INSIDIOUS BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLSEPTEMBER 15, 2013 In a throwback to old horror, “Insidious” dodges the cheap thrills of modern horror and delves into what disturbs audiences. Quick camera cuts, well constructed audio designs, and a chilling story are enough to cause constant spooks throughout the film. The last portion of the film, set in “another world,” I could have done without, but I appreciate … Read More Quick Review: Insidious (2011)
