“Insidious: Chapter 3” is shockingly good — especially for the third movie in a horror franchise. Rather than repeating himself, writer, co-star and first-time director Leigh Whannell sets this one up as a prequel, and puts the exceedingly bad-ass Lin Shaye front and center. It’s got several serious jumps but also a significant emotional undercurrent. […]
I must admit I missed this sequel because it screened the same night we went to see the Pixies at the El Rey (which would you rather do?). But I liked the first film, and Alonso and Ben’s review of part two makes it sound worthwhile.
