Greetings my Movie Ghouls!
Insidious was an interesting film. It started promising but then went a little bit crazy. They introduced (in the words of Mrs Movie Geek) a Darth Maul creature. I did agree, everything with the ghosts was done cleverly and gave us a fright. But then they went too far. But they also got the go-ahead on Insidious Chapter 2.
Insidious: Chapter 2
Following straight on from the first film after Patrick Wilson’s character has found his son in the Further. Everything seems normal, apart from if you’ve seen the first one and know it’s not.
Almost a carbon copy of the first, but with added backstory and cross-dressing brides and an interesting serial killer story. Its basically about saving another person from inside The Further.
All the characters return, even those who have passed on. We also get a new psychic who uses lettered dice to ask the dead questions. It doesn’t really do much other than finish the story off from the firsts cliffhanger.
The scares weren’t there, it was basically just loud sound effects and jump scares. To be honest, I can’t think of anything they could have done differently.
For me, it just didn’t live up to the first!
