Summary: While I didn't find it quite as effective as the original Insidious - for a horror franchise (and since they've already announced a thrid film, I can call it that), it's one of the better ones out there. Truly unnerving in parts, James Wan knows how to craft a good scare - the story this time is a bit muddled (you're essentially following two separate stories that come together in the end) but if you're looking for a decent horror film, it's a good choice.
Summary: The Lambert family needs to figure out why their family is tied to the deadly spirit world and it involves delving in a dark family secret but it must be done before they are all claimed. This movie has some scary parts in it but the director of the movie but all of hes scares in the conjuring.
Excerpt: James Wan has really been on a role with Insidious, The Conjuring, and now Insidious Chapter 2. He still has a long way to go before he can be titled a master of horror, but he certainly shows a great amount of promise. Chapter 2 is a very solid sequel to the original that many found terrifying, but that I found to be a huge disappointment.
Excerpt: Insidious scared the crap out of me. Back in 2011 when I left Insidious' big screening room, it struck me that James Wan (who made this year's fantastic The Conjuring. And Dead Silence...) is a true talent. He understands tension - what creates it and how to build it. He earns his scares. He establishes a dreading atmosphere that oozes with grueling horror and intensity. Insidious: Chapter 2 is his latest work, and I really don't know what to call it.
Excerpt: 'Insidious: Chapter 2' is easily one of the best horror sequels I've seen in a long time. A true continuation of the first and not just a re-hash of old for the sake of making money (like most sequels these days). The story continues onward from where we left off, provides a prequel segment, adds some interesting mythology, and even revisits scenes from the first from a different perspective. Because of this, it's crucial that you watch 'Insidious' beforehand.
One of the greatest recent horror movies - you'll love it!

Conclusion: As a huge horror movie fan, I couldn't wait to see the new sequel to Insidious. The first was a great fun horror with a strong influence from the fab movie, Poltergiest. The sequel however just blew me away! With a much stronger plot, great demons and ghosties and some genuinely terrifying scenes.
Summary: Nachdem die Familie Lambert den Spuk in ihrem alten Haus besiegen konnten, ziehen sie aus und suchen Zuflucht bei der Großmutter Lorraine (Barbara Hershey). Doch der Umzug allein reicht nicht aus, denn schnell bemerkt Renai (Rose Byrne auch hier unnatürliche Dinge. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit gilt dabei ihren Kindern, doch die Dämonen haben es dieses Mal nicht auf ihren Sohn Dalton (Ty Simpkins), sondern auf ihren Mann Josh (Patrick Wilson) abgesehen.
Summary: Einleitung Weiterhin sitzt Familie Lambert ein Geist im Nacken. Er folgt ihnen ins Haus der Oma, wo er sich nächtlich lautstark bemüht, auf eine wesentlich kaliberstärkere Bedrohung aus dem Jenseits aufmerksam zu machen … - Das gelingt natürlich nur bedingt, weshalb im großen Finale nicht nur im parallel im Diesseits und Jenseits, sondern auch auf verschiedenen Zeitebenen gerauft wird: Horror ohne Grusel, der durch Action und Getöse ersetzt wird und sich nie originell...
