Riddick (2013, dir. David Twohy)

Riddick is marooned on a planet populated by water-activated monsters. The third movie in the cycle strips back most of the excess from Chronicles… offering an OK┬ásiege flick that’s part remake of Pitch Black.

Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015, dir. Leigh Whannell)

Part 3 is a prequel, offering backstory on Elise, and her team-up with Specs and Tucker, plus another demonic yarn. Lots of jump scares, handled well enough if you like this sort of thing, with series screenwriter/actor Whannell now elevated to director.

Viral (2016, dir. Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman)

Teens on an isolated housing development are caught up in a parasitic epidemic. Not actually a virus at all, then, but this low-key horror does the usual things well enough to maintain interest throughout by keeping its focus tight on its protagonists.

Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013, dir. James Wan)

The Lambert family aren’t free from their demons. Direct continuation from the first movie, deftly interweaving the events of that with this. Jumpscares galore in this efficient carnival sideshow flick, which delights in well-crafted boo! moments.

Insidious (2010, dir. James Wan)

A boy caught in a coma-like trance is channelling lost souls. Straightforward jumpscare machine, played effectively and with all the major tropes (unexplained stuff, tech investigation, kooky paranormalists) covered, Lots of spill-your-popcorn moments.
