Insidious

Today we went to see Insidious as part of my Birthday Celebration Weekend Spectacular.  We went to the Wyomissing theater since Steve has some sort of weird popcorn bucket that allows him to get cheap refills.

So anyway, the movie was pretty good.  I went into it expecting it to basically be Paranormal Activity 3, which would have been fine since I really enjoyed both 1 and 2.  But that's not quite the way things went.  The first half of the movie was very similar to the Paranormal Activities in that the scary things were only hinted at and everything was jumpy and tense.  But the second half was more full-on horror movie with the ghosts and demons and whatnot shown in full view on screen.  Which was fine, but again, not really what I was expecting.  Parts of it were pretty funny, this second half of the movie.  Not sure if that was on purpose or not.  The first half was rather depressing when it wasn't being scary.

I'd suggest seeing this movie if you enjoyed the Paranormal Activities movies, but don't expect it to be exactly the same.  And as such, don't expect it t be quite as good.  Unless you're also into typical horror movies, in which case this might be just your thing.
