The teacher Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) and his wife Renai (Rose Byrne) move with their three children, the boys Dalton (Ty Simpkins) and Foster (Andrew Astor) and the baby Cali, to a big house. When Dalton is exploring the attic, he falls from the ladder and hits the head on the floor. On the next morning, Dalton does not wake up and stays in coma, but the doctors are not able to diagnose his problem.
Three months later, weird things happen in the house and Renai sees apparitions. She is sure that the house is haunted and convinces Josh to move to another house. Sooner Renai sees ghosts in the new house and Josh does not believe in his wife. But his mother Lorraine (Barbara Hershey) tells him that she had also had a vision of a fiend in Dalton's room.
They invite the medium and Lorraine's old friend Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), who brings her team of ghost hunters Specs (Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) to investigate the supernatural phenomenon. Elise explains that Dalton is a traveler with the ability of leaving his physical body and travel in astral projection. Now his spiritual body is lost in a place called Further that is not for the living and entities are gathered trying to get inside his empty physical body. Among these entities there is a demon that needs Dalton's body to cause pain to the others. Further, Lorraine discloses that Josh is also a gifted traveler and must seek out Dalton in Further and bring him back.
"Insidous" is a great horror movie with a spooky supernatural story without gore that is scarier than any slasher. The screenplay is well written and the film has good performances. The cinematography, the edition, make-up and special effects give a frightening atmosphere of nightmare. The surprising conclusion ends with golden key this film. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Sobrenatural" ("Supernatural")
Obs: I bought the Blu-Ray and today (20 Oct 2012) I have just seen it again. "Insidious" is the scariest film that I have seen from 13 August 2011 until today. I found it better than the first time and I also changed my vote to ten.
