|Directed by:||Leigh Whannell|
Insidious: Chapter 3 was a surprisingly decent addition to the franchise, even though it didn't really expand upon the formula and stayed in a comfortable spot. But as a result the filmmakers played on the series original strengths and delivered the effective jolts we want and expect.
The performances were decent but not as solid as the original cast family but still very decent for a third outing. Actress Lin Shaye is the heart and soul of this film and delivers yet another solid performance as psychic Elise Rainier.
Overall Insidious: Chapter 3 will please fans of the series but won't win any new ones, because even though it's a prequel it still has the same vibe and scare tactics as the first two. No surprises here but still a very creepy and fun third outing. If they make a fourth one, which I hope they do, they need to throw something refreshing and even more terrifying into the mix to reignite the series instead of staying in a comfortable spot.
