Insidious: Chapter 2 New Stills Reveal Surprises And Scares


James Wan’s hugely successful Insidious was the breakout horror gem of 2011. The sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2, picks up where that first film ended and there’s a bunch of new stills online showcasing the cast. Beware, they contain a BIG SPOILER.

With the main players from the first film back again, the story will follow the doomed Lambert family after the terrifying events of the first film. It’ll no doubt be connected to the goings on linking the family to the spirit world. Wan, back in the director’s chair; tweeted the first image from the film back in February. Teasing fans with a look at a spot of hypnosis, it looks like poor Dalton Lambert’s going through the ringer again.

Wan’s buddy Leigh Whannell is back on scripting duties and he’ll also make an onscreen appearance as a character called Specs. You can see him in the first of the new images. Yeah, he’s the one in the glasses. Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins and Barbara Hershey reprise their roles.

A new teaser image has also landed. If you weren’t scared from the shower after watching Psycho, then prepare to get grubby. Showing a pair of hands reaching from behind a curtain it’s enough to make one shy away from the cleanliness cubicle for life. Perhaps get a big bath instead.

After taking a massive haul at the box office, it’s interesting to note just how long it took for the sequel to be announced. As is usually the case with successful small budget flicks, if they make a sizeable return studios often announce a sequel after the opening weekend figures are in. For Insidious Chapter 2, this was not the case. It can only be a good indicator of the time and energy Wan and Whannell put into scripting the sequel.

Insidious: Chapter 2 opens in the US and UK on September 13th.
