From the makers of Paranormal Activity and writer/director Leigh Whannell and producer James Wan comes the newest and scariest chapter of the Insidious franchise. The prequel INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 debuts on Digital HD Sept. 22 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD Oct. 6 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Leigh Whannell takes the director’s chair for the third installment, which transports viewers back to the beginning for this prequel. Franchise regulars Lin Shaye (Ouija) as Elise, Angus Sampson (TV’s “Fargo”) as Tucker and Leigh Whannell (Saw) as Specs are joined by Dermot Mulroney (Jobs, The Grey), Stefanie Scott (upcoming: Jem and the Holograms) and Hayley Kiyoko (upcoming: Jem and the Holograms) when Elise, Tucker and Specs team up to help a young teen who inadvertently unleashes something evil.
Bonus materials on the prequel Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Extras* include the featurette “Origin Story: Making Chapter 3,” where fans go onto the set to meet the cast and crew, and explore everything from Leigh Whannell’s decision to write and direct the third installment, to adding a new family to the mix, and to the decision to take us to the moment of Elise’s return to her work. Deleted Scenes and four more featurettes are exclusively available on the INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 Blu-ray and Digital Extras*, including “Being Haunted: A Psychic Medium Speaks” which shows Leigh Whannell’s inspiration for the hauntings and a tour of a haunted location with Psychic Medium Michael J. Kouri; “Macabre Creations,” follows the makeup process via time-lapse photography for the ghosts and specters and discusses the process of creating the things that go bump in the night; Stefanie Scott interviews the band Cherry Glazerr in the featurette “Cherry Glazerr: Tiptoe Through the Tulips;” and “Stunts: The Car Crash,” which explores the creation of the car crash scene from the stunts on set through the special and visual effects processes.
Go back to the beginning… if you dare… in this chilling prequel that takes place before the unforgettable haunting of the Lambert family. Paranormal investigators Tucker and Specs team up with the psychic Elise to help Quinn, a teenage girl who believes that her late mother is trying to make contact. At first, Elise’s horrific past makes her reluctant to use her ability, but when Quinn’s desperate father begs for assistance, she agrees to venture into The Further. There, she finds a ruthless supernatural entity with a voracious craving for the souls of the living. It’s the darkest chapter yet in this spine-tingling portrayal of evil unleashed.
