Overall a very dull and poor sequel. The mistake here was bringing back the main cast, who hardly lit up the original. Like the first film there is too much spoonfeeding going on, not everyone who watches this movie is 12 years old you know. This sequel picks up where the original left off, but really takes it time to get into gear. By the end of it all you're thinking that the kid actors are way better than any adult here. There is one standout scene, a kind of mini time travel one that relates straight to the originals banging door scene, cleverly done. Other than that, this franchise is already becoming a drag, and of course it's all left open for a possible 3rd movie.

The next chapter in the Insidious series continues in the same vein as before. We are back in the same house but this time the demonic presence has taken control of Josh's body. Although his family suspect something is up they dont know for sure and with the death of Elise still hanging over them they are even more uncertain of Josh's intentions.

It picks up pretty much right where we left off and the creep factor is still high. This time the demon in question makes its presence known from an early stage and never really lets up. In chapter 1 the demon was a creepy jester type thing which had more of a slow burn tactic before really turning the screws. Here it is fairly relentless with a scare never too far away.

The further is also explored a bit more with Josh being stuck there for most of the film. James Wan has an uncanny knack at setting an atmosphere and does so perfectly here. The house is creepy, the further is suitably moody and the ghost in question is particularly ghastly. The ending falls a little flat with things just tying up quickly and neatly but on the whole this is an enjoyably jumpy film. Not earth shatteringly scary but will give you a few chills.

I won't comment on the film as many others have already done so, but personally I didn't enjoy it. The most annoying thing is the awful sound quality. In various parts it is so obvious the sound has been added it's ridiculous. The quiet bits are that quiet you can hardly hear what is being said and have to turn the sound up high. The loud bits are so damn loud they could burst your ear drums! Very irritating and totally unnecessary and certainly didn't enhance the film for me - quite the opposite. I spent most of the film turning the sound up and down. I saw the blu-ray version so maybe the DVD doesn't have this issue.
BTW I didn't purchase this i watched it via LoveFilm but it's not possible to write a review for just LoveFilm since Amazon took them over!

Format: DVD
"Insidious" ended with a gloriously creepy cliffhanger -- Josh Lambert was possessed by an evil ghost who had been stalking him since childhood. And it murdered Elise.

And as the subtitle suggests, "Insidious Chapter 2" is less a sequel and more a continuation of the story that was left unfinished. The first movie was a bit like a modern version of "Poltergeist," but this one is more of a supernatural version of "Psycho" -- and while chillingly spooky, it leaves a number of loose threads hanging that are never really addressed. Come on, where is Darth Maul demon?

Many years ago, Josh Lambert was haunted by a spirit, and Elise was called in to somehow deal with the situation. Now the police are investigating her murder, and Renai (Rose Byrne) is trying to get back into normal life now that her son has been returned to her. But weird things keep happening around her, including the piano and/or baby toys playing by themselves, and more weird visions of a creepy white-clad woman.

And Josh (Patrick Wilson) seems strangely unconcerned about what's going on -- possibly because he's not actually Josh. And, well, because he's hearing voices commanding him to kill the Lambert family in order to stay alive.

Meanwhile, Lorraine (Barbara Hershey) suspects that something supernatural is still up, so she accompanies Specs and Tucker (Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson) as they try to contact Elise. Thanks to a dice-using medium named Carl (Steve Coulter), they head to a hospital where Lorraine used to work -- and they soon discover that a bizarre ICU case many years ago may be connected to the current supernatural events. But to save Josh -- and stop a crazed serial killer ghost -- someone will have to venture into the Further again.

Just a mess. Uninspired. Thinks it's clever.
First one was 'meh, okay' this one was just terrible. I really lost all interest in the end mainly because even though you could tell where Wan wanted to go he didn't know how to get there and so we're bombarded with cringe-worthy homages and tired cliches.
