Initially believing the hauntings have stopped, Renai and her mother-in-law Lorraine Barbara Hershey try to go on with life. And while the movie's mythology is needlessly convoluted, at least it paints both Wan and the film's game cast into a much bigger corner. It's the kind of house you require for a haunting movie, with lots of rooms, nooks, crannies, corridors, staircases, closets and shadows — and an attic, of course.

After reviewing with the doctors and finding out their son has no head trauma, the two parents have absolutely no idea what has happened to their son.
Before they leave, the trio finds out that the old woman was actually a mentally deranged man called Parker Crane. However, for a spirit to consume a body, a period of time and energy are required. Renai is speaking with a police detective Michael Beach about the death of Elise, and the detective says he will get in touch with her as to whether-or-not the marks on Elise were by Josh's hands. After Carl puts his hand on the outfit, he is able to see into the past. See it with your friends or 3+ people for a good times, other then that, it's not the best. I still loved this movie!

Still trying to make sense of it all, and for that matter figure out if it even did make sense or not. It turns out that Josh was haunted by a vicious spirit that took the form of an old woman in a black bridal gown when he was a child. Renai and Josh Lambert have recently moved into a new home with their three children. Lorraine goes into the bathroom, and is locked in, and sees a lady. His 'real' name is 'Marilyn. She is reacquainted with the story of an old patient Parker, who turns out was a cross-dressing serial killer who killed many women. Her boxes get moved around by unseen hands.
While Renai heavily suspects that Josh is possessed by the spirit of the old woman, she has no proof outside of the photo found at the end of the first Insidious.

The good news is the entire cast understands the nature of this particular beast and deliver performances that simultaneously put us at ease and at the edge of our seats. It certainly achieved that goal. Before this series, traditional terror was considered antiquated. There is a chance that both the red-faced demon and the bride in black might show up since neither has been defeated yet.

Everything from the simplicity of the spook. Once defeating him, Josh enters the red door. Also, since The Further manipulates time we could easily see this film tie into the other three movies. Insidious: Chapter 2 has a lot of eerie imaginary, tension building moments, and stimulating ideas. In my opinion the make up effects could have been more scarier.
As the plot thickens the violence escalates, with portrayals of a possessed male character that lashes out and strikes a woman multiple times, attempts to choke her and threatens a child with a weapon. Young Josh leads them to where they need to go and the group discovers the home of Parker Crane. Whereas Insidious was a scary movie with some silliness, Chapter 2 is a silly movie with some scares. Remember how Josh killed Elise at the end of the first film, his body being controlled by that evil woman that haunted him in his childhood? Meanwhile Lorraine seeks out Elise's partners Specs and Tucker expecting to find answers. As Parker destroys all memories of his mother. They run a session to try to communicate with their son but Dalton appears and the demon uses Dalton's body to fight the group, along with other entities who want Dalton's body. They drive over, and are attacked by 'Josh.

What do these repeated themes say about our views of religion and the possibility of a life hereafter? But just because Insidious: Chapter 2 isn't as good as the original doesn't make this sequel a bad movie. In normal reality, Crane uses a fire extinguisher and attempts to break down the basement doors to get to Renai and her children. However, Elise feels that something is wrong with Josh and takes his photo which sends him into a rage.
This goes a long way in a film where characters constantly explain why and how supernatural happenings occur. Old school horror fans may be divided on this film but more casual viewers may find it enjoyable.
