The Insidious franchise has been an interesting one for me, I really enjoyed the first film, didn't really like the second, and thought that the third was a pretty solid entry. I'm hopeful that the franchise can continue in restoring itself to former glory. Of course, one of my favorite characters in the films is Dr. Elise Rainier, played by Lin Shaye, so it's nice to see that she'll have an even bigger role in this new entry.
This new trailer doesn't really show off anything new, other than a look into Dr. Rainier's past, it's still worth a watch if you're a fan of the franchise and are looking forward to this fourth film.
Insidious: The Last Key [Chapter 4] is scheduled to release into theaters on January 5th from Universal Pictures.
"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."
