“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” shines light on 'Godmother of Horror'


“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” SHINES A LIGHT ON `GODMOTHER OF HORROR'

While dialing up the chills, Columbia Pictures' new horror thriller “Insidious: Chapter 3” turns back the clock as it takes place years before the first two chapters which detailed the escalating haunting of the Lambert family. With the family’s fate resolved in “Insidious: Chapter 2,” director and screenwriter Leigh Whannell was keen to shine the spotlight on a constant in the tales: indomitable psychic Elise Rainier, portrayed by Lin Shaye.

The legendary actress was recently honored for her contributions in the horror genre by being named the “Godmother of Horror” at last month's Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia. Besides reprising her role as gifted psychic Elise Rainier in “Insidious: Chapter 3,” Shaye also starred in more than 20 other horror films, including “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Snakes on a Plane” and “Ouija.”

Elise had been killed off as part of the struggle to save the Lamberts, but “I love the character and I wondered how I could bring her back,” says Whannell. “Dealing with ‘ghost Elise’ wasn’t the idea; I wanted her alive! People enjoyed the time-spanning storytelling that we advanced in the second movie, and I felt that would help me find a story that gives deeper meaning to Elise’s journey.

“I started to devise an origin story, a prequel set a few years before the first movie wherein concepts central to Insidious take shape, and where we could explore Elise’s background. Once I started writing this, I fell in love with the piece.”

Shaye was impressed at how Whannell’s script “gives you more details about the characters; in “Insidious: Chapter 3,” we learn more about Elise’s personal life. These ideas were exciting, because character and story are what matter to me.”

Producer Jason Blum enthuses that “when you see Lin playing Elise on-screen, you believe that she’s able to communicate with demons and ghosts. In most movies about the paranormal, it’s hard to make the character of the expert feel credible, but Lin is terrific at doing just that.”

Whannell says, “Lin is an actor whom you love having on the set, because she’s 100% committed at all times. When you’re a writer, it’s encouraging having an actor talk over your script so much with you.

“I had a lot of discussions with Lin while I was writing `Insidious: Chapter 3,' and I feel we’ve made her character even stronger than in the first two films – with a real range of emotions that she can express so well.”

Producer James Wan affirms, “Lin Shaye is the beating heart of these movies, and now the new movie is able to continue and expand upon the series’ legacy.”

“It’s a great new story that transpires in the same universe,” elaborates producer Oren Peli. “Leigh introduces a new family – and revisits some favorite characters from the previous chapters, like Elise. We get to see how she evolved to be the Elise audiences got to know and love in the first two Insidious chapters – the woman who is selflessly willing to sacrifice herself to fight demonic forces for a family’s sake.”

Shaye concludes, “I hear all the time from people who love these movies, so I was aware of the expectations. The challenge was to not repeat ourselves; Elise has different dilemmas in `Insidious: Chapter 3,' and Leigh gave me a lot to work with and to play. Elements of this new story, what this family faces down and what Elise does, will touch people in a very human way.”



“Insidious: Chapter 3” has been given a Parental Guidance (PG) rating by the MTRCB. This movie contains scenes with several scary and horrifying images, blasting sounds, and themes (a child communicating with the dead, dealing with the supernatural, etc.) that may be disturbing for very young viewers. Parental guidance and discretion is strictly advised.


Opening across the Philippines on Friday, June 05, “Insidious: Chapter 3” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” keeps horror tradition alive


“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” KEEPS HORROR TRADITION ALIVE

The description “very dark and weird” has been part and parcel of the enduring shivery appeal of the Insidious movies, evoking dread and terror – sometimes explainable for the characters, sometimes not. This could not have been truer in the new sequel, “Insidious: Chapter 3” from Columbia Pictures.

Teen cast member Stefanie Scott remarks, “It’s the fear of the unknown that works on you – like when you hear a noise and think, ‘Huh, that’s nothing.’ But in these movies, it is...something.”

Director and screenwriter Leigh Whannell adds, “It’s your own imagination that can start freaking you out right away; a floorboard creaking can set you off. In the Insidious movies, we build on that and tease the audience a little.

