This mini review of the disappointing Insidious: Chapter 2 appears in the October edition of ExBerliner.
The second entry of the psychedelic horror show Insidious sadly loses something in the telling. Whereas the first had a genuine mystery around it, this comes across like someone trying to explain a joke. Not funny.
Patrick Wilson is particularly entertaining with a Jack-in-the-Shining act and other key players keep their vision, but the details occasionally seem painfully drawn out.
And as we all know, the Devil is in the detail.
