There may be a third sequel because the movie left a cliffhanger.
Josh, (the father) in the Lambert family, soul is trapped. "It" beat him to his body. "It" possessing Josh's body killed Elise (the psychic). The movie starts off where it all began with Elise visiting the Lambert family in the early 80s when Josh was a youngster and some strange things were occurring. The movie is filled with twists and turns and somehow they manage to have it make sense so by the time the movie ends you know who was behind all the damage. Lorraine (Josh's mother and Dalton's grandmother) had been a nurse when she had a strange experience with the patient in 104 a man named Parker Crane who later committed suicide. Crane never had a childhood because his mother always wanted a little girl and would dress him up as a girl and insist he refer to himself as a "Marilyn" which lead to him becoming a serial killer and wanting to reclaim his lost childhood by possessing Josh Lambert. Elise managed to repress his memories so he couldn't travel out of body and have his body at risk to be possessed, but at the time they did not know that Josh's son Dalton also had the gift and had been possessed (Insidious 1). After Insidious 1 where Dalton is rescued by his dad, Parker Crane's wicked mother possesses Josh and is the voice telling him to KILL KILL his family.
I saw it last night.
I have never seen a movie that scared me, but the first Insidious creeped me out.
Chapter 2 wasn't scary at all.
Only one person in the packed theatre screamed once throughout the entire movie, and nothing even happened at that point. I think she psyched herself out hoping something was going to happen.
Unless you're afraid of your own shadow; you really have nothing to be worried about when it comes to seeing Chapter 2.
There's also a lot of comic relief from Tucker and Specs.
I read that there probably won't be another Insidious, but the ending of this one has us all set up for a 3rd chapter. I'm hoping that there is one!!
I loved it! Some interesting turns that could appear in a 3rd movie is the fact that we didn't see Josh, Dalton nor Carl return to their bodies. Other spirits could be in them. I also think that at the end, the girl's demon sounded like the one haunting Dalton from the first movie with the long fingernails and red face.
