Trivia

A trailer for the film was released in March of 2015 and featured the song "Afraid of Nothing" by Sharon Van Etten. The filmmakers used the song without acquiring the rights to it. When Van Etten was notified by a fan on Twitter, the filmmakers were forced to pay her for illegally using her music. See more »

Goofs

(at around 29 mins) When Quinn knocks on her wall and supposedly Hector returns the knock, Quinn texts him asking if she woke him up. He replies with "I'm not home...". This implies that he already knows that she had knocked on the wall, but Quinn gave no indication that she had done that. His reply should have simply been "no", but of course that would break the story line. See more »

Quotes

Elise Rainier: Who is it?

Acceptable prequel about paranormal phenomena at an old house haunted by strange spirits
26 February 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

¨Insidious 3¨,by Leigh Whannell himself , both , actor and filmmaker , making for a choice that many genre fans should love with actors as Dermot Mulroney , Lin Shaye starring in . This is a creepy , rare , bizarre , terrifying movie in which keeps it horror with yet another haunted house film . Supernatural horror plenty of weird phenomenon , frights , creepy beings , shocks , and eerie events .A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead and to resolve a ghastly mystery in order to help an adolescent girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity. After investigating the house and encountering paranormal phenomena , then appearing the usual ghost hunters Specs (Leigh Whannell , also screenwriter, and filmmaker) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) . They seek to uncover the mysterious secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world . Little do they know that the house is haunted . The family looks to prevent evil spirits from a realm called The Further .This is how you die .The darkest chapter goes back to the beginning.

Insidious: Chapter 3 results to be an adequate and passable prequel , but inferior than former chapters , being filled ,with scary deeds , thrills , chills and lots of scares . This is a haunted movie that contains restless horror as when the invisible and threatening beings attack . Tension , creepy atmosphere , genuine chills , suspense is continued and appear lurking and menacing into dining room , hallway , and rooms . Great loads of screams , shocks , exploitation and terror abound with the usual poltergeists phenomenon caused by the weird entities . It's recreated with magnificent make-up and high grade plethora special effects which are frightening and horrifying the spectator . Writer Leigh Whannell stated at the Toronto Film Festival that when he wrote the film he had a list of horror movie clichés posted above him, so he could avoid using them ; he said the first one was to make sure the family moved into a new house once the haunting started . Eerie musical score by Joseph Bishara creating a spooky atmosphere. Dark as well atmospheric cinematography by Brian Pearson ; a majority of the film was shot in South Broadway, Downtown,Whitley Ave Los Angeles, (Street scenes) California, USA (The Building, main location) anmd Ave 53, Los Angeles, California, USA Los Angeles, California (Elise Rainier's House) ,

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions, which produced both Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2 finance this installment along with Oren Peli and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones , Charles Layton , John R. Leonetti , Peter Schlessel, Lia Buman and Entertainment One's Xavier Marchand are exec producing . The film was well directed by Leigh Whannell . Being Leigh Whannell's directorial debut and he even has an important role as ghost specialist . Leigh Whannell teamed up with James Wan and he told him that if they wanted to get a film made, they would have to pay for it themselves. Saw (2004) was born. After nine months of writing, Leigh had written the screenplay for what he thought would be a self-financed, "Blair Witch"-style feature, with him starring and James directing. The script gained so much attention that soon enough, they were shopping it around Hollywood . Subsequently , they wrote and directed the ¨Insidious ¨saga . This Insidious 3 takes place in 2007. Insidious (2010) and Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) take place in 2010. Leigh is an expert writer , actor and filmmaker on terror genre as he has demonstrated in ¨Saw¨ saga , and the Sci-Fi ¨Upgrade¨, among others . And of course , his biggest success ¨Insidious¨ (2010) with Patrick Wilson , Rose Byrne , Ty Simpkins , Lin Shaye , Barbara Hershey . It was followed by ¨Insidious Chapter 2¨ (2013) with Patrick Wilson ,Rose Byrne , Lin Shaye a Elise Rainier , Barbara Hershey as Lorraine Lambert and Steve Coulter . Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson were the only actors to appear in all three "Insidious" films. rating . 5.5/10 . Acceptable and passable .
