“Insidious 3 will give you enough goosebumps in spite of its generic story!”
The third installment in the horror series Insidious is no less than a yawn fest. With so many horror films surfacing up, each film needs to try something different to hook it's viewers. Similar concepts, ideas, plot twists and climax and the end put an end to the viewer's excitement.
20 minutes into Insidious 3 and you know what await you. To be blunt, a highly predictable horror. You got to try hard to feel the fear.
Quinn has lost her mother and is trying to make contact with her. In an attempt that looked successful, she begins thinking that her dead mother is trying to contact her, however, unable to decode the messages, Quinn goes to Elise, a renowned psychic who has stopped using her powers to contact the dead. Without much help, Quinn returns home prepping up for her theatre school audition whilst dealing with a bratty young brother and her widowed father. Not much later, Quinn who believes that she is being followed by a stranger meets with a terrifying accident.
Like Elise quotes, "Do not do this yourself. If you call out to one of the dead, all of them can hear you."
While it takes her dad, Sean Brenner some time to acknowledge the danger that is in store for his daughter, Quinn, Elise has had visions and eventually gives in to save this young teenager from the evil embodiments of the world of the dead.
There isn't much of a surprise factor, whatsoever. While the performances and treatments do complete justice, it is the writing and direction that stumble. What the film highly lacks is the fear factor that the series intends to bring forth. Not much of a novelty for horror fans!
The film does have it's rare moments all hail the cinematography and music; also, an intriguing start that it gets. Only to die sooner! Characters lack chemistry and encourage no emotionally involvement in the film. Now I'm not sure if there are moments enough to give you reasons to spend the bucks on tix and pop corn to watch this one! Wait for the TV premiere, may be?
'Cuz nothing's gonna change! Nor will there be any fear when you head to bed.
