  • Insidious: Chapter 3 is simply not scary. Not a bit, not a whit. Except that the audience will be terrified of the next stabbing of their eardrums, at generally predictable intervals. show more

  • You jump out of your skin the first few times the skeleton pops out at you. By the end of the ride, you’ve gotten a good look and it’s not so much scary as hokey. show more

  • Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell’s economical script vividly reimagines Elise’s motivations for using her “gift” to aid the demon-afflicted while providing a clearer plotline that avoids many of the convoluted indulgences of the first and second episodes. show more

    I can't remember the last time I walked out on a movie, but I did tonight. My grandsons could have written a better story. The movie relied on the shock factor of the evil entity "suddenly" appearing on the screen to be scarey. And when they called in the Spirit Spectators (cheesy ghost hunters from a website) I couldn't take any more.
