The story is about a couple and their three children move into a new home only to find themselves in a battle with vengeful spirits. After one of their children falls into a coma, they call on a team of ghost hunters and a psychic to drive out the evil before losing their child to "the further". A lot of people were mix about this movie and i know it's peoples opinion I know, but I found this movie chilling and it got under my skin.

Loved it, an excellent piece of filmmaking. One of the best horror films I've seen in recent years.

Insidious is quite a scare.. Worth seeing..

I'm not scared easily but this one had me sitting on the edge of my seat, quite uncomfortably, for most of the film. This is definitely one of the best thrillers I've seen in a few years. I'm more inclined to classify it as thriller, because there aren't too many standard horror scenes of blood and gore. It's a spiritual thriller. I think one of the main reasons I found this so appealing was that it didn't stick to the traditions style of suspense. Most suspense films have a very large build up to a quick, startling moment. While Insidious is more unique and entertaining because it cuts between serious/frightening and turns around to be almost disturbing/humorous, and then back so fast it would just catch you unaware. Leaving you wondering how you feel about what you just saw. In any case...

Insidiious review

It may not be original, but it was fun viewing the story of a tight knit family. To create an effective horror flick, one doesn't need gore, senseless violence or horrific monsters. Definitely not for everybody's taste or liking, but provides the fear factor for horror fanatics. Renai and Josh Lambert (Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson) moved to a new house since something goes wrong. Their son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) suffers from a coma, Josh's mother calls on Elise Reiner (Lin Shaye) to check on an ongoing concern. Tucker and Specs reminded this critic of the Ghostbusters, scare tactics of Paranormal Activity, Poltergeist and The original Exorcist.

The score definitely aids with the picture's mood coupled with the spectacular acting of Rose Byrne. Lin Shaye is an effective support a...

Just turn it off before the last 2 minutes

This was well on it's way to getting a high rating. Mixing things we've seen from Paranormal Activity and Poltergeist (among others), it has a great build-up. Rather than relying on gore to scare you it's always the thought of what might be there that frightens you more. Bumps in the night, strange voices, and things seen out of the corner of eyes make for some good jumps while viewing this movie. But then the movie takes a weird turn halfway through, and I was actually okay with it, even with the strange third act (if you haven't seen it, it answers the "what if we had seen what Jo Beth Williams sees when she goes into the realm to rescue Carol Anne" question). But then it happened. The out-of-nowhere second twist in the final two minutes that ends the movie completely different than wha...
