Insidious

IT’S NOT THE HOUSE THAT’S HAUNTED.

When their young son falls into a coma, the Lamberts (Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson) begin to notice strange, eerie events that take place in their house.¬†Oh, it‚Äôs obvious that¬†Saw¬†makers James Wan and Leigh Whannell love this stuff ‚Äď and a large share of the audience is also likely to get a kick out of this scary (and amusing) horror flick. In many ways, it is an irresistible homage to many old ghost movies (Poltergeist¬†is one), shot to make it look like a distorted nightmare. The cast is game, especially Lin Shaye as the psychic. However, there‚Äôs nothing original here and the story tends to lag a bit.

2011-U.S. 103 min. Color. Directed by James Wan. Screenplay: Leigh Whannell. Cast: Patrick Wilson (Josh Lambert), Rose Byrne (Renai Lambert), Barbara Hershey (Lorraine Lambert), Ty Simpkins, Andrew Astor, Lin Shaye. 

Trivia: Followed by three sequels, starting with Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013).
