    Oh god, I'd forgotten about this one! I wanted so badly to think this movie was stupid, but it was just too creepy. Damn you, Wes Craven! *shakes fists*

    Also in the same vein as the Alien prank clip that was posted earlier:

I had to stop watching this series. I don't think I went much past season 1.
    I think it only lasted 3 years or so, it never made it to 2000. But it was my favorite show on TV for awhile... X-Files intensified a few notches, and Lance Henriksen and Megan Gallagher were great in their roles. (Terry o' Quinn was in that too, although he finally got large-scale renown by playing Locke on "Lost" some years later.)

    But it was very dark. And the writing was inconsistent, so it just never quite made it.

    The rest of the movie freaked me out.... and the part with the dog made me cry.

    Ugh.
    Yes! The part when he goes hunting in Times Square is probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen in a movie theater.

    But it made me cry, at exactly the same place where you cried, Saturned. And I simply cannot forgive that movie for it. Very few movies make me cry, but when they do, I resent them and refuse to watch them ever again.

    That part made me angry -- because I saw it coming and I was angry at the emotional manipulation they were pulling...

    Anything where pets die make me angry >_<

    !!!

    And it's even worse that I didn't just cry -- I bawled. I sobbed in the theater. Not okay!!

    I avoid movies and books where there's animal violence, because of that -- though I get sad, instead of mad. I almost quit reading "Slaughter-House Five" in the middle, even though I freaking LOVED that book, just because there was a particularly horrible bit of animal violence (which was such an insignificant moment, plot-wise, that no one else I've talked to about it remembers it).

    No other movie scene has scared me as much as this one.

    I still only consider it a B-rate overall (ALTHOUGH the two parents actually seemed sensible and real, for once, in a movie like this!)...

    ... but that thing you're describing was as scary as hell, pretty much any time it showed up except for (ironically) in the Further or whatever the astral plane was called. Typically as long as we were only getting flashes of its appearance, it was darn freaky.

    Thus disproving the theory that an out-of-context Youtube video can't be creepy as hell.

    I saw this recently as well. I was pretty thoroughly whelmed by it especially given that the makers of Saw and Paranormal Activity were behind it. I thought it was actually kinda funny in certain places. Like

    Dangit I got Insidious to see tonight.

    Then again, Saw was vastly overrated.

    Lol. Okay, that scene ruined the tone of the movie for me, personally, but that is rather cute/funny.

    I didn't realize some Saw and Paranormal Activity folks were behind it.

    I actually liked PA 1, and I just watched the entire Saw series back to back in the last week. I actually really like it, because there's a difference between John Kramer and his 'understudies' -- an actual method to his madness, a purpose that drives him, rules that he imposes on himself, and his goal is to somehow "rehabilitate" rather than destroy. So moral questions are raised: Is it moral to put people in a situation where they lose some things dear to them in order to save their own souls?

    And of course the complexity not just of each trap, and each movie as it interlocks, but also of all the time-overlapping sequences and trying to get the chronology right in one's head of when events occur despite which movie they appear in, plus trying to figure out who is who... all that's pretty mentally stimulating.

    The gore quotient is pretty high though.

    Like I said, I think the cultural focus on it was stupid -- people seemed interested in the gore.

    I was more interested in the moral questions and trying to figure out the multiple puzzles of plot and time in my head.

    Enjoy Insidious. I recommend watching it alone, in a dark house, late at night, with the wind rattling your windows and creaking the floors.
