However, the opening was more about you identifying with the characters and getting to know them better. I was really rather bored about 15-20 minutes into it. There's quite a bit of foreshadowing in the beginning, however.
Then things start getting creepy. Typical poltergeist happenings, followed by several other scaries and a whole lot of creepy. Some awkward long dialogue scenes later in the movie with extreme close-ups on the actors faces really killed the mood. Still, the creepy factor really added up and startled everyone who was watching it with me, including myself. A for effort.
Unfortunately, like most horror movies. Once you hit the second half of the movie, it all starts going downhill from there. The make up for the main "ghost" was absolutely terrible and didn't illicit any fear. In fact, it was so bad, that you couldn't help but roll your eyes as to how bad the creature design was. The scary ghost old woman had the best make up of the bunch and was the scariest of them all, but she only shows up in a few scenes.
Essentially, this movie is not as scary as one might hope. Its best moment was when the ghost was walking outside the house on the second floor and then suddenly it appeared inside the house and attacked the woman. THAT was scary, but is unfortunately, the ONLY scary part of this movie.
This movie really could have knocked it out of the park. The editing, the shots, the atmosphere, everything was extremely well executed and definitely copied some of the scariest movies of our time. But once the second half with the psychic rolls around, it all goes down hill from there and makes you wonder, just what the hell happened? It's almost as if a different director or writer took over and threw the movie into the garbage. The second half of the movie is an absolute waste, and ruins what could have been an incredible, scary movie.
You might get some enjoyment out of this movie if you watch the first half, but feel free to turn it off once the second half shows up.
Insidious is an amazing horror film worth watching with an open mind. Go in with low expectations, and you'll possibly leave surprised. I highly recommend watching Insidious. If you have to buy it or stream it on Netflix, it's definitely worth your time!
