A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
At first I'm scared watching it all alone just the like the previous films I watched it solo haha
afterwards I'm more of surprised really this prequel is not as good as the other ones but it's a nice thing to get to know how all the crew got together. I like how spooked I was with the classic BOOM! in your face scare tactic haha! I screamed by the window scene and at the very end that was fun ;))
The dad was trying to get it together but he seems so messed up the kids well will always be kids. The youngest is almost always acting up drutted kid but he somewhat redeemed himself telling his dad how to solve the problem,acting all brave and all near the end although he's not always present in the movie. The girl's a typical teenager she needs some guidance and decided to contact her dead mother like why? seriously why? like why not just pray? ugh or like think of her being in a better place stay strong and act like what oldest sister do oh girl you're in so much trouble! I think the lack of her dad's presence in her life affects her so much #teenageproblems then again just like J.K Rowling once said there's an expiration date in blaming your parents moving on ( I know it's just a film haha!) I always thought it's bad to break the circle like when you hold hands and stuff for contact or whatever but this film proved me wrong (or is it? especially in real life) OMG!
Some of things that's good to be reminded of:
Never contact anything from the other side- once you made that connection something almost always comes along with it that's not really what you're expecting (mostly bad stuff)
The further is a scary place good thing there's a lamp in there and not a candle OMG imagine that!
Ghost business is nothing like show business it's hella scary most of the time
Face your fears!
Don't talk to strangers!
Make sure you almost always have somebody with you especially when sick.
Make sure your neighbor crush is home before you start knocking at their wall haha!
When alone and someone attack you grab anything hit them with all you got! self defense 101 kick their ass!
and so much more! etc.
Overall this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars it's alright so-so if you wanna instantaneously spook yourself go ahead! I like this series and I think this is also Leigh Whannell directorial debut Congrats!
