prove generali prima di The Conjuring. Si perde nel finale, che non spaventa nenache per sbaglio. Gli attori sono bravi, diretti da una regia che fa del virtuosismo la sua arma migliore, di chi sa bene di essere molto bravo. j
James Wan la vanesia. Discreto

First of all the director tried to do everything to made this a perfect Horror-thriller/or even masterpiece according to some people ! but failed at every dept.

All James wan r Filled with very unnecessary jump scare scenes.. this1 is not an exception. Also it will be followed by some nonsense sequel..so watch out !!

Family(Father bloodline) with a Sp. gift+evil spirit following them+Ghosts in the new house they moved in ... oh! anything left dear director sir ?? 1 st one which seems to be unique but only to writer audiences already watched it in poltergeist..they added some of their nonsense in it.They tried to frighten people with Red demon ,which actually made me laugh when he climbs like spider man on the wall & A psycho evil killer spirit following Child's father with a secret desire .Director tried to create some nonsense craziness with this psycho, worst part of the movie. goes to end in a diff. way rather than Happy ending !! which is not enough to save it!!

once a wise man said A Bad can Ruin your day ! so watch it at your on RISK

Strengths: In a post-Paranormal Activity world, the haunted house genre can feel oversaturated. Insidious did a good job twisting on the formula, kind of the same way Paranormal Activity did. Instead of a typical haunted house, it's a person who is haunted. The film does good job playing up the scares, providing a good blend of frightening with the creepy. The use of the upbeat music that the demon enjoyed was flat out unsettling. Rose Byrne (Renai) was a solid screen queen, while Patrick Wilson (Josh) got the better stuff to work with and did admirable in the role. The standout scene was the séance, which looked great and had a terribly creepy vibe to it.

Weaknesses: As usual with horror movies, there's just so many that tropes and clichés are found often. That's the case here. While there are good ideas sprinkled in, a lot of the scare attempts feel too familiar to stand out. The characters were well-acted, but don't have enough depth to make the viewer care about what happens to them. In fact, you may find yourself being okay with Josh being in peril. Steven (Leigh Whannell, who also wrote the film) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) were two characters that felt out of place. They were supposed to be comic relief, but instead stuck out like sore thumbs.

Overall: This is a pretty good horror movie, filled with some cool ideas. Unfortunately, some things don't click and it relies on too many tropes to be anything special.

It was a good time...the 1st and 2nd act was pretty good but the 3rd act was bit less scary (my opinion).... Should have been great but still entertaining and scary....

Even when the film itself doesn't shine on something in particular, it has been one of the most scary films I have watched. It makes probably the best use of "jump off your seat" scenes of any movies I can recall, plus the setup is made with a realistic approach rather than fictional arguements.

Not since "The Shining" has a horror movie been so stylishly scary. It's downright terrifying.

creepy as hell, Insidious is atmospheric... in a horror way!! James Wan knows how to make a good shocking horror film. Visiting the most creepy and strange places/states in the entire universe... our minds mixed with our fears. 4.5/5

A fun, scary movie, Insidious is a surprisingly very well directed film with some great cinematography and good editing. The characters are surprisingly well developed and the film has plenty of good scares.

Após iniciarem a bem-sucedida franquia, Saw (2004-), o diretor James Wan e o argumentista Leigh Whannell voltam com um projeto mais tenebroso e inquietante. Insidious brinca com os clichés do género e consegue subverter as expetativas cena após cena. Um filme que apesar de inspirado nos clássicos, tem um sabor muito particular. Para os fãs, é como se fosse uma apresentação de técnicas de filmes de terror, algo que este século está a precisar, visto que tem apostado no choque fácil e imagens grotescas.

A história é sobre uma casa assombrada nos moldes de Poltergeist (1982). Josh e Renai (Patrick Wilson e Rose Byrne) acabaram de se mudar para uma nova casa e coisas estranhas começam a acontecer. Livros fora do sítio e sons bizarros são alguns dos primeiros sintomas de que algo não está certo, mas o derradeiro evento acontece quando os médicos não conseguem decifrar clinicamente o inexplicável coma de Dalton (Ty SimpkinsI), um dos seus 3 filhos. Os barulhos e visões começam a deixar Renai louca e implora a Josh para que mudem de novo de casa. Mas a mudança apenas ampliou o terror e medidas ortodoxas têm de ser tomadas.

O filme prima pelo timing e qualidade dos seus sustos. Tensão dramática é a chave que garante os calafrios nos momentos certos, algo semelhante ao inventivo Paranormal Activity (2007) de Oren Peli - que também ajudou na produção deste projeto. Wan desenvolve as cenas de forma a serem capitalizadas surpreendente e subtilmente, com auxílio de um design de som refinado. David M. Brewer e John R. Leonetti captam imagens que convidam a ser inspecionadas ao pormenor, e a falta de vivacidade nas cores adiciona à natural atmosfera sombria que a direção de fotografia procura atingir.

Claro que nada disto seria eficiente se as personagens não vendessem o terror das circunstâncias. Renai é muito bem interpretada por Rose Byrne, uma mãe confusa e aterrorizada e Patrick Wilson representa com segurança Josh, um pai compreensivo e em negação perante a situação. A sua relação é dinâmica e o drama familiar que se estabelece é outro ponto a ter em conta. Whannell também tem créditos de atuação e em conjunto com Shaye e Sampson formam uma equipa de caça fantasmas equipada à medida. As personagens oferecem-nos uma perspetiva diferente desta obra que até então estava deliciosa.

Não é que prejudiquem a experiência, mas entram na secção menos favorável. Pois o que impede este filme de ser altamente marcante no século XXI é o facto do terceiro ato ser algo ímpar em qualidade quando comparado ao terrífico primeiro ato. Abandonamos o conto fantasmagórico e entramos numa série de cenas de exposição com demónios possuídos à mistura. A qualidade decresce à medida que a máquina de fazer fumo cria o ambiente de uma dimensão paralela. Além de não ser convincente, origina um conjunto de cenas que parecem pertencer a outro filme na totalidade.

Nos últimos 5 minutos redime-se e acaba com a promessa de que vai haver mais. E ainda bem! Insidious promete emocionar, arrepiar e gravar imagens perversas no teu cérebro, um conto assombroso que me roubou horas de sono e me envolveu na sua escuridão.

7,8/10

Insidious is one of the scariest movies I have ever seen. It does somewhat mix The Exorcist & Paranormal Activity, but James Wan brings in a great new direction to the horror genre with stuff that will make you jump out of your seat. I also give praise to the main cast and the soundtrack as they were able to make this feel so realistic and terrifying. Also, there is some comedy for you to enjoy in this movie to calm you down, so there's that. This is one of the best horror films ever made.
Grade: A+
