Critic Reviews for Insidious: Chapter 3
As middling, somewhat serviceable horror fare, it delivers its own share of jump scares, but whatever visceral effect it might have had wears off the instant the credits begin to roll.
Whannell does a creditable job with the film. He's not as bold as Wan about mounting a sequence, but he's no slouch about the psychology of screen horror.
The quiet stretches actually serve their purpose here, creating a sense of intimacy with the characters as opposed to simply marking time between the shocks.
It's mostly a waiting game for the next inevitable spook to go bump in the night.
Tepid ghost story Insidious: Chapter 3 tries and fails to emphasize character-driven drama over cheap, jump-scare-intensive thrills.
Audience Reviews for Insidious: Chapter 3
Is Insidious the new Saw? This passable movie bears no connection with the end of the second installment and seems like it could have been the backdoor pilot of a TV series preceding the events of the first two films, and it isn't very original or scary at all.
Lacks the thrills the original gave. Leaving you disappointed rather than scared!
Is this the scariest movie of the year? Of course not! But the repetitive scares are more than enough to lean forward in your seat for and (as every critic has stated up to this point) for a "part 3", "Insidious: Chapter 3" works as throw away, yet effective entertainment.
