Kaitlyn, an emergency room nurse, who is tending to a young stabbing victim, is accidentally electrocuted by the defibrillator that is used in an effort to save the woman's life. Almost immediately, Kaitlyn starts to experience the victim's memories. She turns to family, friends, and the police, but no one takes her seriously. She decides that she must take it upon herself to try to solve the crime, or risk the terrifying visions ending in her own sanity being at stake. Ultimately, Kaitlyn teams up with the detective on the case and weaves her way through the victim's past, to discover not only the brutal truth, but also some very unexpected lessons about life, love, sorrow, and forgiveness along the way.
Filmed at the abandoned Linda Vista Community Hospital in Boyle Heights, which has been listed as one of the most haunted sites in Los Angeles. The hospital was shuttered for twenty years following a string of lawsuits connected to the place's unexpectedly high death rates. The hospital has also been the site of several televised paranormal investigations, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. See more »

We got vultures circling here. Lacs to the chest, neck, hands, shoulder - take your pick.
How many times was she stabbed?
She's lost too much blood.
Jed! Need a large bore IV, stat!
Neighbors watched it happen, and no one even called the cops.

As I read some of the reviews of the movie InSight, I was rather confused as to why anyone would write reviews which discuss how "the story is going nowhere" and how " the plot is very simple to figure out as the defining moment is the very beginning of the movie" etc. when they admit to only watching 15 or so minutes of the film. I think had they continued to watch, they would have discovered that simplicity is not a word one would associate with this movie, and the unfolding layers of the film definitely take it somewhere. What is most refreshing about the film is that the viewer is brought to a place of ambiguity, and I have always found that which is ambiguous to be the most interesting. After 15 minutes however, one would fail to see this development.
Another refreshing aspect of the film is the beautiful, young actress Angeline-Rose Troy. Although her dialog is limited, her gestures and expressions speak to her innate talent, and I kept wanting to see more of her in the film.
