JAMES WAN IS BACK! After his auspicious and marvelous debut film SAW he floundered with his last two outings, Dead Silence and Death Sentence. What’s interesting is how SAW gets shoehorned in as a horror flick but watching it a second time recently, it teeters on that edge of horror and thriller and isn’t enough to fully be considered one or the other. So it makes sense that James would be conflicted with his next two follow-ups. With Dead Silence he went straight for the horror genre and with Death Sentence, the thriller. Neither of them really worked. Now, with his fourth film, he is firmly in the horror zone and the result is staggeringly effective.
INSIDIOUS IS A HORROR DE FORCE.
