"Insidious" is a movie from the creators of "Saw" and "Paranormal Activity" who team up to reinvent the haunted-house genre for a new generation, paying tribute to such horror classics as "The Exorcist," "Poltergeist" and "The Sixth Sense."

Renai (Rose Byrne) and her husband Josh (Patrick Wilson) are unpacking boxes in their family's new home when they first start to sense a sinister presence. Eerie events slowly escalate into supernatural attacks until one accident puts their son in a mysterious coma. When the family flees its ghost-ridden home and attempts to heal itself, Josh's mother (Barbara Hershey) brings in a team of paranormal investigators led by occult expert Elise Reiner (Lin Shaye). Josh and Renai are initially skeptical, but all doubts are swept away with one terrifying discovery: It's not the house that's haunted. It's their son.

The "Insidious" movie comes from the writer-director team of Leigh Whannell and James Wan ("Saw") and is produced by Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider ("Paranormal Activity"). The "Insidious" cast includes two-time Tony-nominee Patrick Wilson ("The Watchmen," "Little Children"), Emmy-nominee Rose Byrne ("28 Weeks Later," "Damages"), Golden Globe-winner Barbara Hershey ("Black Swan"), Lin Shaye and Ty Simpkins.
