Insidious review recorded

Insidious (American version)

Insidious is a horror movie about poltergeist released in 2011. Directed by James Wan and Leigh Whannell – the tandem responsible for the famousSaw franchise, it was designed as a high-class suspense thriller, which scares with its frightening brooding atmosphere rather than with special effects, jumpscares and gore. However, it turned out to be a huge disappointment. Unlike Alfred Hitchcock’s classics of the genre, Insidiousappears a gathering of clichés typical of horror movies.

The plot starts with an average American family moving into a new house. As soon as they settle in, paranormal activities start to occur: things are lost and found, objects seem to move on their own, strange sounds can be heard, dark silhouettes emerge out of nowhere. In the course of the film all these abnormalities appear to be connected with the elder son, Dalton, whose body is possessed by demons. It is evident that the filmmakers tried to bypass the banality of a common haunted house movie by shifting the focus from the house on the boy. However, the film fails to create a really electrifying atmosphere and to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Despite a rather high quality of acting and directors’ efforts to grip the audience’s attention with twists and turns of the story line, I think that Insidious is a completely secondary movie that might please only undemanding cinema goers.
