The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Insidious (2011)


Director: James Wan
Starring: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey

A couple thinks their house is haunted until their son falls into a coma like state. Then they realize the haunting is something much more.

My Take:
A creepy first half takes an unexpected but refreshing turn from the normal haunted house story. I have a slight problem with the final five minutes and predictable final act, but it doesn't ruin the movie. A great mood and setting combined with solid acting makes this a very enjoyable tale.

Rating: So Good
