Quinn starts noticing paranormal events happen in her house. After a vicious attack from a demon her father goes back and begs Elise Rainier to use her abilities to contact the other side in hope to stop these attacks by this furious demon content for a body.Written by
(at around 29 mins) When Quinn knocks on her wall and supposedly Hector returns the knock, Quinn texts him asking if she woke him up. He replies with "I'm not home...". This implies that he already knows that she had knocked on the wall, but Quinn gave no indication that she had done that. His reply should have simply been "no", but of course that would break the story line. See more »
Best horror/supernatural franchise ever is Insidious, it seems though that I am one of the few who puts Insidious 3 in 3rd place behind Insidious 2 (1st place) and Insidious (2nd place) - Whilst Insidious 3 isn't bad, you can tell that James Wan did not direct it, the film for me had a different feeling to it altogether even though 6 of the characters are recurring (Black bride / Lipstick Demon / Specs / Tucker / Karl / Elise), it is almost de-realised, looks familiar but doesn't feel it.
I felt too that Leigh Wannell as the writer/directer left it too long to get Specs and Tucker involved, whilst Lin Shea is a gem of the franchise, Specs and Tucker cleverly provide an almost comedic aspect without it being cheesy, to make the storyline more interesting they needed to be in as much as 20 mins earlier.
Definitely worth watching if you are a fan, certainly darker than the other two as people have said but I won't be rushing to buy this on DVD when it comes out as I did for the first two installments
