(at around 34 minutes) When Renai is walking down the hallway, the camera follows her. As the shot moves, archways on the right reveal parts of the dining room and living room. In one of the archways, the ghost woman who attacks Renai can be seen sitting in a chair in the corner surrounded by a window. When she passes the next archway, the woman is gone. See more »
(at around 1h 40 mins) When Specs and Tucker visit the house at the end of the movie, Tucker is seen to be holding a pastry with a bite out of the top corner, in the next scene shot from the side he takes a bite from the pastry meaning that both corners are now gone, however in the next again scene the pastry only has the one bite from it as originally seen.

Young Elise Rainier:
Hi. I'm Elise. You must be Lorraine.
Yes. Nice to meet you. I'm sorry it's so late. My day job kind of makes raising my son a night job.
Young Elise Rainier:
Don't worry about it. In my line of work, things tend to happen when it gets dark.

When I heard that they were making a sequel to this, I was both over-hyped with excitement and very nervous because let's face it, sequels rarely live up to the expectations of the originals. Thankfully though, this one did not disappoint (relative to the extent of other sequels).
It starts off directly where the original left off, which is nice because there is not a huge time gap in-between. Not only do they continue chapter 2 right where the first chapter left off, but the story also goes more in-depth with Josh's past.
Will every hard-core fan of Insidious be impressed by this sequel? Of course not. Insidious: Chapter 2 felt very different from the original. It was mostly because Insidious seemed more unique when it came out, while this chapter is more of the same with a few exceptions (e.g., possession). Without giving any major spoilers away, I will say that the last 30 minutes seemed more of a "slasher" movie than a paranormal movie, which may turn some hard-core Insidious fans away.
The scares also seemed forced at times, possibly from trying too hard to make the sequel as good, if not, better than the original, but it was still suspenseful regardless.
