Lyn Shaye is back as Dr. Elise Rainier in this new chapter, which finds the parapsychologist in for a hell of a time when a malevolent haunting hits her family home.
The new marketing video below shows off some pretty freaky snippets, suggesting we could be in for one unsettling time at the movies. It’s a feat for a franchise to hit four films, although it’s not often that you can say the films are great this far in. Hopefully this chapter marks an exception.
The film is directed by Adam Robitel, who delivered a solid found footage horror pic with TheTaking of Deborah Logan. Insidious writer Leigh Whannell, who plays Specs in the franchise and directed Insidious: Chapter 3, continues on writing duties.
Insidious: The Last Key hits US cinemas on January 5 and arrives in Australia on February 8.
The creative minds behind the hit Insidious trilogy return for Insidious: The Last Key. In the supernatural thriller, which welcomes back franchise standout Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.
The film is written by co-creator Leigh Whannell (Saw), who wrote the trilogy and directed Chapter 3; produced by Insidious regulars Jason Blum (The Purge series, Get Out), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and co-creator James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7); and directed by series newcomer Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan). Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Charles Layton, Bailey Conway Anglewicz, Couper Samuelson and Whannell serve as executive producers.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is financing Insidious: Chapter 4, and domestic distribution will be handled by Universal Pictures. Sony will handle international distribution.
