Honestly, there hasn’t been a very good horror film in awhile, until Insidious. It’s the perfect movie to once again scare one enough to be afraid of the dark. If one is into scary movies, one won’t be disappointed. Insidious is about a happy family of five deeply disturbed by the supernatural activity that occurs. At first it’s only weird noises here and there, but it quickly intensifies once their eldest son falls into a mysterious coma that doctors simply can’t explain. As months go by, the boy still hasn’t awoken and it seems as though everything for the family is falling apart. Thinking it was the house filled with evil dark spirits, the family moves. Unfortunately they quickly discover it wasn’t the house that was haunted and the couple is then sets out on a mission to save their son and end the torments the spirits seemed to have caused.
James Wan, the famous director of Paranormal Activity and Saw movies, takes you into a completely different world that many of us dread, and the thing about that is that it’s the unknown. Which makes everything terrifying. This movie will haunt everyone for weeks! I personally have never seen Saw, but I have seen Paranormal Activity. In all honesty I expected Insidious to be as stupid as Paranormal Activity. I was in for a rude awakening. It was far from Paranormal Activity, which was easy to predict. Insidious on the other hand literally had viewers at the edge of their seats throughout the whole movie!
“It was the scariest movie ever!” States sophomore Kenna Salinas. I definitely recommend this movie to those who are down for a scare.
