‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Trailer: Elise Wrestles Her Demons in the Latest Terror From Blumhouse

Don't look behind you. The fourth installment of the "Insidious" franchise comes out on January 5.

Insidious: The Last Key horror


The best horror writers know that the scariest terrors come from within ourselves. At least, that seems to be the motto behind “Insidious: The Last Key,” the fourth chapter in Blumhouse’s chilling “Insidious” franchise. While the first movie sent Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne to grapple with terrors from their past, the fourth will do the same for parapsychologist Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), if this chilling new trailer is any indication.

“The Last Key” returns Elise to the home of her youth yet again, with demonologists Specs (Leigh Whannell, who wrote the script) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) to help her tame the terrors lurking. This time, a young girl is living in the house, which IMDB suggests is a teenage Elise (Hana Hayes). Down in a dark basement, a set of prison-like doors open slowly to reveal an army of decaying spirits freed from their shackles right in front of our eyes. Ever fearless, Elise remains calm and collected as her outstretched hand caresses a pretty ghost’s face.

“Insidious: The Last Key” is directed by Adam Robitel, written by Whannell, and produced by James Wan and Jason Blum. The powerhouse horror studio just keeps churning out the hits, adding to its impressive roster that includes franchises like “Paranormal Activity” and “The Purge,” as well as the game-changing “Get Out.”
