Insidious: Chapter 3 Review
Director: Leigh Whannell
Summary: Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) has just lost her mother and wants nothing more than to make contact with her. However, by reaching out, she has invited into her life a malevolent entity that wants nothing more than to draw Quinn into the darkness by using her grief in hopes of taking her soul. Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) is a gifted psychic Quinn has sought out for help, but due to Elise’s past, she refuses to use her abilities, until Quinn’s father (Dermot Mulroney) begs her to rid their lives of this sinister being.
If you are looking for a movie with lots of suspense and a thrill to draw out the fear in you, this is not a movie for you. Insidious: Chapter 3 is a movie for beginners looking to start in on horror films. Insidious: Chapter 1 contained scenes that down right made you jump and cover your eyes with its creepiness, however Insidious: Chapter 3 followed the typical movie squeal trend: to not be as good as the first. Although, I must say, Insidious: Chapter 3 was not that bad of a movie. Yes, it was not overly scary, but it did have its moments of suspense and had moments of hilarity. Spoiler Alert: I love when old ladies fight. My favorite quote: “Come on Bitch.”
Insidious: Chapter 3 was less of a scary movie and more of a movie about loss. Its perspective of tragedy and how depression can overtake the lives of those who have experienced a loss was very well constructed throughout the theme of the movie. It goes to show, do not let the past pull you down from a future you are destined for; for life is as short as you let it be.
Leigh Whannell directed this movie at a length of an hour and a half and kept a plot that held the viewers for the most part until near the end where the story is drawn out. This left me slightly bored, but Leigh Whannell was good to bring back the pace of the movie. In the end, I would rate the movie at a 3.5 and good for families to watch in case their children get scared easily or for those looking to relieve themselves of boredom.
