We gave it a C-

Still having nightmares from director James Wan’s 2010 ghost story Insidious, starring Patrick Wilson? Or from this summer’s Wan-directed ghost story The Conjuring, also starring Patrick Wilson? Then we have bad news for your subconscious. Insidious: Chapter 2 picks up after the last film’s cliff-hanger climax, which revealed that Wilson’s family-man character had become possessed by an evil spirit. ”The fact that it’s not a new family is really cool,” says Wilson. ”We’re all back!” That ”all” includes Lin Shaye — despite the fact that her psychic investigator was killed at the end of the first movie. Sweet dreams!
