From the makers of Saw, Sinister and The Conjuring comes the third chapter of this terrifying series. Exploring the earlier experiences of psychic Elise (Lin Shaye), Insidious: Chapter 3 is a genuinely scary thrill-ride with a chilling atmosphere and jump-out-of-your-seat scares.
Dermot Mulroney(The Grey, Stoker, TV’s Shameless), Lin Shaye (Insidious, A Nightmare on Elm Street, There’s Something About Mary), Angus Sampson (Insidious, Mad Max: Fury Road, TV’s Fargo), Stefanie Scott (Wreck it Ralph, No Strings Attached) and written/directed by series writer Leigh Whannell (Writer of Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious, Cooties)
The terrifying prequel that takes Insidious back to the beginning…
When teenager Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) senses that her late mother is trying to contact her, she seeks help from gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). However, Elise’s tragic past makes her reluctant to use her abilities. After Quinn is attacked by a malevolent entity, her father (Dermot Mulroney) pleads with Elise for help. With support from two parapsychologists, Elise ventures deep into The Further — where she finds a powerful demon with an insatiable craving for human souls.
It’s rare for the third installment of any franchise to live up to the standards of its predecessors, but with its creepy atmosphere, big scares, and nightmarish demons, Insidious: Chapter 3 is a more than worthy addition to the successful franchise. It’s little wonder: Leigh Whannell is the creator of the hugely successful Saw and knows the genre’s terrifying ins and outs perfectly. He’s not only one of horror’s most creative minds but also a master of tension and timing. Leigh once again returns to the role of crackpot ghost hunter, Specs; starring alongside an excellent cast that includes genre veterans (Lin Shaye), current hot stars (Dermot Mulroney), and emerging talent (Stefanie Scott). This is one prequel horror fans won’t want to miss!
