A haunted family struggles to uncover a terrifying secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world in “Insidious: Chapter 2,” the latest nerve-twisting horror thriller from director James Wan (“The Conjuring”) and screenwriter Leigh Whannell (“Saw,” “Insidious”).
Produced by “Paranormal Activity's” Jason Blum and Oren Peli, the sequel reteams the cast of the first film, including Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring”), Rose Byrne (“X-Men: First Class”), Barbara Hershey (“Black Swan”), Lin Shaye (“There’s Something About Mary”) and Ty Simpkins (“Iron Man 3”).
Working individually and collectively, director James Wan, screenwriter Leigh Whannell and producer Jason Blum have been responsible for some of the most influential, commercially successful and flat-out terrifying horror thrillers of the past decade.
In 2004 Wan and Whannell unleashed the groundbreaking and hugely popular “Saw,” which spawned a blockbuster franchise on which Whannell continued to serve as a writer (“Saw II” and “III”) and executive producer. Wan most recently helmed the acclaimed haunted-house tale “The Conjuring,” while Blum has shepherded such blood-curdling hits as “Paranormal Activity” and “Sinister” to the screen. Together, the trio collaborated on the disturbing and original 2011 psychological horror thriller “Insidious,” a micro-budgeted film that became the most profitable theatrical release that year.
Now all three filmmakers are back—along with the entire cast of “Insidious”—with “Insidious: Chapter 2,” which continues the story of the Lambert family’s life-and-death struggle with malignant spirits bent on destroying their lives.
“Insidious” centers on the troubles of the Lamberts, a suburban family who leave their haunted house for a new home, only to learn it’s not their house that is haunted—it’s their eldest son. “Insidious: Chapter 2” rejoins the family as they try to put their recent troubles behind them, but discover that the spirits that have tormented them are far from finished.
Opening across the Philippines on Sept. 18, “Insidious: Chapter 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Visit www.columbiapictures.com.ph to see the latest trailers, get free downloads and play free movie games.
