Movie review: Insidious: Chapter 2

Movie review: Insidious: Chapter 2


The one thing that spoilt this James Wan-directed sequel for me was the ending.

Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson), now a dad, is still being hounded by the supernatural, similar to how he was as a kid in 1983.

This time, his son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins) is implicated as well.

An unexplained death and a few incidents later, the souls of both the dead and alive end up being caught in the "Further" (basically the other side).

Now Josh's soul has to go on a mission to solve the mystery of The Dark Bride (Tom Fitzpatrick), a former murderer and the source of Lambert's supernatural disturbances.

Josh also has to travel back in time to seek help from himself in 1983.

Confused? This is when the movie becomes a bad combination of Harry Potter and Paranormal Activity.

It almost seemed like Wan got too lost in explaining every bit of the ending. There's a cliffhanger though, so I guess we have to look out for Chapter 3?
