From the creators of "Paranormal Activity" and "Saw," INSIDIOUS stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Barbara Hershey. The terrifying story of family members who discover that dark spirits may possess their new home, INSIDIOUS could prove to be this generation's "Poltergeist." Josh and Renai have just moved into their beautiful new home with their three young children. As they are still unpacking, the family begins to witness odd things occurring in the house – strange noises coming from the children's bedrooms and items mysteriously moving from room to room. Things get even worse when the couple's oldest son Dalton falls in the attic, bumps his head, and plunges deep into an inexplicable coma. Meanwhile, the hauntings escalate and Renai begins seeing the ghost they believe is terrorizing their house. Eventually, the family decides to move, only to discover it wasn't their house that was haunted; it was their son. When Josh and Renai hire a psychiatrist and a group of paranormal scientists to help get their son back, they learn about Dalton's ability to astral project himself and realize that he is trapped in a paranormal hell known as "The Further," where he is tormented by the wicked spirit that captured him. A spine-tingling thriller of a film, INSIDIOUS also carries with it just the right amount of horror-class humor, greatly enhancing its entertainment value and securing its place among the recent wave of cult horror films. - M.M.
