Film Review - "Insidious"

The creators of "Saw" are back and proving that if done right, PG-13 horror can be just as scary, if not MORE, than most R rated films today. James Wan & Leigh Whannell make a powerful return to the genre with "Insidious". Full of tension, some actual character development, a solid story and for the first time in a really long time, making a horror movie that's actually scary! "Insidious" is hands down the duo's creepiest & scariest film to date and shows that these two haven't lost their touch, in fact their filmmaking is better and more mature than ever. If you are in search of an old school haunted house film or just an old school horror film in general, look no further. Although the "Saw" series became known for the Traps & Gore, Wan & Whannell prove that you don't need blood & gore to make a great horror film. In short, this is the best thing you could ask for out of these guys at this point in their career and they're letting you know, they're not going anywhere.
Score: 4.5/5
