The Best Of Them All!

Worth going to see. I went to see it at the movies and I was very impressed. It was super scary and had lots of jump-scares. Definetly suggesting this movie to my friends. It's so much fun to watch it in theaters because it's louder and VERY scary. I don't suggest kids 10 & younger too see it. It's very creepy and has bad words. Includes blood, breaking of legs, cracking bones, loads of jump-scares, choking people, scary figures & more.

Can't Wait For More!

Insidious Chpt 3 explained to us everything we needed to know about the first and second feature. This film was absolutely amazing and definitely showed the scares it needed. The movie wasn't very violent, but the demon looked a bit repulsive. There was little sex except mild flirting. There were a few jump scares, but overall wasn't extremely scary. I would totally recommend this movie to fans of the franchise. I absolutely loved this movie and cannot wait until a new movie is made.

Surprisingly good horror prequel that ties well in series!

This film did not let me down! I loved how this film tells the story way before the first film! I loved the acting and the plot, and the film was pretty scary! The film does contain some brief language including a use of f**k and uses of s**t. In addition, the film contains plenty of horror violence. This involves possession, a car accident, brutal fights, and creepy imagery. This is a great horror prequel, but is best for teens 15 and up.

This movie is pretty scary but is appropriate. Not really any gory or bloody violence and just a few bad words and that’s it.
