  • 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

  • If your idea of a fun night out is to be manipulated by freaky sound effects, jumpy edits, and point-of-view shots of ceiling fans whooshing menacingly, Insidious is the film for you. show more

  • Successful to a point (though seemingly unaware of the chuckles it produces in between shrieks), the movie has strong prospects with genre audiences but won't spawn a phenomenon resembling the filmmakers' previous franchise. 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.
