Trivia

Leigh Whannell, who acts and directs this entrée into the "Insidious" franchise, had worked quite often in the horror genre. Amongst his works are Saw (2004), which in addition to writing, he also acted in as well. See more »

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 »

A pleasant surprise
5 June 2015 | by sea_angel-75127See all my reviews

I walked in with zero expectations and ended up being very pleasantly surprised. This movie was fun, well crafted and extremely entertaining. Being a big fan of the franchise (and of the genre)I was very happy with how this prequel explored the backstory of the psychic/medium and her future "helpers". The effects were great, the different ghosts/spirits/ entities were all different in their background and aspects. The plot was well developed and the jump-scares were well placed. There is no "repetition" from the previous two movies so this movie gained in originality.

You will not be disappointed.

Very fun ride!

NB: look for two thrilling cameos!!
