After a short trip into the year 1986, the action begins immediately at the end of Insidious. Here, the story of the Lambert family is spontaneously spun on, which does not seem to get away from the events in the “shadow world”.
Insidious was an effective, albeit genre-adapted, horror thriller that straight-lined its horror program. He had his strengths, but showed by his over motivation also substantive weaknesses. But initiator James Wang and his avowed buddy author Leigh Whannell put a lot of effort into the second infusion. Chapter 2 is not a repetition or a crude continuation of a successful formula that earned a lot of money.
