James Wan (writer/director on Saw) presents an old-fashioned haunted house story that almost works. An underdeveloped script and a deal-breaking subplot involving ghost-busters restrict the fear factor. A couple (Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne) moves into a spooky house. Weird voices, fast-moving shadows and ghost faces appear at increasing regularity. Insidious has a few good shockers, but it doesn’t sustain any terror after the credits roll.
