That scene where he's rowing with his wife is hilarious (intentionally, i might add for anyone who's not seen it yet).

Wife: "SO YOU'RE TELLING ME THAT WE'VE MOVED INTO A HOUSE WHERE PEOPLE WERE MURDERED?!?"

Ethan Hawke: "Nooooooo....it wasn't in the house.......it....was the back yard..."

i like the scene earlier where she asks him "please don't tell me we moved in down the road from a crime scene" and he's like "no we didn't move in down the road from a crime scene"

I agree with the view Ethan Hawke was good in this, best performance in years from him, albeit you sense he was channeling Nicholson in the The Shining a wee bit.

Both films had great potential and for the most part fulfilled it but they did both let themselves down with the endings.

I am really looking forward to Insidious 2 this year.

Agreed, The endings seems to be a common problem with horror movies like the two mentioned these days. I can't think of any movie of this type that I was really satisfied with the ending of.
I have to watch Inland Empire & Lovely Molly yet but I'm not holding much hope for either.

Sinister has a brilliant last shot though,

Sinister is better throughout, but Insidious certainly starts off better, but unfortunately plummets into idiocy.

The performances are better in Sinister. Rose Byrne is a little whiny in Insidious and hams it up a bit.

Liked them both. Sinister was the better film but Insidious had the better cast.

I actually prefer Insidious. Probably because I saw that first and was the only person in the cinema when I did!

Thought there were more scary moments. Although Sinister was more creepy, but the ending was predictable.

Insidious 7/10
Sinister 6/10
