The Lambert family’s struggle with the supernatural is far from over after the events of Insidious. There is no return to normalcy as Josh Lambert becomes the prime suspect in the murder of medium Elise Ranier and a long-buried secret plunges the Lamberts back into the terrifying world of darkness. As they seek to uncover a mysterious childhood secret that has left them inexplicably connected to the spirit world, everyone’s lives are put in danger. With the help of Elise’s former assistants Specs and Tucker and a veteran medium named Carl, Elise is contacted on the other side to assist in explaining the strange supernatural events. As it turns out, apparently when Josh brought his son Dalton back from the spirit world called The Further, his body was taken over by a serial killing bride in black who has haunted him since childhood. Now they must hurry to save the Lamberts from these dangerous haunting entities and help them finally find some peace.

On DVD and Blu-ray, fans can unlock secrets from this suspense thriller through two featurettes. “Peripheral Vision: Behind the Scenes” takes fans onto the set of the film to see how it was created, and “Ghostly Transformation” follows the make-up effects used to create the ghosts in The Further. Exclusive to Blu-ray are more than an hour of bonus materials, including a three-part webisode called “Insidious: Spectral Sightings,” which gives an inside look at the business operations of Specs and Tucker from their early days as paranormal investigators through their investigation with Elise. Three additional behind-the-scenes featurettes feature cast and crew highlights, including a discussion about making Insidious 2 and what it was like to film on a haunted location.
