Review: Insidious: Chapter 2 takes you deeper into the further

Another positive review of Insidious Chapter 2 (from someone whose opinion we trust). We’re looking forward to seeing it this weekend. Okay, Mrs. Horror Boom is looking forward to it, Mr HB not so much… but both of us saw Insidious in the theater, so neither of us will be lost. Can’t wait to see ‘The Bride In Black’ again (if that’s what they’re calling the creepy old woman in black with the candle from the original, who–here’s some trivia for you–was actually played by a man, possibly because they couldn’t find a woman scary and ugly enough; see our featured image above), though mid-movie, we might be regretting that statement. Dig into this review from Rhino’s Horror!

James Wan’s Insidious: Chapter 2 may have been a somewhat forced sequel after the major success of the first film, but Wan does everything in his power to make it one that not only holds up to the original, but takes you deeper into the further in a strange as hell ride. Wan has stated that this will mark his last film in the genre as he moves on to newer and exciting things so it’s no surprise that he really wanted to leave behind a wickedly weird and entertaining flick that is riddled with enough scares to make Insidious: Chapter 2 an absolute blast. The sequel picks up right where the original left off as the haunted Lambert family seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.

Whoo-hooo!

OK, straight up: I’m not sure how they’re going to explain away the fact that the first Insidious ended (Er, SPOILER ALERT FOR INSIDIOUS (2011)!!!! with Patrick Wilson‘s possessed character strangling Lin Shaye‘s character to death, after which it is established the (fucking terrifying) old woman in black finally got her hands on and her spirit into him – just NO RETCON, PLEASE, JAMES WON! That was one of the most awesome, chilling, clever endings I’ve seen in a long time. The icing on the cake was the smash cut to the title credit — when a horror movie does that BOOM! I’m OUT! drop-the-mic style ending, which was/is master of horror John Carpenter‘s trademark, picked up later by other horror directors who are clearly horror fans (example: Sam Raimi). This here horror fan has been known to spontaneously shout, “YEAH!” and burst into applause seeing a horror movie in the theater that ends this way, not caring whether or not the rest of the crowd joins in or not (as Mr. Horror Boom slumps down in his seat). OK, anyway, I’d buy it explained away as a dream. Lin Shaye is shown in the cast on the IMDB page, maybe CPR brings her back… oh hell, for now I’ll trust Wan. “Specs” and his partner are in the trailer –and the cast list on the IMDB page–too. Enough of my yakking, take a look at the trailer for Insidious Chapter 2 theatrical trailer above!
