A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
After trying to connect with her dead mother, teenager Quinn Brenner, asks psychic Elise Rainier to help her, she refuses due to negotiate events in her childhood. Quinn starts noticing paranormal events happen in her house. After a vicious attack from a demon her father goes back and begs Elise Rainier to use her abilities to contact the other side in hope to stop these attacks by this furious demon content for a body.Written by
(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 »

The Same Formula Rekindled
The teenager Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) visits the medium Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) expecting to contact her mother Lillith (Ele Keats). Quinn explains that she tried to contact her mother alone, but Elise refuses to help her. Soon Quinn is haunted by the fiend of The Man Who Can't Breathe (Michael Reid MacKay) in her room but her skeptical father Sean Brenner (Dermot Mulroney) does not believe in her words. However, when Quinn is violently attacked by the evil spirit, Sean asks Elise to help his daughter. Elise tries, but she is attacked by the Bride In Black (Tom Fitzpatrick) that wants to kill her and she refuses to continue. The desperate Sean is convinced by his son Alex (Tate Berney) to contacts the charlatans Tucker (Angus Sampson) and Specs (Leigh Whannell) that have a blog relating their supernatural experiences while Elise meets her friend Carl (Steve Coulter) that convinces her to help Quinn. Can the teenager be saved from the possession of the evil spirit?
"Insidious: Chapter 3" is a horror film and prequel of "Insidious" that uses the same successful formula rekindled. The performances are convincing and the storyline is well written. The astral projection of Elise is scary and the viewer will certainly startle many times. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Sobrenatural: A Origem" ("Supernatural: The Origin")
