From the writer/director team that brought you the original SAW, James Wan and Leigh Whannell, INSIDIOUS is the terrifying story of a family who, shortly after moving, discovers that dark spirits have possessed their home and that their son has inexplicably fallen into a coma. Trying to escape the haunting and save their son, they move again only to realize that it was not their house that was haunted.

The first thing that caught my attention in this movie was the director, James Wan, also director of the first movie of the series Saw (the best in my opinion) and Dead Silence. James Wan always manages to create a gloomy atmosphere that leaves the viewer disturbed and restless during the movie . The second thing was a phrase I heard during the trailer for "It’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s your son." Stories about haunted houses are great, but my favorite theme is "haunted people," because you can’t run away from the ghost haunting you.

The story is quite original, note that it is very difficult for a writer to use new elements because there is only so much you can use when telling a horror story and we have seen too many to find something brand new.

The film is very dark as in Dead Silence, the sound effects contribute a lot in the scenes that make you jump on your chair and the women scream. Who doesn’t like a “cheap scare”?

The story starts off slow and will build the tension in the viewer's head with objects moving, doors opening and closing, whispers, etc., when the atmosphere is already created, the best part starts. The acting could have been better, but for a low budget I say it was great.
