A Masterpiece!


I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.

A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.

Kien Navarro

Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.


Watching this alone in a basement on a 70" 4K TV with Dolby Atmos surround sound definitely made this movie better. I certainly jumped a good amount of times, as you are accustomed to in the Insidious movies. And I was frightened especially when the main actress had been knocked onto the floor, and that demon was walking around on the floor. Very gripping to say the least.


The main problem that lies in this film is the simple fact that it is a prequel that focuses on a character that was already killed off in the first film. The movie isn't poorly done necessarily, but I just can't feel any tension when I know nothing bad can happen to the main character. However, if i'm going to review this movie on it's own I must say that some of the ideas and themes explored are pretty good and show great potential , and some of the scares and creature designs are quite inventive. If your invested in this series I suggest you watch it and, you might get something out of it, after all, as horror sequels go this one isn't the worst,but lets face it, that really isn't saying much.


Chapter 3 takes us back before the first two installments of the Insidious Franchise. This movie is a truly chilling horror movie, going more for the hair-raising creepiness of demons caught between the living and the after life rather than relying on cheap startling pops to make it scary. Stefanie Scott succeeds in gaining the audience's sympathy as her character, Quinn Brenner, a teenage girl who recently lost her mother, suffers a debilitating accident, and has to battle with the paranormal realm. Lin Shaye reprises her role as the medium Elise Reiner. We see Elise's life before the Lambert family hauntings, and we even get to see how Elise meets Specs and Tucker (Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson) Quinn lives with her father Sean Brenner (Dermot Mulroney) and younger brother Alex (Tate Berrey). Quinn begins to witness strange happenings in her room at night, and she seeks out the help of Elise. Quinn tells Elise that she believe her mother is trying to communicate with her, and therefore she has tried to contact her mother. Elise explains that when trying to contact an individual, all can hear; and that Quinn has opened the gates to some not-so-friendly, or shall I say insidious, demons. Reluctant at first, Elise agrees to help Quinn, but not before the Brenners seek the help of paranormal bloggers Specs and Tucker. The film is suspenseful throughout. The movie ends with a teaser for a fourth chapter. As long as they keep them as good as the first three, I look forward to seeing more.


Writer/Director/actor Leigh Whannell creates a surprisingly good horror movie with "Insidious: Chapter 3." Most horror series, once they are up to part 3, the truly horrifying thing about them is how badly they are made and how much they suck. Not so with this third round of the "Insidious" movies, which makes it more of an abnormality…in a good way.Stefanie Scott plays a teen who recently lost her mom to cancer, and now she is hearing things and believe it's her mom trying to contact her. But instead of letting the dead be dead, Scott tries to communicate with the entity she thinks is her mom — but it's not her mom. A terrible accident has Scott die for a few seconds, and when she comes to life, she will find that she has brought something very evil into her life…a spirit that she nor her family can fight off by themselves.Coming to their rescue — maybe — is an elderly medium we have seen from the first two "Insidious" movies, played by Lin Shaye. Although Shaye had many encounters with dark spirits in the past, giving her an insight and wisdom on what to do, Shaye is spiritually weakened by a personal tragedy and a direct threat to her life from The Bride In Black spirit. To be successful in helping Scott and keeping herself alive, Shaye must deal with her fears, or else two good souls will be lost forever.My most memorable, movie moment of "Insidious: Chapter 2" is the scene when Scott, possessed by a demon, breaks off her cast on both legs and starts walking. As Scott walks, the bones in her legs can be heard breaking again! This poor girl…even if she frees herself from the demon, she's going to have one hell of a recovery period from those broken bones!Fans of "Insidious" will be very satisfied with this third chapter — it's almost as good as the first, and better than the second. It has a few cheap scares, but most of the scares are set up well and play up to your fears of things that lurk in the shadows.Mannysmemorablemoviemoments
