The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013)

Starring: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell
Director: James Wan


Premise:
After the incident in the first movie, the Lambert family moves into the mother's home while police investigation occurs. Soon they realize that their haunting troubles are not yet over. 

My Take:
I am really torn by the movie. One one hand it provides decent scares, looks great, and continues the story from the original. On the other hand the story is so far out there that it really takes away from all the good. We have what is essentially ghost time travel and yet another apparition haunting the family. In the context of what the story, it works and all answers are tied together nicely. But it is a stretch to believe it all. 

Rating: In the middle
