James Wan's Weakest

Posted : 10 years, 1 month ago on 23 January 2014 02:54 (A review of Insidious: Chapter 2)

As a horror director for creepy and frightening movies, James Wan built a solid career worldwide, ranking among the top finest filmmakers so far.
After releasing the modern classic "Saw", movie loved by both critics and public, James kept himself on the top with the not-so-brilliant "Dead Silence", which continued to show the directors creativity and capacity of building a good and spooky atmosphere.

Moving on to "Insidious", the director ended once again on the spotlight, creating a fresh yet scary movie with a strong comedy aspect as well. The last one being superior to "Dead Silence" but yet far behind from "Saw".

That being said, most directors nowadays would see their careers falling apart with ridiculous releases, once it's hard to keep up with the genre horror.
That's when James Wan proves himself as one of the names to watch out for. "The Conjuring" ends up being one of the best horror movies ever made and tops all lists of "Best Horror Movie of the Decade", a thought shared by many (including myself)

With a career marked with good and decent movies that surround clever plot twists and dark atmosphere, the director makes his latest statment with "Insidious Part 2", his first sequel.
That's when all his work of art said below falls apart.
"Insidious part 2" remains as an "ok" horror movie with some interesting aspects, counting on a good plot and well-developed characters. Its weakest link comes as a surprise: The creativity (the most claimmed aspect of the director's work).
That puts a questions in my head: Did James Wan wasted all his creativity on "The Conjuring"?


"Insidious part 2" counts on great performances but lacks any scene that was scary enough. Vain ghosts and jump-scares seen a thousand of times before fulfill the rest of the film.

The atmosphere once again gives the movie a good breath, keeping it dark and coloured at the same time. Something like Dario Argento meets Wes Craven.

I strongly believe that, as a director, "Insidious part 2" goes far from being Wan's best work, but, considering the latest horror movies and directors on the run, James Wan is still a name that everyone should keep an eye on.

Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly review

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 2 July 2009 08:47 (A review of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly)

Melhor jogo do gênero, deixa muitos filmes sobre espíritos no chinelo.
O melhor da série Fatal Frame.

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 2 July 2009 07:10 (A review of The Pool)

Não consegue prender a atenção, é uma mistura mal feita de todos filmes de terror do gênero.
Não ganha zero porque a cena do tobogã e do tubo de ventilação são interessantes.
