Review by Brother Reed

Can there be any doubt that James Wan has the box office cornered on horror right now? The dust has barely settled from his financially and critically successful The Conjuring, and on its heels comes this sequel to 2010’s Insidious. Between these films and others like Mama and You’re Next, I feel like I’ve spent a large portion of my time at the movies this year watching frightened women walk slowly around their homes to foreboding music while creaks, knocks, and other bumps in the night emanate from just out of frame. It’s to Wan’s credit that he still manages to make me watch through my fingers as he fills the empty spaces in his shots with the dread of the unknown. READ FULL REVIEW
