Not-so-scary seconds Insidious: Chapter 2'


Horror sequel falls short of original

Like it or not, the movie business is driven by profit. We can go on and on about artistry and merit and all that, but the truth is that by and large, the movies that get made are the ones that make a lot of money.

In terms of percentages, 2011's most profitable film wasn't one of the many blockbuster franchise offerings the studios churned out. No, it was a low-cost horror movie with a budget of less than $2 million. 'Insidious' was a massive hit by any definition, making just shy of $100 million globally at a cost of just $1.5 million to make.
