I don't see how you found it to be so 'silly' because other well-respected horror films have these same ingredients. Insidious had some genuinely creepy moments and some scenes totally scared the shit out of me (the porch scene??!) I actually had trouble sleeping too after this one. I haven't had a film unsettle me like this since I was a kid. One of the best horror films to come out in recent years, definitely.

Also, anyone else think the score was fucking awesome? The strings really add a lot to the tone of the film.

Well put, I agree with all of this. The use of the strings was a big part of the consistently unnerving tone of the film.
I thought Insidious was great, I have watched it four times and it still stands up.
The theatrical experience for this one was best though.
