Ileana’s Movie Review: Insidious

Alliance Films, IM Global


Starring: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Lin Shaye

Josh (Wilson) and Renai (Byrne) lead a pretty normal life with their three children. Soon after settling in their new home, the eldest son Dalton (Simpkins) slips into a mysterious coma. As the months go by, strange things start happening in the house. Things get bad enough that the family decides to move, but the events don’t stop. That’s when they realize that the problem isn’t the house but their comatose son Dalton. Josh and Renai then turn to paranormal expert Elise (Shaye) and her team to help them save their son.

Of all the movie genres out there, horror is my least favorite. Not because I scare easily (which I don’t) but because horror movies these days are nothing but gory-bloody-boring clichés. Insidious however pays homage to the classic horror films of the sixties that don’t rely on bloody carnage but play on the audience’s fear of the unknown. Written by Leigh Whannell (who penned the first three Saw movies) this movie does not disappoint. It has been a long time since I was this creeped out by a film. I
probably slept all of 45 minutes Friday night. Well done Mr. Whannell, well done.  Grade: A

Trivia: This is the second time Ty Simpkins plays Patrick Wilson’s son.

Rated: PG-13 – For brief strong language, thematic material, violence, terror and frightening images.
