The creators of the SAW franchise and the producers of paranormal activity came together to try and scare the living daylights out of you. I can say that they were successful, Insidious has many scary moments.
The movie finds a teacher and his wife, move into a new house with their three children. Things are seemingly going good for them, but there is something amiss in the place they call home. It starts with little things like books mysteriously falling off the shelves, household items disappearing only to appear someplace else. Their young son starts to hear voices in the walls and is drawn to the attic, where he has an accident. He just has few bruises so nothing is made out of it until it he goes to sleep that night and falls into an unexplainable coma. That is when horror starts, as baby monitors pick up strange voices, locked doors suddenly open, alarms go off for no reason. Best line in the movie “It’s not the house that’s haunted………..it’s your son!”
It puts a twist on the haunted house cliché.
Creative camera work and lighting enhance the scares.
Provides genuinely scary moments that will make your heart skip a beat.
The ending scenes were a bit over the top.
The comedy moments were not necessary as they did not add to the plot.
Insidious is a horror movie that will get your heart pumping, provide a few laughs, and give plenty of skin crawling scares.
