Movie Review – Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

Insidious: Chapter 3, 2015.

Directed by Leigh Whannell.

Starring Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson and Michael Reid MacKay.

A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
