Not much brewing in the movie world on this Friday the 13th.
Since it is Friday the 13th, Hollywood serves up a horror movie: "Insidious: Chapter 2," the follow-up to the 2010 haunted-house thriller. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne return as Josh and Renai Lambert, dealing with the aftermath of the ghost-busting escapades of the last movie – which ended with the death of ghost chaser Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). But, we soon learn, something evil came back from the nether realm with Josh, and Renai must again enlist Elise's crew to combat the demons. Director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell (who reprises his role as one of Elise's aides) set up some creepy sequences, but it helps to have seen the first movie.
Also opening wide is "The Family," a dark comedy about a mob clan – led by Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer – living in Bordeaux, France, under witness protection. The Cricket's colleague Scott D. Pierce was less than impressed.
