A Couple Josh (Patrick Wilson) and his wife Renai (Rose Byrne) have 3 children. They’ve just moved into a new house, but strange things are happening. Their son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins) hears a strange noise in the attic. When he goes to investigate, he falls, it’s just a bump, but shortly later he’s in a coma. The doctors can find no reason, but it’s as if he is not home. But it could be something much more insidious at work, something pure evil.

Insidious is one heck of a horror film. This is definitely one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a long, long time. Sure it depends on loud sounds and sudden flashes to startle you, but it also is a very creepy story. The folks behind this movie are from Saw and Paranormal Activity. They bring the same levels of horror and terror from these films, but it’s a very well crafted film. It has the supernatural tension of Paranormal Activity, but with well edited, beautifully filmed camera work. No shaky handhelds to make you sick. The suspense is awesome, and it builds and builds to the final climax. The acting is excellent. There are a few flaws. The film takes to an astral plane called The Further. This is not very well developed and is underused. It could have been better. But for the most part, everything you would want in a horror film is here. I saw the film in a theater full on teenagers. Two boys sitting near me at one point screamed and tossed a box of popcorn and drinks about 20 feet in the air. The mess landed about 3 rows up. Now that’s a horror film. This movie made me, one who rarely jumps in films likes this fly out of my seat a couple times! If you like the horror genre, it’s hard to find a scarier scary movie than this one! Enjoy!
