From the makers of "Paranormal Activity" and "Saw" -- yeah, not exactly the greatest selling points for a movie (at least for us) but at least the latest from director James Wan isn't a shaky cam thriller or torture porn flick.
Starring Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson and Barbara Hershey, "Insidious" picked up very strong notices when it premiered in the Midnight Madness strand in Toronto. The plot surrounds a kid in a coma who is haunted by evil spirits and then shit, presumably, gets real freaky. The film will be released through Graham King‘s new Film District label on April 1st and while we can't say we're too excited by this, the teaser is an effective bit of marketing. Check out the film synopsis and spot below. [AICN]
A young family makes the terrifying discovery that the body of their comatose boy has become a magnet for malevolent entities, while his consciousness lies trapped in the dark and insidious realm known as The Further.
