Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: They're having such a joke on us because there is a ridiculous element to it and one of the things that I think they fall into the trap of showing too much. Horror and being scared is much more effective without actually seeing.
Fresh: Insidious is happy enough with elevating your breathing pattern every now and then, as opposed to choking you outright with one shock after another.
Fresh: While the third act descends into silliness, for the most part this is a superbly crafted and genuinely scary flick that borrows brilliantly from horror classics.
Fresh: Insidious is very much a 21st century modern horror movie, which is to say it's more interested in tricks and scares than 'horror'.
The scariest movie I've ever seen.
If you're tired of the countless horror film duds that are out there and you're looking for a movie that will make you want to sleep with the lights on for a week, look no further. Insidious puts all other scary movies to shame. I was horrified the entire movie. Not only is the movie consistently terrifying, but the storyline is surprisingly elaborate. For those of you who like to be shocked, there is a twist ending as well. When you put together the fantastic storyline and 10 out of 10 scaryness of Insidious, you get the greatest horror film ever made. You won't be disappointed, just terrified.
This movie gets an eight out of ten because, in all honestly, was the only movie that I've seen in the past five years that genuinely scared me, made me feel creeped out, etc. The first half of the movie is an experience of the ghosts and demons inside of the house that the family (mainly the wife) has to deal with. The second half is more like a poltergeist persona. It had extremely creepy scenes that really sent chills down my spine. Some of these things weren't necessarily jumps, but more of, how in the- what did she just- what?!?
Now the best part was the ending in my opinion. I am not going to spoil anything. Even now when I think about it, it gives me chills.
Why didn't the movie get a 10? The "action" scenes could have been directly a little better. They were kind of cheesy and did not add to the fear of the movie. I wish they made it a simple chase instead of what they did do. You'll see what I mean when you watch it. I highly recommend that you do, unless you're too scared. ;)
Scariest film ever!
I've seen them all, don't watch this alone. Camera angles are extremely suggestive, and the main characters are quite realistic
