  • Excerpt: It always intrigues me (or perplexes me) as to the sheer amount of films that either compare themselves to or claim to be the next “Exorcist.” Let’s face it, “The Exorcist” was one of the most original and genuinally horrific films to come around and, odds are, it’ll never be replaced. The same goes for other landmark films like “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Citizen Kane” or “The Wizard of Oz.

  • Excerpt: I remember when Saw became a phenomenon, reading an interview with Leigh Whannell in which he enthused about his love of horror films. How much you enjoy Insidious is going to depend on whether you think he has lovingly paid homage to the films he loves or whether he has simply stolen some of the best elements from those films; because this film is chock full of references and tributes to other films such as The Amityville Horror, Poltergeist, A Nightmare On Elm Street...

  • Summary: Here’s the thing. When was the last time that a horror movie was scary? I don’t mean one that grossed you out or made you a little jumpy. I mean when was the last time a film sent those creepy little goosebumps up your spine and left a lump in your stomach? If you’re having trouble answering that question, don’t be alarmed. You are not suffering the early signs of memory loss. You can’t remember because it’s been decades since that’s been true.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: From the makers of 'Saw' and 'Paranormal Activity,' we have a surprisingly fun and spooky haunted-house thriller, full of eerie atmosphere and nicely setup frightful jumps. The Blu-ray debuts with an excellent audio and video presentation that perfectly serves up the scares, but the supplemental collection is sadly lacking. With Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey, and Lin Shaye, the horror flick still serves up just the right mood for a scary movie night.

Blu-ray Review: Insidious

Sound & Vision Magazine
15 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Led Zeppelin epitomized testosterone-fueled rock & roll — heavy metal at its finest. But that didn’t mean the band couldn’t go mellow once in a while (as in “Going to California”).

Insidious (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
15 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Horror, the undying (pun intended) genre. Like the ocean, horror comes and goes in waves: monsters, zombies, slashers, demons, madmen and ghosts. The most durable of all of these is the haunted house theme where sprits and other malevolent troublemakers move around the furniture and cause general havoc to someone's decorating skills. Sony's Insidious , now available on Blu-ray and DVD, takes it one step further.

Insidious Review

  • Excerpt: You know what are great? Movie attics. They sort of exist as their own little entity in movies, a place where a family has a bunch of old stuff just because it’s old. Nothing up there really reflects anything in terms of personality, or even whether or not there are kids involved. It’s just old and cobwebby (?). You can also be sure that if it’s used in any great capacity, it’s horror movie ground zero.

Insidious (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: James Wan and Leigh Whannel continue to rock forward in the horror genre.  Some may try to front and say that Insidious isn’t scary at all.  I say nonsense.  There’s no need for posturing.  I would suggest turning off all the lights, lock the doors, bolt the windows, and get ready to enter “The Further” realm.  If you make it back in one piece get at me and we’ll talk about how wrong you were…muahahahahaha!

  • Conclusion: Insidious is a good entry to the class of horror that values suspenseful thrills over gore. It comes apart a bit at the end, but everything that leads up to it is unusually sound by the genre's standards and as terrifying as any modern movie. The Blu-ray offers good picture quality, a great soundtrack, and three valuable featurettes. On either format, the movie definitely merits a look.
