After a decade of gore-fests like the Saw series, Hostel, or any of Rob Zombie’s movies, the new generation of mainstream horror continues to build. The success of relatively small-budgeted features has created an atmosphere of prequels and sequels-galore for series like Paranormal Activity and Insidious.

In this third-installment of Insidious, written by series co-creator Leigh Whannel, we’re taken back to the beginning, before the haunting of the Lambert family.

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.
