For awhile after seeing ‘Lights Out’ I wondered if my enjoyment of the film was for not entirely respectable reasons, if I enjoyed it for reasons closer to that of an MST3K film than that of a truly solid genre effort. But you know what? If something is fun I’m gonna tell the world it’s fun, and dammit this film is fun.
Two midcult phenomenons — Riddick and Insidious Part 2 — make their way to home video release in Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Packs.
Insidious: Chapter 2 is not as good as director James Wan’s critically acclaimed release from earlier this year, The Conjuring. It is, however, the rare sequel that surpasses its predecessor in quality and entertainment value.
‘The Conjuring’ very much feels like a 1970s horror film, before slashers were haunting teenage dreams and well before found footage became the way to make a story feel real.
