Insidious

By DAVID WEINER

July 17, 2013

With Patrick Wilson reteaming with director James Wan for The Conjuring, Insidious is an obvious choice for our list. This haunted happening from the Paranormal Activity producers and Saw director Wan finds a young couple (Wilson and Rose Byrne) grappling with the fact that their house isn't haunted – their comatose little boy is -- and in jeopardy of being trapped in a mysterious realm. The film is clearly inspired by Poltergeist and The Shining, but has enough originality and genuine scares to qualify as a worthy thrill ride.
