Smiling mannequins, black-dressed brides and a creep singing about tiptoeing through tulips sure caused a lot of people sleepless nights after watching Insidious. Released just in time for Halloween, Insidious: Chapter 2 starts with the cold, dark and eery feeling the first one left off with.
Revolving around the mystery left by the first movie, Insidious: Chapter 2 shows that the Lambert family are still being haunted and that body of Josh Lambert is possessed. After the incidents that took place in their house, The Lambert family moves to stay with Josh’s mom but it’s not long before they realise that they are still being haunted. The movie sees a shocking and slightly unexpected twist to the plot, the tone of Insidious: Chapter 2 was slightly cheesy but still as sensational.
Lose ends left behind from the first movie are tied up as the backstory and history behind the characters are explained in this movie. The coinciding plot made the movie feel like a horror thriller as it keeps you at the edge of you seat with its darkness and out of the blue pop up scare moments. A fast-paced ride through a world that was a left a mystery with the ending of the first movie, Insidious: Chapter 2 is a straight-horror movie that is extremely satisfying.
