Insidious: Chapter 2 Reviews

It's not gory, but relies on ceaseless weirdness with scores of jump scares and even an odd Back To The Future 2-style subplot that's undeveloped yet still adds to the overall sense of crazy. Love or hate it, this is pretty effective modern scare cinema.

The best horror films stay with you, leaving you jumping at the slightest sounds. This is decidedly not that kind of movie.

It's a treat to see old-school film technique and makeup design rather than an overabundance of CGI work.

Wan and Whannell have attempted to do something interesting, but Chapter 2 - AKA Back To The Further - is overly complicated as a result. More repetitive than last time and less grounded.

Insidious: Chapter 2 has a number of issues, chief among them the fact that it recycles far too much of the first film, turning this into a dreadfully dull ghost story with no chills.

At this film's start, young Elise tells young Josh, "I promise, it won't hurt." You know that she knows this can't be so.

Carrying on where the last one left off, horror maestro du jour James Wan (Saw, Dead Silence, The Conjuring) serves up a juicy, fright-filled spookfest with this follow-up to the 2011 hit.

2UE That Movie Show

INSIDIOUS: Chapter Two has a good cache of scares; a necessary injection of mystery and despite small doses of clunky performances and scripting it's a rare, high quality horror sequel.

Trashy and silly and occasionally unintentionally funny, it is nonetheless weirdly compelling.

Most of [Wan's] peers shoot a bunch of scenes and let the editor make a smoothie. Wan no longer relies on visual gibberish. He has become a classicist in that sense.

Clever isn't the same as scary. It's the unexplained, not the over-explained, that tingles the spine.

It relies on cheap thrills and fails to generate consistent suspense, while lacking the sharp sense of humor that kept the first film from bogging down.

Alas, the tension and fright remain mostly invisible in "Insidious: Chapter 2," the disappointing sequel to the terrific "Insidious."

Amps up the scares without breaking any new ground while offering more layers and less gore than most films in this genre.

The movie finds itself haunted by a three-headed beast: incoherence, illogicality and contrivance.

Shadows on the Wall

Wan and Whannell return to their 2011 hit with a vengeance, gleefully filling in the story before, after and even during that first chapter with even more gonzo nuttiness.

Director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell generate some cool scares and clever comic relief from Elise's junior colleagues, but a viewing of the first movie would benefit newbies.

Tedious and repetitive, it concludes with yet another creepy cliffhanger.

A clumsy and muddled follow up to the original; toomany tricks and not enough treats.
