Film: Insidious

Things start to go bump in the night (and during the day for that matter) in the Lambert family home. These events culminate with their son falling into an inexplicable coma.

Now that the Saw movie franchise is apparently over creators Leigh Whannell and James Wan had to come up with something new. Unfortunately if this is the best they can come up with they'll need to head back to the drawing board.

It all starts promisingly enough as Renai (Rose Byrne) begins to hear strange noises coming through the baby monitor and writer Whannell, who also stars, should have kept to a haunted house story.

Instead we soon veer off into Demon and possession territory and although there are some creepy moments the silliness just feels like unintentional comedy that shouldn't have a place in this type of film.

Hopefully Whannell and Wan will return to the serial-killer genre that they revived so spectacularly with the original Saw.