“Then we go for the unexpected scares, maybe seen out of the corner of your eye. Like in the first two movies, there will be moments in `Insidious: Chapter 3' where half the theatre is whispering because they saw something – but the other half didn’t catch it. An Insidious movie has this creepy atmosphere where you never know what to expect, and up come some images that stick in your mind.”

“The Insidious movies are atmosphere-centric,” agrees producer and franchise creator James Wan. “For the filmmaking team, it’s all about creating the right tone, the right creepiness. The world of The Further looms over our real world and is like a nightmare, except you’re not asleep when you experience these demonic entities encroaching on your world or these ghostly spirits haunting you.”

Producer Oren Peli comments, “I think that fans value the Insidious movies because these are not typical horror movies that rely on gore; the scares are methodical and effective.

“I myself am drawn to the core concept of something lurking in your own normal home, something that you can’t reason with and don’t know how to fight against – but you must, for your family’s sake.”

Producer Jason Blum confesses, “What scares me is being home alone at night and hearing weird things. I think the reason that so many horror movies take place in your own house is because that’s where you feel safest. So when you’re threatened in that environment, it’s truly scary. That’s a big part of the Insidious movies, as The Further bleeds into people’s homes and the paranormal feels real.

“For me, the scariest thing about the Insidious world is definitely the demons. But I’m very proud at how these movies define what scares you most as what you can imagine, not necessarily what’s on the screen.”

Actor Dermot Mulroney adds, “The Insidious movies are about the anticipation of fear, and they use old-school methods to achieve what other movies fail at using modern technology.”

Having confronted all manner of demons in her characterization of the brave Elise, actress Lin Shaye reflects, “I loved – or, hated – the demons in the first and second movies, but there’s something about the one in `Insidious: Chapter 3' that chills me; there is a familiarity to it that is different – and scarier – than what we’ve seen before.”

Wan says, “This new chapter is a good entry point for people who have never seen an Insidious movie to come in and enjoy a scary ride.”



“Insidious: Chapter 3” is the new movie in the terrifying horror series, written and directed by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. The film is set years before the haunting of the Lambert family, and the psychic Elise’s battles with spirits from The Further, in “Insidious” and “Insidious: Chapter 2.”

In “Chapter 3,” an ordinary family comes under siege: 17-year-old aspiring actress Quinn (Stefanie Scott), 9-year-old tech-geek Alex (Tate Berney), and their widowed father Sean (Dermot Mulroney). Wife and mother Lily’s passing has hurt each member of the Brenner family, but Quinn is particularly sensitive at a vulnerable age and makes the fateful decision to contact clairvoyant Elise in hopes of communicating with Lily.

“Insidious: Chapter 3” has been given a Parental Guidance (PG) rating by the MTRCB. This movie contains scenes with several scary and horrifying images, blasting sounds, and themes (a child communicating with the dead, dealing with the supernatural, etc.) that may be disturbing for very young viewers. Parental guidance and discretion is strictly advised.

“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” takes a darker turn into 'The Further'


“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” TAKES A DARKER TURN INTO `THE FURTHER'

Imagine a world that lives alongside the everyday; more frightening than your nightmares, it seeps through your dreams into your waking life. This world is inhabited by the dead and the never-alive, and is in conflict with the world of the living. Its demon denizens want to return from one world to the other. Some ghosts hope to make sense of their deaths; some spirits yearn to reconnect with their loved ones. But many burn to exorcise their anger, to indulge their jealousy, to wield their hatred and resentment, to exact revenge at any cost...

This netherworld is The Further, created by Leigh Whannell and James Wan in the hit movies “Insidious” and “Insidious: Chapter 2.” With “Insidious: Chapter 3,” the terrifying horror series takes a darker-than-ever turn into The Further.

Producer Jason Blum, whose company Blumhouse has also produced the “Sinister,” “The Purge,” “Ouija,” and “Paranormal Activity” franchises, says, “James and Leigh have created their own unique, terrifying world with `Insidious,' and this chapter takes us deeper and deeper into The Further.”
Whannell, writer and director on the new movie, opines that “people who love a good scare dig the `Insidious' films. We want audiences to be absolutely terrified.”

