Inferior to the First "Insidious"
22 December 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After the death of Elise, Renai (Rose Byrne) is interrogated by a police detective about the supernatural events in the house. While the police investigate the house, the Lambert family temporarily moves to the old house of Lorraine Lambert (Barbara Hershey). Renai is haunted by a woman in white and Josh (Patrick Wilson) has a strange behavior at home. Meanwhile Lorraine seeks out Elise's partners Specs (Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) expecting to find answers and who killed Elise, and they summon the medium Carl (Steve Coulter) to contact Elise using his dices. The name of the hospital where Lorraine worked appears and they go to the place that is abandoned. They walk to a room that was the ICU and Lorraine recalls an incident with the terminal patient Parker Crane (Tom Fitzpatrick) that committed suicide in the hospital. They find his address, and discloses that the hideous serial- killer "The Bride in Black" was Parker indeed. Further, Lorraine believes that her son Josh is trapped in the Further and Parker has possessed his body. Carl, Specs and Tucker go to Lorraine's house and find that Lorraine's assumption is correct. How can they bring Josh back to his body?

"Insidious: Chapter 2" is a good horror movie but inferior to the first "Insidious". I am a big fan of "Insidious" that is my favorite horror movie of this century but I also do not like sequels or remakes since it is very difficult to repeat a masterpiece. James Wan uses elements from "The Shinning" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" together with the clichés of haunted house movies to deliver this sequel. Unfortunately it seems that in 2015 is foreseen the release of a third chapter of "Insidious". Where was Kali when she vanishes? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Sobrenatural: Capítulo 2" ("Supernatural: Chapter 2")
