The Insidious franchise is continuing by going back in time.
As the first trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3 shows, writer/director Leigh Whannell is turning the spotlight from the Lambert family to a father and daughter played by Dermot Mulroney and Stefanie Scott. Like the Lamberts, these newcomers also reach out to paranormal investigator Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) and her team to find out what's haunting them.
The newest chapter in the terrifying horror series is written and directed by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. This chilling prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family, reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
Insidious: Chapter 3 marks the directorial debut for Whannell, who wrote the first three Saw movies as well as the previous installments of Insidious. He also appears on screen as his recurring character Specs.
The film opens on May 29, 2015.
