Movie Spotlight: Insidious: Chapter 2

Insidious: Chapter 2 is a 2013 movie starring Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, and  Lin Shaye, who all reprise their roles from 2011's Insidious.  After the events of Insidious, Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) Lambert and their three children temporarily move in with Josh's mother Lorraine (Barbara Hershey).  Josh grew up in this home, and he used to see the spirit of an old woman who wanted to possess him.  Paranormal activity occurs almost immediately, and after Renai is attacked by the spirit of a lady in white, she wants to take the family out of the house, but Josh (who Renai suspects might be possessed) tells her just not to be afraid of the spirits (yeah, like that's an option...).  As Renai deals with things at home, Lorraine, wanting to find out why strange things are happening, enlists the help of paranormal investigators, and they find the answers at Our Lady of Angels hospital, where Lorraine used to work as a nurse.

I enjoyed Insidious: Part 2 and thought it was pretty creepy.  All of the actors were great, especially Patrick Wilson, who basically played two characters: Josh and possessed Josh.  My only complaint is that the movie ended on a cliffhanger, and Insidious: Chapter 3 isn't coming out until 2015...I don't want to wait that long!

My rating: 8/10
