Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


It’s the first entry in a wildly popular horror franchise with a new sequel on the way, but is “Insidious” a door worth walking through?

With the recent release of the trailer for the highly anticipated Insidious: The Red Door, which heralds the return of the horror franchise’s original cast for the final chapter of the Lambert family’s terrifying saga, we decided to go back to where it all began, 2010’s Insidious.

Directed by James Wan, written by Leigh Whannell, and starring Patrick WilsonRose Byrne, and Barbara Hershey, Insidious is the first installment in the Insidious franchise, and the third in terms of the series’ in-story chronology. The story centers on a married couple whose boy inexplicably enters a comatose state and becomes a vessel for a variety of demonic entities in an astral plane.

The film came as a result of the success of Wan’s Saw series. Acknowledging the fact Saw‘s violence and gore put some people off and made them hesitant to work with him, he set out to make Insidious in part to prove he could make a frightening, high-quality horror film without the use of excessive violence.

It’s not a well-fleshed-out story, and it’s super weird in places, but we go through all the messy details for your listening pleasure.

Tune in to hear your hosts talk about coma kids, pandering, Patrick Wilson grudges, mom blaming, baffling plot points, and much more.


Hosts Chaos and Carnage are two best friends who love to talk about horror movies. They take turns picking a movie each week to terrorize their cohost with. And once the mics are on, the bickering and bantering begin. Best friends for 20 years, their bickering is aged like a fine wine. Or cheese. New episodes drop every Monday.

Spoilers and expletives abound.
