Prepare to be terrified once again as the Lambert family delves back into the depths of The Further in the highly anticipated Insidious: The Red Door, slated for release in 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about the fifth installment in the Insidious franchise.
Insidious burst onto the scene in 2010, captivating audiences with its modern take on supernatural horror. The low-budget production became a box office hit and spawned a successful sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2, in 2013. Since then, the franchise has continued to expand with prequels and additional installments, igniting a fervor among horror fans that shows no signs of waning.
In Insidious 5, titled Insidious: The Red Door, the Lambert family once again finds themselves targeted by the terrifying Red-Faced Demon in a final chapter that promises to tie up loose ends from the first film. The trailer for Insidious: The Red Door has already hinted at the dire consequences of Dalton Lambert’s haunting childhood, which he and his family must confront a decade later.
While jump scares in MRI scanners may be a staple of the Insidious franchise, it’s the intricate plot and rich lore that have truly captivated audiences. The Red Door promises to deliver more than just fleeting thrills, delving deeper into the supernatural world that lurks beyond.
In recent updates, the MPAA rating for Insidious: The Red Door has been revealed as PG-13, raising concerns among some horror movie aficionados. However, it’s important to note that even the original Insidious film, widely regarded as one of the scariest movies of the 2010s, held a PG-13 rating. Rest assured, Insidious: The Red Door will not shy away from delivering spine-chilling scares, despite its rating.
Exciting news has also emerged about a spin-off movie titled Thread: An Insidious Tale, which boasts an impressive cast including Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani. This directorial debut by Jeremy Slater, known for his work on Moon Knight, promises a time-travel twist reminiscent of the original Insidious film. With Nanjiani at the helm, this spin-off has the potential to breathe new life into the franchise.
Mark your calendars, because Insidious: The Red Door is set to hit theaters on July 7th, 2023. As for streaming availability, it remains unknown when and where the film will be released online. Currently, the first two Insidious movies can be streamed on HBO Max, while the others are available for rental on platforms such as YouTube and Apple TV. It’s likely that Insidious 5 will follow a similar distribution pattern, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Production on Insidious: The Red Door began in the spring of 2022 after a significant period of development, with filming wrapping up in August 2022. The movie, directed by Patrick Wilson in his directorial debut, was conceived by Leigh Whannell, the original creator of the Insidious Universe. The screenplay was penned by Scott Teems, known for his work on Halloween Kills. With a dedicated cast and crew, including producers Jason Blum, James Wan, Oren Peli, and Leigh Whannell, it’s clear that Insidious intends to bid farewell with a bang.
Get ready for the return of terror as Patrick Wilson reprises his role as Josh Lambert, alongside Ty Simpkins as Dalton Lambert and Rose Byrne as Renai Lambert. Brace yourselves, because Insidious: The Red Door promises to be a chilling conclusion to a beloved horror franchise.
