Insidious (adjective): spreading or acting inconspicuously but
with harmful effect.
Meh. A modern take on Poltergeist which follows the same
formula pretty much and borrows plot and imagery from other, better horror movies. The performances are generally okay but it's all about as scary as a Punch & Judy puppet show. Also, the
title is a misnomer. Inshitious would have been more apt. Still, it was successful enough for a sequel or two to materialise.
