Insidious (2010) Review:
Despite raising a few terribly bad critics (which to this day I still do not understand), Insidious has mostly be hailed as a brilliant movie. The main characteristic that has been attributed to this movie is that it is scary, and for once, I am happy to confirm that it is. While there are a few jump-scares, the strength of Insidious is that it manages to immerse you into a really creepy world filled with hostile ghosts and a terrific demon. And as if that wasn’t enough, the movie throws a child alone into that terrible world. That was enough for me to get me totally captivated. While I usually cheer for the bad guy, this movie really made me fear for the child and I found myself really hoping that he will escape!
The movie is shot beautifully, almost in an artistic way. The alternative world is really beautifully designed. I especially liked how the movie turned Tiny Tim’s song “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” into that really creepy song. One of the strengths of Insidious is that, where most scary movies let you play with your imagination assuming that your mind will create the scary bits, Insidious has the balls to show the demon! In most ghost/demon films, the fear somehow disappears as soon as the villain is shown, but here it works just fine and the chill that this demon gives is brilliant.
So congratulations to Insidious for succeeding where so many movies failed. Finally, we can get scared and see some nice monster in the same flick! To me, this film is the horror masterpiece that settles James Wan as one of the most promising modern horror directors.
