These New Insidious: The Last Key Images Will Haunt Your Dreams


Insidious: The Last Key, the fourth instalment of Blumhouse’s lucrative and beloved horror series, has been a long time coming.

Not unlike Paramount’s canned Friday the 13th movie before it, The Last Key was originally scheduled to premiere this Halloween, before Blumhouse forfeited its window and left All Hallow’s Eve in the decaying hands of The Jigsaw Killer.

It’s since moved to January of 2018, and though the first month of any year is usually filled with unwanted sequels and would-be Hollywood flops, we’re starting to see more and more new releases buck tradition and hit it big at the box office. Here’s looking at you, Split.

And so, as The Last Key begins to cast a shadow over theaters, the studio has now released a ton of creepy new images which are sure to haunt your dreams. None of them are terribly revealing, but if nothing else, they promise that the film will be fluent in scares and unrelenting tension, as parapsychologist and all-around franchise lead Elise Rainier returns home to confront her innermost fears.

Starring a cast comprised of Josh Stewart, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Kirk Acevedo, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke and Caitlin Gerard, The Last Key flips expectations on their head by journeying into the home of Dr. Rainier, though we still expect a few ventures into the Further for good measure.

Here’s the official logline, courtesy of Lionsgate:

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.

Directing from a script penned by Leigh Whannell – a key architect of all things Insidious, alongside James Wan and Jason Blum – Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) will court viewers back into the Further once Insidious: The Last Key looms over theaters on January 5th, 2018 – or February 8th, if you happen to live in the UK.
