Insidious: Lite Edition
Verified purchase
Not the best, but not the worst in the series - that honor goes to “The Last Key.” I like the universe this series has created simply because it’s different than the majority of horror movies. This shares a lot in common with the first few films, but just not as compelling. You’re not wasting your time with this one, but you also aren’t creating any lasting memories.

Insidious had become routine by Chapter 3
Verified purchase
Surprise surprise there was an Insidious 3. James Wan was no longer the director although he still helped write the movie. Having finished with the Lambert family in the first two movies this one dealt with a teenage girl played by Stefanie Scott and the psychic played by Lin Shaye. Like Insidious 2 the movie uses gotcha moments for scares instead of setting up a mood. That means while it has its moments it still wasn’t as good as the first movie in the franchise and was a pretty routine horror story.

This movie is about a teenage girl who tries to communicate with her mother who had recently passed and she finds that she had not actually been talking with her mother but instead been talking to something much worse and very dangerous.this is a really entertaining movie I really enjoyed watching this movie.

Won't Play
Verified purchase
I have now tried two brand new Blu Ray discs, purchased from amazon, in a total of 3 machines (Samsung, Panasonic and LG) and none of them will play the discs. It sits at the lantern image for several minutes before it finally hits the ADs/Previews. Whether you skip the previews (there are 6 or 7 so expect at least 20 minutes of crap to get through) you might eventually arrive at the actual play menu but don't expect the movie to actually play. It just sits there with a black screen and the counter on the BD player reading 0:00:00. I was able to play Chp. 1 -2 & 4 without issue. The worst Blu Ray disc I have encountered in a really long time.

I love the Insidious franchise so I was biased twords this ...
Verified purchase
Spoiler only at the end: I love the Insidious franchise so I was biased twords this movie to start. I wanted to love it, but along side of the others it lacks something. We went through the house at Halloween Horror Nights 25 before seeing this and the house made me think the movie was going to be scarier than it was. I guess I set myself up for failure. James Wan is a master at setting up a psychological scare. The moments of quiet where you don't realize you have stopped breathing and that the hairs are standing up on the back of your neck. Leigh Wannell has been hit or miss at this in the past, and this is no exception. If James Wan would come back to this series, it would be a dream come true.

I wish they had given at least a clue to what Elise saw at the end of 2. I know this is a prequel but when you wait that long in between movies, you wish to be thrown a proverbial bone. Spoiler: The addition of redface at the end was laughable and it felt like the director was forced to put that in by someone thinking we couldnt go a whole movie without seeing him. At least it gave me a laugh for the night.

Highs and lows
Verified purchase
Insidious started off so well. The first 2 movies were great. This movie is just so cliche and cheesy at times and the acting is so cringy at times and I couldn't take a lot of the scenes seriously. There are some good scares, but this movie is just another example of the plaque of modern horror. The fourth movie after this is just as bad. Hollywood needs to let this franchise down gently

Insidious 3 is a great addition to the Insidious series
Verified purchase
Insidious 3 is a great addition to the Insidious series. Although not as amazing as Insidious 1 I felt it took a great turn with a prequel no less. The Insidious series is more about the scary phantoms in The Further rather then the humans being attacked and while it does have returning characters it focuses more on the ghost and the victim more like Insidious 1. A big plus too 3 is it made Insidious 2 more enjoyable for me by filling in the little pieces lost between characters in the first 2 movies. If you have watched and enjoyed 1 and 2 the third chapter will be just as enjoyable and a nice string to tie the movies together. If you have not watched the series at all and wish to test the waters on this horror franchise i recommend watching this movie first as it is the first in the timeline and retains the quality throughout. In short, I love this series and for a horror movie to have 3 good movies is a rarity nowadays but well worth the watching time.

The sequel it the prequal of the series. Elise's story
Verified purchase
This sequel is really a prequel to the first movie. It explains how Elise met Specs and Tucker. Elise's problem with the lady in black and you see the red face demon. Although you never find out where he comes from. The story centers around a girl who lost her mother and the desire to talk to her once more. But like others who mess with ouija boards the outcome isn't good. She seeks Elise's help, she's reluctant at first them agrees to help. Entertaining horror movie, it's better than the second movie in the series. The movie could be called Elise's story it explain what happen to her husband as well as previous encounter with the women in black. May answer come questions you had concerning the first two or at least the original.
