Insidious writer Leigh Whannell is currently directing the third chapter in the horror series and the Insidious Facebook Page has revealed the first look at the film as well as some new plot information.
Although Chapter 2 left us with a cliffhanger ending, Insidious Chapter 3 will be a prequel story to the first film and will bring back Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, and Whannell’s characters to dissect the mysteries of The Further. The new tale will follow a teenage girl and her family whose terrors predate the Lamber family’s.
