A 2011 supernatural horror film was written by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan.

The Lambert family Josh (Patrick Wilson), Renai (Rose Byrne), their sons Dalton (Ty Simpkins) and Foster (Andrew Astor), and their baby girl Cali move into a new home.

But it houses a darkness. And after Dalton experiences strange things in the attic, he falls into a coma.

Unexplainable things happen. Voices. Foster says that Dalton, even though in a coma, sleepwalks. Figures appear then disappear. They even move, but can’t escape the paranormal activity.

Lorraine, Josh’s mother (Barbara Hershey), has a dream about the entity in the house, a darkness that wants Dalton. She calls in help.

Dalton isn’t in a coma, his spirit has left his body and has traveled to the astral plane. Now his body is vulnerable. Spirits/ demons want to enter it to live again.

Lorraine called the demonologists because she had worked with them before, something Josh has forgotten. He can travel to the astral plane. To save Dalton, Josh goes into The Further, where tortured dead souls wander, to find Dalton and bring him back before the little boy’s body is taken over.

But it doesn’t quite go as planned.

Spoilers!

A 2013 supernatural horror movie story by James Wan and Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan.

This picks up right after the first movie and dives deeper into Josh’s childhood and the old woman who lurked in so many photos of him, the ghost that connects them to the spiritual world.

So many secrets…so many…

Voices and figures that are there then gone, and Josh isn’t acting quite like himself.

What happened when he went into The Further to save Dalton? Who is the black bride that haunts him?

I’m not telling, but it’s seriously messed up.

Watch with me! Wednesday, October 12th, 9 EST.  Add your thoughts #Insidious2 #SocietyScreams.

 

Finally on Friday, October 14th, we’ll end the series with…

2015 supernatural horror movie written and directed by Leigh Whannell.

This one is my favorite! Back before the Lambert’s terrible fight, Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) was grieving and trying to distance herself from her gift of communicating with the dead. She’s scared, afraid because of a vision of what’s going to kill her.

Enter Quinn…

She is desperate to talk to her deceased mom and heard that Elise can help her.

Elise tries to help, but can’t face her fear, and warns the girl not to call out to the dead.

Hearing strange sounds, Quinn believes her mother’s spirit is trying to communicate and talks to her. When a car hits her, Quinn ends up stuck in bed with two broken legs. She’s stalked and attacked by something. Her dad Sean goes to Elise for help, but she refuses.

So Sean hires two paranormal investigators…

I might have squealed in joy when these two showed up…

Only the experiences in this house overwhelm the duo.

Elise, unable to forget Quinn, unable to sit by as people suffer, shows up just in time and takes over the case. Tucker and Specs step up to assist. (And the trio is formed!)

They have to fight whatever haunts Quinn before it takes possession of her soul. Elise has to face her fear.
