After having their story wrapped up in last year’s Insidious: Chapter 2, the Lamberts paved the way for other families to get haunted in the franchise, and that’s precisely what’s going down in the upcoming third installment.
Well, actually, this particular haunting takes place before the Lamberts experienced their paranormal activity, but you get what I’m trying to say.
Set for release on May 29th of next year, Insidious Chapter 3 looks to center mostly on the ghost-hunting characters of Specs, Tucker and Elise Rainier, with the prequel revealing how gifted psychic Rainier reluctantly agreed to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
The prequel marks the directorial debut of its writer, Leigh Whannell, who also wrote the first two films and played the character Specs. The cast includes the returning Angus Sampson, Whannell and Lin Shaye, as well as franchise newcomers Dermot Mulroney and Stefanie Scott.
Check out the just released teaser trailer below, which is largely comprised of one select scare scene. Turn off the lights, turn up the volume and enjoy!
