Review: Insidious

A young boy lies asleep in his bed when suddenly the shadow of a woman crosses by the window, momentarily blocking the moonlight from entering the child’s room. The jingly pianos and strings of Joseph Bishara’s chilling score violently erupt into a fit of terror as the title Insidious fills the screen. And so begins the latest horror movie from director James Wan (Saw) and producer Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity). One of the finest and flat-out scariest movies to come out of America in years, Insidious may be old-fashioned, but it’s still a compelling fright factory that, quite literally, sent shivers up my spine.

I need that score, by the way. It was so good. Shame it won't get taken seriously for award consideration like it may have once upon a time... dear Joseph Bishara and FilmDistrict: make this happen!
