Horror Scenes That I Love: The Clock Ghosts From Insidious

After all of the sequels and the rip-offs, it’s easy to forget just how scary Insidious was when it was first released, way back in 2011.

Believe it or not, it’s still pretty scary.  Take the scene below, for instance.  I screamed the first time I saw it and then I screamed again rewatching it on YouTube.

The reason this scenes works is because, from the start, you know that those two ghosts are going to show up.  You just don’t know when.  With each click, you know you’re getting closer and closer to something bad appearing in that hallway.  And then when they do finally show up and the movie’s soundtrack goes “BOOOOM!” and then you see the smiles on their face — AGCK!  Seriously, this is one of the best jump scares of the past decade.

  1. The first ‘Insidious was scary as all get out, but once you know what’s happening, the sequels, and some were well made, are no longer scary. Suspenseful perhaps, but not scary. It is the unknown which frightens me in a movie. Once I know it is a monster, alien, human – it no longer scares.
