“INSIDIOUS CHAPTER 2″ PRESS PREVIEW
Do you believe in Ghosts?
It depends, right?
Yet before you can even pause for a soul-churning answer, hey presto ….
the film director JAMES WAN, his motley crew and cast of “INSIDIOUS” return in a jiff to hastily whisk you off your feet and ferry you through another dimension of his ghoulish haunts, just in case you haven’t braved enough of his scares the last time.
Money spins the world, hence every film maker is eager to jump onto a proven bandwagon.
Haunted house remakes reap lucrative returns at the global box office, this much you can be assured.
For a fact, there are myriads of horror features queuing up in the pipeline for cinematic release.
All old houses have their own tales, and are reminiscent of some kinds of haunts.
So it’s mind over matter.
Are ghosts for real?
Here’s a brief synopsis for INSIDIOUS CHAPTER 2:
The movie is touted by the production company as a terrifying sequel to the first one. Is it?
This time, the Lambert family is adamant about uncovering the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.
They are soon to realize that the demons that possessed their youngest son have not been eradicated.
So Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) call in a variety of paranormal experts in a desperate attempt to track the origin of the nightmarish happenings.
The investigation delves into Josh’s troubled childhood and his connection to a mentally unstable man from his past, along with untold secrets from his mother (Barbara Hershey).
Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson), now a dad, is still being hounded by the supernatural, similar to how he was as a kid in 1983.
This time, his son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins) is implicated as well.
We are shown that the souls of both the dead and alive end up being caught in the “neither world”.
Josh also has to travel back in time to seek help from himself in 1983.
Apparently so, if you do not focus.
Director JAMES WAN is trying to cramp too much on an overloaded platter of mysterious crashes, moving objects, angry ghosts and hungry apparitions.
“INSIDIOUS CHAPTER TWO” is indeed, a watered down version of the first chapter and it has a bit of everything from all of the director’s body of work.
Ask not too many questions if you wish to enjoy the scares.
And if the box office for this Chapter 2 is encouraging, you can be assured that the excitement will continue in Chapter 3.
