Insidious isn't your typical haunted house or possession tale. The stories under this franchise all connect under the concept of a dark spiritual realm known as "The Further." Spirits from The Further don't haunt places, they haunt people, and they do it to the death. This sinister story, spooking viewers through the screen since 2010, has stayed relevant through the years and kept fans loyal through the telling of each chapter. It inspired the use of "Upside Down" worlds within our own, influenced the notion of cursed families throughout the genre, and made a name in horror for all those involved in the original film. With four films underway and fans left divided on the reception of the most recent installments, it's finally come time for a new chapter in the Insidious story.
The Insidious movies have non-stop terrifying action, and they make no room for slow, anticipatory fear, and instead utilize the jump-scare around every corner. The spirits and demons in these films don't just haunt, they attack, taking corporeal form more often than not. Sometimes whether they're physical or not is an ambiguous line unclear to viewers when crossed. Each chapter sticks to a standard formula created by the story: an entity takes someone's astral body to the further, and Elise, played by Lin Shaye, must bring them back. Elise is the most pivotal character, even in her death, as shown in Insidious: Chapter 2.

It's been five years since the last installment of Insidious, and this summer, the franchise will be back for more with Insidious: The Red Door. With actor Patrick Wilson making his directorial debut, and an all-too-familiar cast, the film is making a comeback much anticipated by fans. Here's everything we know so far about Insidious: The Red Door.
