I went to this movie with high expectations. The first movie was by far one of the scariest movies that I have seen, so I had the same idea going into the new one. I went opening night hoping that it was going to be good. For the first half of the movie I was sitting there waiting hoping that they were just building the anticipation, but it never came. Granted there were 2 times I did jump, but to say that the movie was scary was a joke comparing it to the first insidious. The movie tried to tell more of a crime fighter story rather then sticking to a horror movie format. It was a huge waste of money and I am so dissappointed in this movie. I went from beyond excited to beyond let down. This movie Gets a BIG OH NO from me.

This movie was AWFUL! I gave up a free movie ticket to see this pile of garbage?? I was so hyped-up about this film and after it was over, I was COMPLETELY disappointed! It was NO where near as scary or creepy as the first one, and the main evil character was a joke! SAVE YOUR MONEY!! Wait for DVD!!

Insidious Chapter 2 was pretty scary, but it had the perfect amount of comic relief. it wasn't frightening to the point where you wouldn't sleep at night but it will make you jump and scream.

When I first saw that Insidious 2 was coming out, I was very excited. My friends and I really loved the first one. Although the first one, towards the end, was kind of confusing, I still liked it. This movie really tied up a lot of loose ends in the first Insidious movie. However, this movie didn't make me jump as much. Of course there were some scary and creepy parts, but I found myself not as scared. I'm not sure if it was because of the comedy in it, like other people have suggested, or something else, but I just wasn't as scared. However, don't let that deter you from seeing the sequel. If you were a fan of the first one, you have to go see this one so it all makes sense for you. Don't go see this one if you haven't yet seen the first one. You won't exactly understand everything that goes on. Out of 5 stars, this movie is probably a 2.5.

This was a good followup to the original. I like how it was directly following the first film and then worked in elements tying it even tighter to the first. It wasn't terrifying but it was good.
