In celebration of Halloween, Focus Features has released the first trailer for Insidious Chapter 3, which heads back into the further with new characters and some very familiar faces.

This latest chapter of Insidious franchise sets up the story of gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), giving us her backstory in this prequel which also features the return of Leigh Whannell as Specs. The actor, who co-created the franchise, also makes his directorial debut with the anticipated thriller.

This newest chapter in the terrifying saga takes place before the haunting of the Lambert family, and explains how Rainier became the ghost hunter we know today. She reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
