Lin Shaye reprises her role as Elise Reiner in the third chapter of the Insidious series of films.
Set before the haunting of the Lambert family (Chapter One) this film sees Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her spiritual powers to help Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) contact her mother Lillith who has recently died,
Quinn has already tried to contact her mother but soon it becomes clear that it wasn’t her mother that she made contact with and something sinister is trying to possesses her.
Out of desperation to rid Quinn of the demon that is possessing her Quinn’s father calls in Specs (Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) after reading their internet blog. Soon it becomes clear the blog was made up and this is the first time that Specs and Tucker have encounter a real ghost.
Elise is reluctant to get involved but eventually she is drawn in realising the danger that Quinn in facing.
Elise combines forces with Specs and Tucker and they successfully drive the demon away leaving Quinn to lead a normal life.
REVIEW : This is another great horror film in Insidious franchise. It may be a bit slow to start, perhaps there was a little too much focus introducing Quinn to the the audience but once the film gets going its one scare after another.
As always Lin Shaye is excellent as Elsie and Specs and Tucker lighten the mood of the film with their attempts to use technology against supernatural entities with hilarious results.
This film is a must see for anyone who likes horror, but in places it’s very scary indeed.
