Insidious: The Red Door
Production by Blumhouse/Atomic Punk/Sony Pictures
Produced by James Wan, Jason Blum, Leigh Whannell & Oren Peli
Insidious, a franchise unlike typical haunted house or possession tales, revolves around a dark spiritual realm called "The Further" where spirits haunt people, not places. Since its debut in 2010, the sinister story has remained relevant, inspiring "Upside Down" worlds, cursed families in the horror genre, and solidifying its place in horror history. However, the franchise's recent installments have left fans divided. The films are known for their non-stop terrifying action, frequent jump-scares, and ambiguous line between physical and non-physical entities. Each chapter follows a formula where Elise, played by Lin Shaye, retrieves someone's astral body from The Further. Despite a five-year gap since the last installment, Insidious: The Red Door is set to be released this summer, marking Patrick Wilson's directorial debut and featuring a familiar cast, generating anticipation from fans.
