What the Critics say

Hollywood Reporter Guilty-fun exorcist flick
Christy Lemire Suspense with a smile
Pam Grady With a perfectly scary setup, a bang up opening and a great cast, Insidious could have been something special: a horror movie that actually horrifies without resorting to gore. Instead, thanks to too many cheap jokes and a bit of silly music, it falls short.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Insidious is an affectionate visit to the Haunted House Movie, a genre that seems classic in contrast to Queasy-Cam gorefests.
Martin Morrow While the early part of the movie achieves a genuinely ominous vibe, the mood vanishes like a ghost as soon as the plot descends into paranormal hokum.
C. Fuchs While Insidious has its moments, I just wish the third act had been tighter, wiser and kept our imagination in play rather than spoon-feeding us the obvious and not as truly frightening scares.
Tomatometer Aside from a shaky final act, Insidious is a very scary and very fun haunted house thrill ride.
