Brief Synopsis:
I have trimmed a bunch in the first and second acts and completely rescored the movie with the wonderful work of Goblin.
Intention:
I wanted to change the mood and feel of the movie, particularly the first half. It's very much a jump scare/fake-out jump scare movie for a bit and then gets really interesting when we delve into the Further in my opinion. I wanted to reduce the jumps and change the music to make it feel more like a psychological thriller. Plus Goblin is dope, so I wanted to use their stuff.
Other Sources:
Multiple horror soundtracks: Zombi (DotD), Contamination, Suspiria, Buio Omega, Notturno and the "regular" Goblin record True Blood.

Editing Details:
I made the narrative trims I wanted to make first, then pored through all my Goblin stuff noting tracks that fit the vibe I was looking for. Goblin are fantastic at a lot of things but for this edit I was going for a feeling of dread. So I chose pieces that were generally not fast-paced (with some exception, of course) but more setting the mood of things being not right. I also was looking for pieces that kind of pulse and drive forward. I wanted the score to be very front and center (hence the volume levels) and drive the feeling of dread for this family. I also knew I wanted to repeat some tracks and motifs so that was in mind while I was going through the music, as well.
Cuts and Additions:
- Cut kids talking through cans
- Cut piano scare and baby on floor fake-out (obvious set-up)
- Cut conversation with Josh and Renai
- Cut Lorraine talking to Dalton (who's sleep-talking) and seeing woman in the white dress (it's repetitive and way too obvious when she finds Josh behind the door)
- Cut Dalton recounting the stuff with Josh (again, too obvious)
- Cut Lorraine telling Specs and Tucker about the night before. Specs and Tucker just found the video so they would logically invite Lorraine over there regardless
- Reordered scenes so Renai being fooled by the baby cries is intercut with Lorraine meeting with Specs and Tucker
- Cut Josh’s tooth falling out and him (Parker) talking to the Bride in Black
- Cut scene with cans. It’s a decent scene but I cut the earlier scene with the cans and the ghostly whispers audio and score were too deeply entrenched for me to make it sound good
- Cut some of Carl and Josh's back and forth so we go straight from suspicion to attack (no dice)

Another top notch edit form Mr Ninja. While this one isn't a good as TMWFOHF it is still a damn fine edit. Shortening this down and adding the amazing Goblin soundtrack helped up the scare factor and losing the crappy jump scares made this so much better

A/V Quality: 10/10
Solid quality.

Editing: 10 visual, 8 audio
I didn't notice any visual cuts. Unfortunately though the audio editing felt a bit uneven. The volume level jumps and falls and the new music isn't perfectly integrated.

Narratie & Enjoyment: 8
I'm not a big fan of "Insidious 2" but this edit is definitely superior. I enjoyed the added Goblin music as I'm a big Goblin fan (see: "Scream - The Giallo Cut"), but the music didn't really mesh together well and I couldn't help but think "Oh here's a new Goblin track" whenever a new piece of music came on.

This edit is great
I love the added music of Goblin
I was for me a inspiration to use this music by my upcoming Hostel cut
Just like the one before the editor did a very nice job on this
I love the originals but i hope that the third one is the final chapter in this trilogy
I see to many sequels of the same thing in these series
But again: great job and this edit is permanently in my "Cuddly Ninja" folder
