessary feature, since this film does not have the tension and density that the first film had to spare. Concerning the performance of the actors there is little to add. What was said for the first film is for this one. So, we can say that this film is a sequel that does honor to the first film and that was cleverly developed, although without the impact achieved in the initial film.

I watched this film on Netflix because I was looking for something to distract me while spinning on my indoor bike - unfortunately, the movie was neither interesting nor entertaining enough to do so. Pretty much all of the standard tropes showed up: creepy boys dressed up as creepy girls, murderous psycho-mothers, murderous possessed dads (including scenes that looked like discards from "The Shining"), bumbling para- normal investigators, spooky abandoned hospitals, and lots of murky misty shots of the 'other side'. The last was likely a wise move, considering how ridiculous the chief spook looked (and acted) when fully illuminated. The first "Insidious" was reasonably well done and had some memorable moments. This sequel adds nothing to the story and either lacks, or repeats, whatever made the first one worth watching. The last scene seems to set up a franchise revolving around two bumbling ghost busters and their associate 'on the other side'. I'll never know because I won't be watching '3'.
