Insidious – Movie 50 of 365

28 Feb

insidiousThere are really three kinds of horror movies I like, zombie, schlocky slasher, and the kind like this that make being alone in the house nerve wracking. At first I thought this movie was going to be another Paranormal Activity which bored me to tears. This starts off kinda slow and predictable. A family moves into a new house and slightly odd but not too frightening things start to happen. To be a little different, in this movie one of the children falls into a unexplained coma. After that the incidences ramp up. Amazingly the family does something smart, they move. Unfortunately it doesn’t help things.

They seek help from a paranormal investigator and this is when the movie hits its stride. Not only is the psychic not stereotypical, she very straightforward. Her assistants are a bit of comic relief and really how most of us would act if saddled with this job. The otherside entities are interesting and creepy without depending so much on the jump and loud bang factor.

I wish the climatic scenes were a bit stronger but they was probably a run time issue. Also even though some of the twists were foreseeable, I still enjoyed there reveal.
