It’s hard to believe it’s been almost ten years since we first watched the Lambert family journey into the Further in James Wan‘s Insidious. Now, four films later, we’ve left the Lamberts behind and travelled back into the past of everyone’s favorite genial ghost-hunter, Elise Rainer (Lin Shaye). Want to catch up on every trip to the Further, but don’t have the time to ado a full rewatch of every film? We’ve got you covered with a new franchise recap that brings you up to speed in just under five minutes.
We’re debuting the clip ahead of the home video release for Insidious: The Last Key. The latest entry in the franchise sees The Taking of Deborah Logan director Adam Robitel take the helm of a script by franchise mainstay Leigh Whannell for a prequel that journeys into Elise’s childhood, where we discover the most personal demons the powerful medium ever faced.
The film also stars Whannell, Angus Sampson, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker, and Marcus Henderson. The Last Key is available now on digital, and arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on April 3. Get ready with our exclusive peak at the franchise recap below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Insidious: The Last Key:
“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).”
