I have been meaning to watch this film for a while but only got reminded recently when they announced a sequel to Insidious, so what did I think about the film then? I liked it, creepy but not necessarily scary, however I did like its unique story and its telling of said story. The acting was good and I liked most of the cast. The film is at its strongest for the first half although the beginning was a bit slow, the last half though went a bit too far for me with the other realm travelling and an exorcism which had the ghosts in a bit too much light. What I liked the most about the beginning was how you didn’t really get to see the big bad demons and that made it creepy, but when that vale is lifted it doesn’t have the same effect, but it doesn’t reveal them in most scenes so I’ll give it a pass.

Just because after watching Event Horizon at the age of 7 I had to go to therapy doesn’t mean you scared me horror films. Oh My God what the hell is that, arghghhhh it’s got me! Where’s my shot gun damn it! OH GOD NOT MY BRAIN…
