IAR SET VISIT: 'Insidious: Chapter 3'

Opening in theaters on June 5th is Insidious: Chapter 3, which is the third installment of the popular horror franchise produced by Jason Blum (The Lazarus Effect).

Insidious: Chapter 3 is directed by screenwriter/actor Leigh Whannell (Insidious: Chapter 2, Saw), who takes over directing duties from former director and now producer James Wan (Insidious: Chapter 2, Saw). The movie stars new cast members Dermot Mulroney (The Grey), and Stefanie Scott (Jem and the Holograms), while Whannell, Angus Sampson (The Mule), and Lin Shaye (The Signal) reprise their roles from the previous films as Specs, Tucker, and Elise Rainier, respectively.

The new movie is actually a prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family in the first two films. Insidious: Chapter 3 reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Shaye) reluctantly agreed to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.

Last fall, I had the pleasure of visiting the Los Angeles set of Insidious: Chapter 3, along with a few other members of the press. We had a chance to speak with producer Jason Blum, director/screenwriter/actor Leigh Whannell, and actors Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Angus Sampson, and Lin Shaye about their work on the upcoming film.
