Coming to theatres this Friday to shock and awe from writer/director Leigh Whannell and Focus Features comes the next installment going back to “Insidious: Chapter 3.”
The film tells the story of Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott), a young woman who goes to psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) to contact her mother who died. Rainier tells Quinn if she goes under that she could bring others back with her besides her mother.
Rainier also knows Quinn has tried to contact her mother before and warns her to stop. As weird things begin to happen and during an audition an accident happens sending her to the “dark place”. Quinn thinks her mother is trying to reach her but it becomes clear that it is not her mother – but something more sinister.
Dad Sean (Dermot Mulroney) is struggling to raise his children; father and daughter have a very strained relationship. In fact, Sean is the first to hear the strange sounds and footprints happening in their home.
Sometimes a girl just needs her mother!
Scott as Quinn is a young girl taking on a big role. Not that this is a bad thing at all, this is a scary film and she literally got beat up so she definitely gets points for that.
Mulroney as Sean did a really good job with the role he was given. He is such a versatile actor and we have seen him in so many films so it’s hardly shocking that he jumps into this role and gets to be weirded out by footprints!
The winner here is Shaye as Rainier. Having been in all three films she has really embraced this role and we love her for it. When she is in the “dark place” it was sweet and sad at the same time, until she snaps out of it and takes matters into her own hands. Well played Shaye!!
Other cast include: Angus Sampson as Tucker, Leigh Whannell as Specs, Steve Coulter as Carl, Hayley Kiyoko as Maggie, Corbett Tuck as Danielle, Tom Gallop as Dr. Henderson, Jeris Poindexter as Harry, Ele Keats as Lillith Brenner and Michael Reid MacKay The Man Who Can’t Breathe.
TUBS OF POPCORN: We give Insidious 3 three tubs of popcorn out of five. We give it this score because its fun and a scary movie that rattles you a little. Fans of the genre and the Insidious franchise won’t be disappointed and that’s what matters.
You might want to hit up seeing Insidious and Insidious 2 to understand a few of the storylines and we don’t intend to tell you what parts. Definitely want viewers to experience everything for themselves.
There is a lot more interaction between the scary stuff in the film and the people who are being haunted. At the same time there are a lot of questions left unanswered so we are going to assume there will be an Insidious 4. The special effects and makeup are very well done.
In the end — the darkest chapter goes back to the beginning!
