The parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier has nightmares with her childhood in New Mexico, where she lived with her brother Christian, her supportive mother Audrey and her father Gerald, who frequently beats her when she claims that she sees ghosts everywhere in the house. When the client Ted Garza calls Elise to ask for help since he is haunted since he moved to a house in New Mexico, Elise refuses the request since the address is the same house where she spent her childhood. However she changes her mind and accepts the job, and travels with her assistants Specs and Tucker to New Mexico where they will discover an evil entity in the house.

Not Terrible but not Terribly Good Either
23 October 2018 | by mochteamSee all my reviews

If you watch this on dvd or blueray you'll notice that there is a huge selection of scenes cut from the movie. After you watch the movie and then you watch the cut scenes it just makes you wonder why weren't these scenes put into the movie because they added more to the story.

After watching the movie and then seeing what they decided to cut from it makes scenes why parts of the movie plays out the way it does. If feels like when you watch this movie that it's missing certain pieces and that's because it is. Scenes that have a little bit more explanation got removed so the movie just flows at a faster pace.

This isn't exactly a good Insidious movie but it could of used a little bit more explanation on certain parts of the story than it gave. My biggest problem with the movie is that everything just falls right into place. They go to a restaurant and her brother she hasn't seen in 50 or 60 years just so happens to appear there. I mean the entire movie just runs on random coincidences like that.

The big scene of them going into the "Futher" like with every insidious movie leaves much to be desired. The first movie did it brilliantly but it seems like all the others just never quite made it seem as scary or interesting and of course they cut scenes of them in the further too but it's in the bonus footage.

Long story short this is a forgettable movie that could of been more memorable had they written a better story for the viewer to watch.
