Insidious: Chapter 3 and We Are Still Here movie(s) review: gray horror

by MaryAnn Johanson

Insidious Chapter 3 and We Are Still Here yellow light

An unlikely duo of films in which folks way beyond their teens fight hauntings injects a bit of the unexpected into a genre now tediously predictable.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)


See also my #WhereAreTheWomen rating of Insidious: Chapter 3 for its representation of girls and women.
