Thoughts on Insidious

Friday, April 1, 2011 4:34 PM By Simon

-A couple (Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson) and their kids are haunted by some fuck-scary shit.

-Please note: I am literally just coming back from the theatre, having seen this with my particularly excitable friend. This tends to make things twice as scary. Note. Also, I am, for once, unsullied by other reviews.

-HOLY SHIT FUCKER FUCK IS THIS MOVIE AWESOME. Sometimes it's lame on purpose, sometimes by accident, and sometimes it's just stupid (but in the best way) but when it comes down to it, it's downright terrifying. The music--some might say an overreliance of, but fuck that, it was perfect, guys.

-And Barbara Hershey shows up like a boss.

-Go see this shit.

You will hear it here first: Barbara Hershey is our generation's Joan Crawford. since both have appeared in their share of horror/camp/B films.

"HOLY SHIT FUCKER FUCK IS THIS MOVIE AWESOME." My thoughts exactly. Everyone should see this in theaters.

And @Paolo, you are spot on.

I definitely want to see this. I'm getting more hype about it the more I read (while avoiding any spoilers). The teams behind Saw and Paranormal Activity teaming up had me interested from the start.

I'm glad to hear it's actually really a scary movie. Not just a startling movie or a gore fest, but one that actually instills terror. As masochistic as it may sound, I miss getting that feeling from movies. It's very few and far between that movies are truly scary like that anymore.

Definitely going to have to watch this soon.

Rob: You amuse me, you fellow, you.

Paolo: And they're lovely and amazing.

French Toast Sunday: With their loudest friends.

Franz: We shall do a live-blog retelling of such DVD epicness and then we shall corner in our closests until I run out of excuses to say 'shall'.

JL: I like to think it's the Inception of horror movies. Just give me a second to figure out why.
