Goofs

When Elise first sees the demon, she describes him to Specs as having eyes that are "like two black holes," and has him draw a picture as such. Also, Dalton's picture of the demon is that of a red face and two completely dark spots for eyes. However, when the demon appears in person, his eyes have extremely constricted pupils, and at other times the eyes of a cat. See more »

So scary....
2 April 2011 | by nicki9112See 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!