While dialing up the chills, “Insidious: Chapter 3” turns back the clock; it takes place years before the first two chapters which detailed the escalating haunting of the Lambert family. With the family’s fate resolved in “Insidious: Chapter 2,” Whannell was keen to shine the spotlight on a constant in the tales: indomitable psychic Elise Rainier, portrayed by Lin Shaye.

Elise had been killed off as part of the struggle to save the Lamberts, but “I love the character and I wondered how I could bring her back,” says Whannell. “Dealing with ‘ghost Elise’ wasn’t the idea; I wanted her alive! People enjoyed the time-spanning storytelling that we advanced in the second movie, and I felt that would help me find a story that gives deeper meaning to Elise’s journey.

“I started to devise an origin story, a prequel set a few years before the first movie wherein concepts central to Insidious take shape, and where we could explore Elise’s background. Once I started writing this, I fell in love with the piece.”

Shaye was impressed at how Whannell’s script “gives you more details about the characters; in “Insidious: Chapter 3,” we learn more about Elise’s personal life. These ideas were exciting, because character and story are what matter to me.”

Wan affirms, “Lin Shaye is the beating heart of these movies, and now the new movie is able to continue and expand upon the series’ legacy.”

Whannell offers, “I started to see Elise’s arc in `Insidious: Chapter 3' as reframing the classic Western story of the gunslinger who comes out of retirement. Or, these days, it’s an assassin who does so. But how often do we get to see it with an older woman?”

While the new storyline has much to offer faithful viewers of the movies, it is also inviting in an audience that can come to the saga fresh. Whannell reminds, “Everyone has fears, no matter what their culture or country. At its core, every ghost story is about death and loss. That is why they are relatable. `Insidious: Chapter 3' is no exception; people can see this movie having seen neither of the previous chapters and they will understand what the characters here go through.




Opening across the Philippines on June 05, 2015, “Insidious: Chapter 3” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

The darkest “INSIDIOUS” chapter goes back to the beginning


THE DARKEST “INSIDIOUS” CHAPTER GOES BACK TO THE BEGINNING

The darkest “Insidious” chapter plunges audiences back into the otherworldly realm The Further, revealing how Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) first braved it in her fight to save a young woman from demonic possession.

Columbia Pictures' “Insidious: Chapter 3,” the new movie in the terrifying horror series, is written and directed by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. The film is set years before the haunting of the Lambert family, and Elise’s battles with spirits from The Further, in “Insidious” and “Insidious: Chapter 2.”

In the prequel, teenaged aspiring actress Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) senses that her late mother is trying to contact her, and seeks out a gifted psychic – Elise.

Elise feels protective of sensitive Quinn, but tragedy in Elise’s past has left her reluctant to use her abilities. Soon a shocking accident leaves Quinn recuperating at home, as her widowed father Sean (Dermot Mulroney) struggles to hold his family together. Then Quinn is attacked in her bedroom by a malevolent supernatural entity, and Sean pleads with Elise to help. Wrestling with her faith and sense of purpose, Elise summons her powers to contact the dead – with support from two new acquaintances, unlicensed parapsychologists Tucker (Angus Sampson) and Specs (Leigh Whannell).

Forced to venture deep into The Further to protect Quinn, Elise soon finds herself facing off against the most ruthless enemy she has ever encountered: a demon with an insatiable craving for human souls.

The adjectives “dark and weird” has been part and parcel of the enduring shivery appeal of the “Insidious” movies, evoking dread and terror – sometimes explainable for the characters, sometimes not. Stefanie Scott remarks, “It’s the fear of the unknown that works on you – like when you hear a noise and think, ‘Huh, that’s nothing.’ But in these movies, it is...something.”

Leigh Whannell adds, “It’s your own imagination that can start freaking you out right away; a floorboard creaking can set you off. In the `Insidious' movies, we build on that and tease the audience a little.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
