Nothing more than a trip through a disappointing haunted house at a local carnival.

Manages to deliver a decent film with some strong scares, yet certain moments will feel like a haunted trip you've already taken one too many times before.

Chapter 3 is still mostly too enamored by the lousy lore it stubbornly latches on, making it a less effective scarer than it imagines itself to be.

Save for a few "boo" moments, it is hardly unnerving. I yawned midway through the film. For a horror flick, that's not a good thing at all.

A big ol' sack of dull.

Insidious: Chapter 3 may be a slight improvement over the previous sequel, but with its continued over-reliance on jump scares and a basic, repetitive plot, it merely becomes another chapter that will leave horror fans unsatisfied.

It never really adds up to much in the end, leaving this chapter of the ghost-loving series with and a mediocre conclusion.

This movie is unnecessarily sadistic. ... The story would have been just as effective without [some of its] scenes of violence, which verge on exploitation.

As middling, somewhat serviceable horror fare, it delivers its own share of jump scares, but whatever visceral effect it might have had wears off the instant the credits begin to roll.

Elise is the chance for these movies to be different, to change up conventions or refresh the franchise. Instead, she's dropped into the same old business.

It doesn't help that the acting and writing is often clunky, making it that much harder to suspend disbelief in a genre that insists on doing just that.

This is fairly generic, predictable stuff.

The characters are sometimes too fearless and too stoic, so the movie feels boring and slow. [full review in Spanish]

There aren't any new ideas or much of anything this sequel brings to the franchise. [full review in Spanish]

It doesn't really offer anything new. [full review in Spanish]

A good sequel for fans of the saga, but it may not be enough for new viewers or more demanding audiences. [full review in Spanish]

Get some fresh ideas or let this series die.

Those images lack emotional impact when they're used to deck out a plot of dinner-theater flimsiness.

The terror that will truly stick with me is Dermot Mulroney's "How-did-I-get-here?" performance as the girl's father.
