MOVIE REVIEW - Insidious 3

Written by

Here comes another installment of the Insidious series, this would be number 3.  A prequel.


As if having two of these wasn't enough, we have to go back to the well yet again to see what is happening still in "then further."  Just like the first two.  The funny thing about these movies is that they aren't bad movies.  But they aren't great either.  But they do suffer from being forgettable.

And that's understandable. Being fair, I see all of these movies, and other ones that resemble each other in one way shape or form.  And it is hard to keep all these franchises straight.  They all kind of look the same, and are the same. 

In this version, it takes place before the other two and we learn a bit more about our principle characters and why they are the way they are.  Now, not being cruel, I'm not so sure anyone really cares why Elise is the way she is, and how she handles being a medium between the living and the dead.  But we learn it anyway.

 
The downfall though of this is this franchise has simply run it's course.  This is not scary, or original and it's just more of the same.  In fact, it is exactly the same as the others.  But to it's credit, it's short and tidy and does keep itself moving along. Too bad it's not an original path we are going down.

Insidious 3.  For those following the series closely, a hit.
