The second film, not such hate. I liked INSIDIOUS 2, the story was good, the demons were creepy and we didn't have Darth Maul popping up. was this a good film though? or is it the fact that I was already waiting for a shit film to come out of the first film that anything at this stage would be good?
I was never a fan of the whole The Further part of the first film, but the dimension didn't seem so bad in INSIDIOUS 2 . So basically everything feel on how good INSIDIOUS 3 was for me.
INSIDIOUS 3 is the prequel to the first film, focusing on Elise and how she got back into the world of Psychic mediumship after the death of her husband. Elise is visited by a young teenager Quinn, looking to contact her mother who had passed a year previous. Breaking her rule of never doing a reading again Elise agrees to contact Quinns mother only to come face to face with a stalking figure hidding the The Further to kill Elise.
Quinn heads home, he heart broken that she couldn't contact her mother. What Quinn doesn't realize is the in the shadows a demon is stalking her. A twisted man wearing a breathing mask who wants to take Quinn's soul for his own. After a car accident leaves her bed ridden Quinn has nowhere to run from this evil and it comes down to Elise and a duo of ghost hunters to take on the demon in The Further.
There is nothing special about this film, there is nothing really any different from anything else out there in the horror genre, however this doesn't mean it is a bad movie. The prequel concept works in this case, more than it did on films like PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 and it is good to see Elise take the film in here stride. The acting here was passable, something you expect from the style of film but overall nothing made me jump out of my seat or creep me out. As a whole it was a very mediocre horror film, well shot but lacking the umph. Worth a watch though.
