    "now this is a legendary franchise! insidious is a work of art from cinematography to sound editing to the levels of acting that the artistse gave away for this film. I was a bit suerprised taht this got the last spot on the list but then again, it was hauntingly creative and disturbing. I'd recommend this and the rest of sequels to thrill-seekers out there."
