The sequel to Insidious, the 2011 horror movie which saw the Lamberts attempting to protect their child from evil spirits, was considerably more successful than the original during its weekend premiere.

The horror film Insidious 2 hit theatres today (Sept 13 2013) following its predecessor 'Insidious' that was released in 2010 and features the original cast of Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey and Ty Simpkins.
