As Insidious 2 comes out tomorrow (Friday 13th, what larks,) Cookie takes a look back at it's predecessor and what could've been..
Let me start this article with a tale; a tale so scary that you’ll be hiding under your hat forever. It is a tale of two women, a cinema and a film that made them cry (nearly.) Now, a bit of preposition; I don’t like watching scary movies in the cinema because I am forced to face my terror instead of pausing and fast forwarding it at home. I am a big wuss.
So when my sister and I picked Insidious to watch on the big screen, I have no idea what we were thinking. Maybe it was the cocktails beforehand or maybe it was my sister’s persuasive face. But as the lights dimmed in the theatre, I knew we’d regret it. We jumped, we hid and we laughed at each other for whatever crazy sounds were coming out of our terrified lips. But we'd regret it in another way. Because Insidious was both brilliant, scary, and scarily bad.
