Insidious 2 was released this year, with upcoming director James Wan directing his second chapter within the Insidious series.
The film takes off from the first Insidious where Elise Rainer, informs Mrs. Lambert that the paranormal activity occurring is not the house, but her son Josh. Its 1986 in the second installment, Josh (Patrick Wilson) is a married man with three children. Josh soon realises that his oldest son, Dalton, has a special gift where he can travel in his sleep to 'The Further'.
The first thirty minutes of the film contain the usual aspects within a horror film. With closet doors opening by themselves, a baby crying and self playing pianos. Although these techniques are used in the first Insidious, they still manage to create a scare for the audience, which is obviously vital for a horror film.
The camera angles make the film a lot more successful. James Wan manages to use these to help present the film in a unique way, the audience will be allowed to take in all the main aspects of the story and sit back and watch knowing that they haven't missed anything. The film provides a lot of narrative structure and good tension for the audience. The story fits in well with the scares, to create on of the most memorable horror movies in the last few years.
So, with James Wan now fully established in the horror genre. We can hope for more brilliant features from the young and talented director.
