This is the second project involving horror where Barbara Hershey stars in, after The Entity (1982). In that film, Carla Moran (Hershey) is pursued by an evil being. Curiously, in this movie, her son Josh, played by Patrick Wilson, is pursued by an evil being. See more »
(at around 52 mins) The first time Elise and her crew enter Dalton's room, the light switch just inside the door is a regular Decora® on/off switch. When they later set up to try to communicate with Dalton in his room (at around 1h 1 min), the light switch has changed to a circular dimmer switch, presumably to serve Elise's line to dim the lights.

The film Insidious has done something many horror movies have failed to do recently, and that is to be scary.
Insidious has a lot of really intense moments that scare, and then grab hold of you. Its not entirely made up of "make you jump" scenes, which it does have, but scenes with genuine horror.
Insidious has taken a risk with doing something original, and It works here for them. Without giving anything away the movie does not just talk about whats scary, or show the the aftermath of something going on in a room that you can only hear until its over and the door magically unlocks. Insidious shows you whats scary, and quite often reminds you whats there, and waiting in the dark.
