The Official Teaser Trailer for 'Insidious Chapter 3' Revealed

Finally the new teaser trailer for forthcoming horror prequel 'Insidious Chapter 3' has been unleashed. It's a fairly contained, yet impressive, teaser focusing mostly on Stefanie Scott, who plays the daughter of Dermot Mulroney's ('August: Osage County') character, and a genuine brown trouser moment. Which soon moves on to plenty more creepy sequences with a covered version of Tiny Tim's Tiptoe Through the Tulips (which you will recall from the first 'Insidious' movie) thrown in for good measure. Mulroney and Scott star alongside the returning Angus Sampson, Lin Shaye and Leigh Whannell who himself is on board this time as director. Check out the new teaser below.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: WHEN DJINN'S GO BAD
 
  Posted: 22 October, 2014 at 12:39 PM GMT
Be Careful What You Wish For: When Djinn's Go Bad

Djinn are quite the formidable creatures. They truly are the one supernatural beings that can be depicted as good, bad or evil. Based on Islamic mythology Djinn, Jinn or Genies can just as easily give with one hand and take away with the other. So be careful what you wish for! Long gone are the days of Barbara Eden in classic fantasy sitcom 'I Dream of Jeannie' or the zany shenanigans of the famous blue genie, voiced by the late Robin Williams, that featured in Disney's 1992 'Aladdin'. Over the past 15 years the horror genre has been busy making sure audiences know of the more malevolent side of these spiritual creatures.
