Goofs

(at around 28 mins) When the alarm goes off and Josh runs downstairs the front door is wide open and the porch beyond with no screen-door, something that was present earlier when he opened the door to look outside after the knocking. After he has gone around the house checking everything out and the alarm goes off again he closes the front door. The next scene is an exterior shot of the house and there is clearly a screen door present again. See more »

So scary....
2 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw a preview for this movie, I knew it looked like it had potential. It had been a while since I saw a decent scary movie so I was looking forward to it. I went into it expecting some scares but nothing too bad. Wrong. This movie scared me out of my wits. I don't think I have ever jumped more during any other scary movie. The audience was spooked too. I saw many other people jumping out of their seats and even heard a few actual screams.

What I loved about this movie was that it actually tries to scare you, not gross you out. The images are frightening for sure. Insidious doesn't waste any time trying to creep you out. The scares already start with the opening credits. I sure was not expecting this to be one of the scariest movies i've seen but it lives up to that. That being said, I don't think I'd have the guts to see it again!
