Insidious Chapter 2 (15)

Directed by James Wan/Two stars

After Insidious and the deliciously chilling The Conjuring I had very high expectations for James Wan's latest horror offering.

Unfortunately these were dashed by this rather silly and unimaginative sequel which picks up exactly where the original left off.

Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) is completely possessed by an evil entity which is enjoying life in his new corporal form and the race is on to track down Josh's soul.

Through flashbacks we learn why the spirit targeted him as a boy.

Sadly this is a deeply disappointing run-of-the-mill haunted house sequel which relies on cliched horror devices for its shock value.
