Insidious: Chapter 3 trailer introduces the series origin story: watch now

A new trailer has appeared online for Insidious: Chapter 3, in which teenager Stefanie Scott is terrorised by a malignant entity making its presence felt from beyond the grave.

The new film is a prequel to the rest of the Insidious franchise, with Lin Shaye’s gifted psychic attempting to help the young girl by communing with the dead. Safe to say it’s a plan that has a few ups and downs.

The new trailer is packed full of jump scares, so turn the lights down, crank the volume up and see how still you can manage to sit…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

The moral of the story here is never grieve for anyone, because even thinking about the dead can apparently cause all hell to break loose! Scary stuff…

Directed by Leigh Whannell and co-starring Dermot Mulroney, Angus Sampson and Whannell himself, Insidious: Chapter 3 will open in the UK and US on 5 June 2015.
