Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Insidious: Chapter 2 is the sequel to 2011's terrifying horror hit Insidious, featuring many of the same characters in similar situations. Like the original, there's little or no gore, sex, or language (a couple of uses of "s--t," plus "goddamn," "hell," etc.), but you can definitely expect a lot of very scary, disturbing, and shocking imagery, as well as some fighting (characters bash each other with household objects). The main young boy isn't separated from his parents in this film, but he is shown to be in danger. Bottom line? If you're not a veteran horror fan, this is the stuff nightmares are made of.
A married couple is shown kissing.
The movie is filled with very scary images and sounds. Some of the sudden shocks will send sensitive viewers jumping out of their seats. Some disturbing images come up as well, as when the father is seen attacking his wife and attempting to attack his children. In these scenes, characters hurl household objects at one another and beat each other up. Ghosts attack a young boy. Characters use a Taser gun and a syringe full of sedative. A dead body is shown, and a tiny amount of blood is seen, in a photograph and on a knocked-out tooth.
A few uses of "s--t," plus "hell," "goddamn," "oh my God," etc. A character refers to his "nuts" after falling down in a dark room.
Characters try to help one another in this movie, even entering into frightening and potentially dangerous situations in order to do so.
