Insidious (PG-13)

Insidious stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne and Ty Simpkins. This fantasy/horror film is about the Lambert’s, a young family that  recently moved into a new home. Renai (Rose Byrne) and Josh (Patrick Wilson) Lambert have the textbook definition of the happy all American nuclear family; the husband and wife and three young children. When an unfortunate tragedy strikes the oldest son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins), the Lambert’s lives begin to spiral out of control. 

 

It has been a great while since I have seen a horror film worth watching, so I was skeptical about whether Insidious would meet my expectations. I must admit, Insidious exceeded my expectations! There were many scenes which made me jump and swallow the urge to scream. Unlike most recent films classified as horror which use buckets of bloods and gore, Insidious actually tries to scare you with the sheer presence of the shock factor opposed to simply grossing you out.

 

Overall, I was pleased with Insidious and I would recommend seeing this film if you are actually looking for a scare.

 

My verdict: 4 stars
