Insidious Chapter 3 Review
This latest installment of the Insidious franchise attempts to be the darkest wherein audience gets emotionally and mentally drawn to the story that deals with the other world otherwise dubbed as The Further by the creators of this movie.
Set years way back prior to the haunting of Lambert family, Insidious Chapter 3 highlights the paranormal and psychic powers of Elise (Lin Shaye). One day a teenage girl Quinn Brenner comes knocking on Elise’s door seeking help in reaching out to her dead mom. At this point Elise is retiring from giving psychic readings and paranormal advice she decides to accommodate the young lady’s request. Sensing that Quinn is in imminent danger, Elise send her back home and ask her not to contact her dead mother ever again.
Quinn goes back home to her usual routine but a horrific accident leaves her to recover at home. Living in an old apartment building with her dad Sean and young brother Alex, Sean tries to keep things together as they deal with the evil entity that places his daughter Quinn in danger.
With supernatural occurrences going on at Brenner’s home Sean realizes that he is not capable of dealing with an unknown dark entity. He has no other choice but to contact Elise and seek help from so called paranormal experts.
Elise, the only clairvoyant that can genuinely deal with entities from The Further, find herself struggling to face off the darkest being- a demonic entity that has a big appetite for living human souls.
Production wise the movie deals with the strange reality that our world co-exist with another strange world inhabited by entities and spirits. The dark entities are finding a way to return or crossover from one world to another that will involve taking a human soul. This new Insidious chapter will take viewers deeper into the unknown world creating an impact to the ordinary world we all live in.
