James Wan(Saw) directs this low budget jump out of your skin fest that made me think that eventually Wan has the chance to make a really great horror movie. This one isn't it.
Insidious starts with a family who move into a house where creepy things happen. Things get worse when the oldest child is knocked out and then slips into a coma that confounds the doctors. After more strange occurances, a spirit investigator is called to help the family.
This movie is a cross between Poltergeist and Paranormal Activity, but there are definitely other elements that I recognized from other films. The movie is fun, but it all just doesn't gel well in the end. I do think that there are a couple of brilliant scenes and some real scares here. It is definitely worth checking out. I thought the preview was excellent.
