A movie of its own genre. Insidious is like 2 movies in one. The first half is a introduction to the family. Then the scary stuff starts. Their experiences start as they move into a new house. It starts out as little experiences like books moving, doors opening etc. Then the son Dalton falls off a ladder in the attic and goes into a so called 'acomma'. Now the events really start escalating. Figures are being seen, the house alarms are going off, and then, a bloody hand print on Daltons bed. The family finally has had enough and moves again. But as the ghostly encounters continue to happen at the new house, they decide to call in a psychic and her 2 goof ball assistants. This is when the second movie starts. The psychic tells the parents that Dalton is in some other dimension called 'The Further.' She also tells the parents about the fathers past experiences with a different, witch like demon only seen in photos taken of the father. The father then goes into 'The Further' to save Dalton before a demon possesses him . There he meets many strange demons including the one that haunted him in his childhood. Finally he finds Dalton all chained up and somehow, he magically gets the chains off but now he has to escape Dalton's demon, or, Darth Maul you could call him. But for some reason, the demon is extremely weak and they get away from him easily. As they get back to the house the father comes face to face with the Witch demon. He just tells her to "Go away" and she does, or so we think. The father and son get back into their bodies and regain consciousness. As the family is celebrating the return of Dalton, the father and psychic are talking. For some reason, she takes a photo of him and instead of seeing the father, we see the Witch demon that haunted him as a kid. He then strangles her to death. The last scene of the movie we see the mom, who finds the psychic dead. She finds the picture and finds out her husband is now a demon. She then confronts her husband and the movie ends.
This film was way better then I thought it would be. It was very intense in some parts and I wouldn't recommend it to people who get easily scared.
Is it scary? YES! This movie kept me up for the whole night.
The acting was great. The characters were very smart.
The one thing I don't like in this movie is that they both died in the end.
I am proud to say that this is the scariest movie of 2009
I look forward to the sequel.
This film was hilarious! I have no problem saying that this is the funniest movie i've ever seen.
But dont let your kids see this film! This film is very graphic! 18+
Zach G. did a great job as Alan. He was my favorite!
Honestly, i cannot find anything wrong with this film.
I just half to say, this movie was flat out stupid. Think about it. You watch a video tape. You get a phone call saying "You will die in 7 days."
Then 7 days later, your tv turns on to static and a girl walks out of the TV and kills you.
It wasn't all bad. It was a good thriller.
