Insidious Chapter 2 picks up where the first film left off with the Lambert family under attack by paranormal forces. Instead of the child Dalton, the spirit is focused this time on using Josh, the father, as a vessel to murder his family. With this being the second James Wan film to come out this year, and the fact that both films deal with the otherworldly, a family’s struggle against these spirits, and ghost hunters, comparisons are inevitable. As a reviewer, it’s difficult not to see these films as fundamentally connected, perhaps part of the same universe (Waniverse?), or be tempted to assert that Wan may have written both films simultaneously.
