Insidious 1 and 2 (review)

Having seen Ash vs the Evil Dead trailer, if you haven’t seen it and you like Bruce Campbell or trashy horror movies then go watch it, recently I felt it was time to dip my toe once again into the horror genre. It’s an industry which understandably can get a lot of slack for being…
