Movie recommendation: "Insidious"

For all of you horror fans out there, I watched the movie, "Insidious" last night.  Very, very creepy.

Think: "Orphan" meets "Case 39" meets "Paranormal Activity" meets "Drag Me To Hell."

I watch a lot of horror movies, and sadly I'm perpetually disappointed by predictable tropes and an over-reliance on blood-and-guts and quick scares to make up for lack of plot.  When I come across something that is a fresh idea or puts a new spin on classic horror, it makes me pay attention.

I won't pass along any spoilers, but I will say that "Insidious" scared me--and that doesn't happen very often.  I'd characterize it is a good not great horror flick--but one that is well worth watching!
