INSIDIOUS 3 (English) - An emotional horror film that though isn't a classic but does deliver the scares after a long time. [TTP (To The Point) Review By Bobby Sing]

19 Jul, 2015 | Movie Reviews / 2015 Releases

The very first question one wishes to ask about a new horror release is that does it have some really scary scenes or is it spooky enough to be tried sparing the valuable time?
The answer is yes, the third part of series does have some frightening sequences to offer with emotions playing a major role, but at the same time it isn’t a classic or masterpiece if you compare it with its original part one to be precise. Written and directed by (a different director) Leigh Whannel, this chapter 3 of Insidious is actually not a sequel but a prequel taking you few years back before those horrifying events happening with the Lambert family (in its first two parts). Moreover it also reveals how Elise formed an association with the two TV show ghost busters looking for the spirits with their strange technical devices in all haunted houses.
The film begins at a slow note introducing a young girl Quinn and her haunting experiences with some unexplained paranormal activities, partially reminding of her dead mother. The girl meets a severe accident due to the same and it all begins when she is advised to simply rest on bed in her cluttered room, unable to move freely with her both legs covered in plaster. From here on, the sudden appearances of strange black foot marks, cracking ceilings and the oxygen masked man does provide many thrilling shocks as expected from a horror film. However, the treatment tries to present it all in an emotionally different way progressing at a relaxed pace with some fine performances, a noteworthy cinematography and effective background score.
Stefanie playing the role of young Quinn looks beautiful expressing the emotions brilliantly and Lin Shaye as Elise impresses a lot helping the young girl, whereas Dermont Mulroney as Quinn’s father is just okay. In short as a prequel to the famous horror series, it serves the purpose well and doesn’t disappoint, but since the expectations levels are so high keeping in mind the other two parts, one does feel like served less in the end quite honestly.
Rating : 3 / 5
