Right, on the weekend Anthony and I decided to watch a scary film. We chose Insidious (2010), which has a 6.8 rating on IMDb, I think that's a pretty fair statement. As a horror movie buff this one made me jump quite a bit and played on my mind afterwards. In saying this it wasn't the really messed up bits of the film but this old lady...
As the film went on it just got silly! Apparently sprits get into your body when you have an 'outer body experience'?! There's a scene when they have a sort of... Séance, I never knew that a gas mask was needed for this! The effects are good although not realistic (if that makes any sense) from a graphics viewpoint in my opinion they are pretty good. Comparing these effects to Freddy Kruger (2010) in the blood and general looks of characters, the realistic factor isn't there in Insidious.
I feel like I'm ranting, but all in all if you fancy a good scare one night I think this would be a fantastic option, just be prepared for a little sillyness in the second half of the film. Even though I feel the film had it's down sides, horror films seem to be few and far between lately especially in the coming year and you have to take what you can get. Personally I think that nothing compares to a classic horror film Halloween being on my one of my favourites alongside A nightmare on Elm street. If you are a wimp with scary films I wouldn't reccommend that you watch Insidious as it's a jumpy one and little bit of a mind boggler.
If you do decide to brave it, let me know what you think guys :D
