movie facts

The film was only mildly well-received by critics upon release but has gone on to produce a successful film franchise, which has greatly expanded upon the story of this first film and evolved into its own fictional mythos. The other films' plots also intertwine with each other, with the first film not being the first in the series chronologically. Each film has been produced on relatively small budgets as well, and as such, each has seen enough financial success to warrant continuation of the franchise and central story arcs.


about the movie

Insidious is a 2010 horror film directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannell. The movie stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Barbara Hershey. The movie's production was handled by Blumhouse Productions, with Jason Blum heading up producing, and distribution was handled by FilmDistrict. The movie was made on a relatively modest budget of just $1.5 million and earned $97 million during its theatrical run. As a decent financial success for the studios involved, it was the beginning of a now long-running film franchise, with four movies released, and a fifth planned for the future.
