Goofs

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 »

An effective prequel to the daunting Insidious movie series
5 June 2015 | by kuronoxSee all my reviews

Fans of the original Insidious (especially fans of Lin Shaye's character, Elise) should find this movie very enjoyable to watch. If you're new to the series, then it's a strong movie on its own right. I loved the first two movies and given that this is the third installment following two very strong films - I feel like they were successful with the storytelling. I was expecting this movie to have nothing to do with the first and second movie, but I really appreciated that they tied in plot lines from the previous movies.

I have to say that I love Lin Shaye's character - I fell in love with her in the first Insidious and it was really great to see her kick some demon ass. I could probably watch Elise exorcise demons forever.

Was it scary? Yeah, I'm gonna have to say that it was because I actually jumped a few times and I rarely jump during horror movies anymore. The jump scares were clever, but it isn't ONLY jump scares. The atmosphere is still very "Insidious" - eerie and fun. However, the demon in this movie leaves a lot of questions unanswered. It actually looks like it could have a story connected to the family, but they never really explain the demon (perhaps there is nothing to explain and I'm just reading into it too much). At some points in the movie, I could see classic Japanese horror elements and it works great here.

After James Wan left the director position I was skeptical how well Leigh Whannell would do. I have to say, congrats to Leigh Whannell for successfully continuing the Insidious franchise.

Will there be an Insidious 4?
