If you’ve already seen the first trailer released for James Wan’s upcoming horror sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2, then you’ve got the basic gist of what’s in its new international trailer as well. It’s starts with the same heart-warming footage of a family enjoying each other’s company, takes the same turn when it starts to look like their troubles might not be over after all, and then ends with the same stinger of that creepy dude yelling in Patrick Wilson’s face about having his baby.
If, like many, you’re a huge fan of the first Insidious and are anticipating the hell out of this sequel, you’re still probably going to want to take a look at the second trailer though. Not only does it include even more spooky-looking ghosts than the first did, and a few more of those tense moments that Wan is getting so good at creating (Have you seen The Conjuring yet? It’s terrifying), but it also provides some hints regarding the further world-building that this next installment in what now seems likely to become the Insidious saga is going to be doing. To be more specific, it starts to dig a little bit into the Wilson character’s past.
This isn’t likely the last look we’re going to get at footage from this film before it gets released on Friday, September 13, but so far it’s nice to see that the advertising is giving away just enough to wet fan’s appetites without spelling out every detail of the story. With all of the money that horror movies have been making lately, and with how good Wan’s have been getting, The Conjuring: Chapter 2 isn’t really the sort of product you have to sell—you just have to make audiences aware that it’s available for consumption.
Still though, that was a lot of evil spirits.
