Nope I disagree

I f-ing loved it!!!!
It was soooooo much fun and atmosphere was awesome!
The 2nd half was not like Poltergeist at all, with the older dimension parts.

Each to their own :)
I already got it on pre-order for the US bluray.

We'll be setting up official threads and more for Insidious on Cult Labs so I'm looking forward to some good debate on here. It's very cheesy but great fun - think Amityville meets Dreamscape meets Jeepers Creepers would be my take. :pop2:

I saw it last night and enjoyed it. It was a pity that the majority of scares relied on the loud smashing of hands on a piano but there were a couple of genuinely spooky moments and an attempt to contemporise a number of themes that we've seen before (as seen in the original Nightmare on Elm St, and Poltergeist, for example).

The fact that there isn't a general luv for this is a puzzle to me, and I'm as jaded as they come, tho by no means perfect, i'ts still a great old school spooky-cheeseorama. One of my faves of the modern wave, and to those who haven't seen it... Do, simple as that. If you have and don't like it, that's cool too. But if they do a sequel, the first thing is kill off the comedy ghost hunters.

Insidious: Official Thread



A global box office smash thanks in no small part to unprecedented critical acclaim and overwhelmingly positive word-of-mouth from cinemagoers who delighted in being scared witless by its supernatural shocks, the year’s scariest movie, Insidious, comes to DVD and Blu-Ray on 12th September 2011, giving thrill-seeking horror fans the opportunity to take the terror home.

Directed by James Wan, written by Leigh Whannell (together, the co-creators of the “Saw” movies) and produced by Oren Peli, Steven Schneider, and Jason Blum (the team responsible for “Paranormal Activity”), Insidious stars Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) and Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class; Bridesmaids) in a chilling ghost story that has been hailed as “utterly terrifying” (Zoo), “unnervingly creepy” (Sunday Express), “nerve-shredding” (The Sun) and, in a Five Star review as “so scary I was whimpering in sheer terror” (Robbie Collins, News Of The World).

Eschewing the gross-out, “how much can you endure?” torture porn principles of many recent horror hits in favour of a return to the traditional and much more subtle method of thrilling the audience by playing on people’s natural fears of the dark and the unknown, Insidious, like other horror classics such as “Poltergeist” and “The Exorcist”, is a welcome reminder of how much fun it can be to be absolutely terrified by a movie.

The story concerns Josh (Wilson) and Renai Lambert (Byrne), a happily married couple recently moved into a new suburban home with their three young children. When their eldest son, Dalton, inexplicably falls into a coma his condition coincides with the start of a series of disturbing events that defy any rational explanation. The ghostly goings on suggest a sinister supernatural presence is at work in the house, one that is intent on tearing the Lambert family apart. Forced to seek unconventional help to protect themselves and their children, Josh and Renai are awakened to the terrifying truth – it’s not the house that’s haunted.

Co-starring Barbara Hershey (Black Swan), Angus Sampson (Spirited), Lin Shaye (2001 Maniacs: Field Of Screams), Ty Simpkins (Revolutionary Road) and Andrew Astor (The Hangover),Insidious is “a classy and chilling horror tale” (Sunday Mirror) and “one of the scariest, most entertaining, enjoyable horror-watching experiences in years” (

Insidious (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£15.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) by Momentum Pictureson 12th September 2011. Special Features include: Horror 101: The Exclusive Seminar; On Set With Insidious; Insidious Entities.

When I was a kid, it was movies like Poltergeist that really got me into horror. A kind of soft launch, with all the sadism removed and replaced with nightmare inducing atmosphere.

Insidious is the same kind of thing. Don't get me wrong, I like a torrent of splatter, but a lot of modern horror movies are too downbeat and grim for me. I tend to like my twisted films to be antiques. When it comes to new movies, there's enough real horror in the world so I prefer some escapist spooks.
