Focus Features has released the first Insidious 3 image, which reveals that the horror pic is actually a prequel to the low-budget franchise. Insidious and Insidious Chapter 2 screenwriter Leigh Whannell takes over directing duties this time around from James Wan, as the story revolves around a teenage girl and her family, revealing more mysteries of the otherworldly realm of The Further. The cast is led by Dermot Mulroney and Stefanie Scott, with Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, and Whannell himself reprising their roles from the previous two movies. Additionally, Focus is launching a sweepstakes for fans to win a visit to the set, which you can enter by visiting the official Facebook or Twitter pages.
I have yet to see a single Insidious movie so I don’t have much of a reaction to this image or prequel news, but what say you Insidious fans? Are you pleased by this development? Check out the first Insidious 3 image after the jump and sound off in the comments. Insidious: Chapter 3 opens in theaters on May 29, 2015.
