James Wan United States, 2013

HKFanatic's rating of the film Insidious: Chapter 2

While it may be difficult to fault James Wan for his technique, as he is clearly a student of 70's horror filmmaking, I can at the very least criticize him for not deploying that skill in the service of stronger scripts. The long takes, the slow zooms, the Argento-esque lighting - they don't rouse as much feeling when in the context of a forgettable PG-13 spookfest aimed at multiplex-going teenagers.
