Insidious is one of those few and far between ghost films that work. The story is centered on a small town family, The Lamberts. The Lamberts move into a new house and slowly but surely the wife, Renai, starts to notice odd things going on such as items being moved or missing completely. In proper ghost movie fashion the husband, Josh, who is hardly home refuses to believe anything out of the ordinary is going on. Not too long after these odd occurrences start to happen, one of the their two sons, Dalton, ends up in an unexplainable coma. Flash forward to 3 months later and Dalton is still in a coma but is now being cared for at home. Those small mysterious happenings previous to Dalton’s coma are now more frequent and escalating in severity. Renai, after many arguments, finally convinces Josh that they need to move and sell their current house.
The Lamberts then move into a new house. However, it seems those odd occurrences and mysterious happenings haven’t stopped but have actually followed the family into the new house. Josh again refuses to believe that something of a supernatural nature is going on even in this newer house. Against Josh’s wishes, Renai calls his mother for help and is referred to a team of paranormal investigators. The team investgates the house and confirms that there is indeed activity of a paranormal nature going on in the house. However, the activity doesn’t have to do with the location of either of the houses, but is centered on the son that is currently in a coma.
There are some great things about this movie and I do have to say that the ‘twist’ of the film is very original and I can’t recall a movie being done about that subject. I’m not going to mention what said ‘twist’ is because that would ruin it for everybody and I don’t want to do that! This movie was very well thought out and it shows. This is a must watch for the Halloween season! Enjoy!
