Insidious: Chapter 2
The second entry of the psychedelic horror show sadly loses something in the telling. Whereas the first had a genuine mystery around it, this comes across like trying to explain a joke. Wilson is particularly good with a Jack-in-the-Shining act and other key players keep their vision, but the details occasionally seem painfully drawn out. And as we all know, the Devil is in the details.
Insidious: Chapter 2 | Directed by James Wan (USA 2013) with Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne. Starts October 17
