Insidious Trailer

"It's not the house that's haunted…" Even though we just saw the first teaser a few weeks ago, FilmDistrict has debuted a full-length trailer via Blastr for James Wan's scary new horror-thriller Insidious, which I saw in Toronto and have been raving about ever since. Insidious is a part haunted house flick, part demon possession thriller, part Poltergeist, and even part Sam Raimi-throwback, but it's such a damn good horror flick. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne star as parents of a few kids, one of which gets trapped in a coma, but it might be more than that. We highly suggest watching this trailer for Insidious, it will creep you out!

Watch the official theatrical trailer for James Wan's Insidious:

A family tries prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose son in a realm called The Further forever.

Insidious is directed by acclaimed horror filmmaker James Wan, who previously directed the original Saw film (both the short and feature) from 2004, and followed that up with Dead Silence and Death Sentence. The screenplay was written by Wan's filmmaking friend Leigh Whannell, who wrote the original Saw (and also starred in it) and also wrote Dead Silence. It first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and was picked up by FilmDistrict for distribution. Insidious hits theaters everywhere on April 1st this spring.

    Remember "The Orphan"? I hope that this wont be that.
    • It's not, definitely not, it's about a demon that is after this kid and haunting this family. Insidious is damn good, Orphan is not!

    Big improvement over the first teaser. I like that Paranormal Activity feel that it has. It seems that it's quite a good film judging by the reviews so I'll see it. If i won't like, I'll blame you, Alex. ;))

  • tir na nog
    Looks good,whats that at 1.25?.....personally I thought Orphan was a good film with a brilliant twist.
  • David Banner
    Phew! Not only me who wondered why Darth Maul was in this trailer :)
  • You're all wrong. Nite Owl was in this film :)
  • April80085
    I wanna see it just because of the red demon. It gave me the willies. I hope it's in there more than just a blip from the clip.
  • Okay...this looks like a lot of fun. Bring on the 'jump scares'!
  • Hythr556
    Orphan is a fantastic chiller, underrated. And Vera Fargamia is hot. This however is a muddled mess. In 2 minutes the audience is supposed to know : is this a psycho killer movie? a remake of poltergeist? a ghost story? monster in the closet movie? what? Watching the trailer I couldn't determine the genre of this film. Bad trailer. Movie? I will see this solely because of Rose Byrne.
    • John Doe
      "Orphan is a fantastic chiller, underrated."? Now your done.
  • fem!anon
    Ugh yeah that scared me šŸ˜ Especially Darth Maul ;~;
  • i have no name
    1:25 wtf that was creepy.
  • Alfredo
    Is it my imagination or is Rose Byrne suddenly everywhere? It seems like 2011 is her breakout year..
    • doodeedoowappaw
      I feel like her breakout year was either 2009 or 2010 due to Get Him to the Greek, Knowing, Damages, Adam, etc. lol

  • The screenshot at the top made me watch the trailer. I haven't gotten "What the f*** is that?" out loud to a picture in a while. The trailer's damn good. I like the metronome-o-tension.
  • janky

  • S Page123
    insidious is...everywhere april 1st
  • TumMMM
    This Family will be all dead for they are no match for a Sith!!!
  • Dear God that creeped me out. Trailers don't normally do that to me, but I think I pooped a little.
  • Yoshi
    That demon isn't scary looking at all?it looks like a normal guy with face paint, lame sauce. Everything else looks intense though. Hopefully this isnt just an april fools joke, cuz this looks legit.

    is this Ray Parks' new film?
  • Quazzimotto
    Looks pretty creepy...not sure about from the makers of PA and Saw though. Definitely wait for reviews.
  • Siree
    Yes it's a shocker, good reviews coming thorugh. Some of the guys mention a return of Darth's not. The demon in this movies is a demonic alter-ego of Darth Maul called......Darth Maude, yes, that's Darth Maude. Take note as you will need it when you watch this film to really experience the terror adapted in this film based on some true events.
  • Dd
    I guess Lucas is going to sue them
  • Ogclown15
    This movie looks cool -- a good followup for SAW. If you want to see some scary movies, produced on a song, watch renegade video. These guys are crazy and out there on the edge. Some of their previews have been posted on youtube. Here's one: What do you think?
  • Kevin McC
    is it any good because i like horrors but not EXTREME horrors and am not sure if i want to check it out? is it an EXTREME horror film? :-/ Should it be age 15 or should it be an 18??? How creepy is it? :O
  • Mr.Bubbles
    You say Darth Maul. I say Dremora from OblivionĀ
