It’s not wholly original, but it works because the people involved **make** it work, first and foremost, James Wan.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Tiptoe Through the Tulips.
Insidious is directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannell. It stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey, Lin Shaye, Andrew Astor and Leigh Whannell. Music is scored by Joseph Bishara and cinematography by John R. Leonetti.
The team behind “Saw” and “Dead Silence” bring us “Insidious”, one of the finest exponents of the haunted house movie in the modern era. Of course that doesn’t count for much with those not particularly struck by the formula, but it does seem to be one of the very few horror sub-genre movies to come out with better than average appraisals.
Of course it’s not perfect, few films, especially in horror world, can stand up and come through unscathed by critics and fans alike, yet for the like minded adults who can set the mood and channel themselves into the boo jump and creepy atmosphere world wrung out by Wan and Whannell, then this is the bomb.
Much has been made of the shift in the last third, where the film brings in Astral Projection as its reasoning for the pant soiling previously unleashed. Undeniably the film runs away with itself, goes too far and the last 15 minutes are a chaotic mess of bold ideas and inadequate staging. However, it’s interesting to note how often the haunted house movie in recent times gets accused of not bringing something new to the table, something thrown at the wonderful “Woman in Black” that followed “Insidious”down the pipe. Here the makers offer up something different, true, it hasn’t worked in the way they or the hardened genre fans would have liked, but personally I found on second viewing it is forgivable. It’s like riding your favourite Big Dipper, you enjoy the spins and upside down scream moments, but just tolerate the flat standard drive stretches of track while your heart tries to steady its beat.
When “Insidious” is hitting its heights it’s utterly thrilling and unnerving, paced to perfection, it builds from whispered voices on a baby monitor to entities invading the home of the poor Lambert family. The mystery element is strong, just what do they want? Why is son Dalton in a coma but the medical boffins have no idea why? How come the entities have followed the Lambert’s even when they move house? The latter of which is refreshing to see in the screenplay, it’s a logical move but so often it’s not done in other horror movies. The jumps are nicely placed throughout and a number of scenes are so freaky they get under your skin and stay there for some time – seriously, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to listen to “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” again without my blood being chilled. The use of photographs and mirrors bring the goose flesh to the skin, while Lin Shaye’s arrival as the paranormal physic, and the subsequent use of a gas mask, keep things ticking on the freaky deaky scale (though once the gas mask scene hits it’s where the pic slightly falls away).
It borrows ideas and takes its tonal cues from other horror movies, definitely, and the second half doesn’t live up to the promise of the first; hell I’ll even concede that a certain entity is badly designed, but it does have something new to offer the formula, it’s also well performed by the cast, that itself is a rarity. It hasn’t resonated with all, but it was a monster hit at the box office, making nearly $85 million in profit. The market for a good haunted house spooker is always open, so Insidious, in spite of its second half irks, sits in the top draw with the best of them. 8/10
Very suspenseful and scary
This film is about a suburban couple dealing with the fright of living in a haunted house, and their son suddenly having fallen into a coma.
“Insidious” is such a great supernatural thriller. It does not require gore or sudden loud noises to scare. All the scare is the psychological atmosphere created by masterful filmmaking. The plot is amazingly suspenseful and engaging. It makes you scared, ill at ease and on edge all the time.
I really enjoyed “Insidious”, which is something rather unusual as I normally do not like scary movies. If there is a sequel, which there could very well be, I would watch it!
“How did the voice of reason become the bad guy here?”
In checking the user ratings for this film, I’m finding that my initial suspicions about younger viewers hailing this film as one of the ‘scariest of all time’ to be based on age. I’m over sixty, and I saw “The Exorcist” during it’s original release in 1973. Let me tell you, that was one scary flick. My son, who’s thirty five thought this film was right up there in the fright department, but I wound up pretty much ho-humming my way through the entire thing. So my theory here is that one’s susceptibility to being manipulated by a film’s gimmicks decreases with age.
There are other things working against the film as well. For one, the tone and mood of the set up was filmed too colorfully for a horror film. Virtually all of the scenes occurred during daylight hours, so any attempt at suspense was dissipated by lack of atmosphere. There were a couple of well placed cryptic elements like the misplaced box of sheet music and the bloody hand print, but their impact seemed negligible in the larger scheme of things.
When the theme turned to astral projection and out of body experience, I felt I was watching one of those Sci-Fi cable channel documentaries, thereby relegating the story to a ghost hunters exercise rather than a horror flick. Turning the principal disbeliever (Patrick Wilson as Josh Lambert) into an active participant in the demon hunt seemed sort of contrived, and the disturbing finale was a little too late to save the picture over all. Inattentive viewers might miss the nuance of the final minutes of the story; for me that was one of the few hooks that forced me to think about what had happened.
One interesting observation as I discussed this film with my son was his reaction to the background music provided by Tiny Tim with his version of ‘Tiptoe Through the Tulips’. When Herbert Khaury recorded that song it was nothing more than a novelty tune done in falsetto that made Top 40 in most markets. Because of it’s use in the picture, my son thought it was a truly creepy song and couldn’t reconcile himself to my description of it’s origin. For my part, I tried to see it his way and in a way I guess he could have been right, but then I’d picture Tiny Tim and the whole thing fell apart.
Followers of ‘out of body’ science will probably find the ideas explored here to be presented well enough to validate some of their own ideas about the concept. For myself, I thought the depiction of the demon was rather well done, but it was too little too late to make the picture truly horrifying. The effectiveness of the ending will probably be lost on most viewers as well, unless you take the time to rewind the last couple of minutes like I did trying to make sense of what happened and who or what made it out of The Further.
