Absolute garbage!
18 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to love horror movies. I've decided they are basically extinct and have been for a long time. Insidious 1 was decent and I made it through the entire movie because I was engaged with the story more so than the cheesy cheap scares(that we've all seen a million times and are actually exhausting to watch). With that being said, I just rented #2 tonight and turned it off half way through. What absolute garbage --- exhausting. I am done with Hollywood junk..DONE DONE DONE! I wish I could get my 1 buck back. The acting was awful. The scares were not scary but super cheesy. The story, boring and they just tell it to you. Urgh. Don't even waste your time!
