‘Insidious 3’ Trailer: This Is How You Die
Insidious director James Wan has moved on to the Fast and Furious franchise, but that doesn't mean the Insidious films are dead. Instead, Wan's creative partner and Saw co-creator Leigh Whannell has stepped up to continue the series with Insidious Chapter 3, which serves as a prequel to the original two films. But is it still scary?
Both Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson have also moved on from the series and this new film instead follows Lin Shaye, the only returning cast member from the original films. If you had told us a few years ago that there would be a popular horror movie series centered around Lin Shaye, we would've thought you were crazy.
While the director and most of the cast is gone, this definitely feels like an Insidious movie. Lots of old ghosts, seances, possessions, jump scares...the whole deal. It doesn't feel like anything new, really, but if you liked the other two films, you'll probably enjoy this one too.
In addition to Lin Shaye, Insidious 3 stars Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Angus Sampson and Whannell himself.
This chilling prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family, reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
Insidious Chapter 3 opens in theaters on June 5.
