    Here's a better than average spook-house movie, mostly because Insidious decides it can haunt an audience without spraying it with blood. show more

    It's far more annoying than frightening. show more

    Creepy movie! Made me jump quite a bit and the music selection is great! The music in this totally sets the horrifying theme of this movie! I did feel that it was getting a bit stupid at the end and it dissapointed me somewhat, along with the cheesy looking demon (Man with the fire on his face), but this is a movie definately worth to buy.

    This movie was hilarious; a cross between The Exorcist, Ghostbusters, Poltergeist, and Return of the Jedi. I laughed the entire time. I\'m waiting for the Wayans brothers\' spoof. Funniest moments: 1. The haunting experts taking pictures of the \'entity\' with a Fisher Price Viewfinder reel. 2. The old lady ghost in the father\'s childhood photos. I half-expected her to be be giving him piggy-back rides and posing with him sitting in her lap. 3. The kid in his pajamas getting out of bed and slapping the living daylights out of a grown man. There were some good shots and good sound, but it was very inconsistent and wasn\'t scary. I understand this movie was made on a shoestring budjet. Someone should\'ve taken that shoestring and strangled the director with it.
