Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Review:

This second chapter continues the story exactly where the first one left it, featuring the exact same family and side characters, but this time digging deep into the story of the ghosts themselves. This might just be what was lacking for the first movie to make it perfect, and the story here is a real pleasure to follow. It is convoluted and rich in surprise. It is only too bad that the better plot comes at the expense of the atmosphere itself. This second chapter is rich in jumpy scares and will make you scream a couple of times, but globally lacks this genuine tension which made the success of the first Insidious. It remains scary, especially the first few scenes, but becomes less and less tense as the story unfold and the movie starts to feel more like a paranormal thriller rather than a proper ghost film.

In conclusion, I liked the film, but I guess I was a little disappointed as compared to the first one, for I was hoping that genius James Wan would make something unforgettable out of that sequel.
