Insidious is the new horror film from Australian director James Wan, the co-creator of the SAW franchise, but don’t hold that against him.

This is an good ol’ fashioned haunting, one with a tangible  atmosphere, strong performances and plenty of skin-crawling scares. Initially, you might argue it’s a copy of Poltergiest — indeed, its similarities are many — but Insidious, for better and worse, does eventually stand on its own two feet in the second half.

It’s far from perfect,  but this is the best horror film of the year so far.
