Insidious: Chapter 2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Josh finds René on the floor and takes and places her on the couch her head is facing upwards, but in the next shot her head is tilted and facing the camera when Josh smells her, without her head moving.

Continuity mistake: We discover that because time is non-linear in the Further, it was Josh's spirit who was the one knocking on the door in the original film. However, the knocks we see Josh make in this film don't quite match up with the original film. In this film, he knocks many times frantically, whereas in the first film, we only hear a few faint knocks in rounds of three. (The film tries to mask this by inter-cutting footage from the first film to illustrate the point, but it still doesn't quite match up).

Trivia: Very briefly in the film, you can see a computer wallpaper image with the characters Specs, Tucker and an unknown third man. This third man is actually director James Wan in a small "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" cameo.

Trivia: During the opening of the film, Lindsay Seim portrays the younger Elise in the flashback sequence. However, Lin Shaye, who plays the older Elise, dubbed over Seim's dialog in post production. Director James Wan stated that this was done because Shaye has such a unique voice, and thus, it allowed her presence to be felt early in the film.

Trivia: When Specs and Tucker go into Elise's home, the painting on the wall of is from Paranormal Activity 2 and 3.

Young Elise Rainier: In my line of work things tend to happen when it gets dark.

Josh Lambert: I know what happened. I went in that place to get our son back and something evil followed me, who killed Elise.

Tucker: Bring it.

More quotes from Insidious: Chapter 2

Question: What does the ending of the movie mean? It has nothing to do with the 3rd movie like you'd think it would.


Chosen answer: The third movie was a prequel to the first 2. It was done to set up an explanation in case they made another movie that takes place after part 2, so her appearance after she died made sense.

Question: If Parker was possessing Josh throughout the whole movie, why didn't he just kill Josh's family right off the bat instead of waiting until close towards the end of the movie?
