THIS JUST IN: Insidious: Chapter 4 Is On Its Way


By Jonathan Patrick Hughes

In 2010, writer Leigh Whannell and Director James Wan made an independent film entitled, Insidious which, to me, felt more like a modern day Poltergeist with pulse-pounding moments and a clever way to take a audience on a trip into the further. Since then, the franchise has exploded giving the audience a true scarathon. James Wan directed the first two films as well as The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 and left the writer, Leigh Whannell in charge of directing the 3rd film in the franchise.

With 2017 just around the corner, a new chapter is gonna take us even further into the further. Once again, Leigh Whannell wrote the screenplay and the director of The Taking of Deborah Logan, Adam Robitel is sitting in the director's chair ready to give us a continuation that is going to take on levels that we have yet to experience.

“It takes place right after the end of Insidious: Chapter 3, when she walks off with Specs and Tucker and they’re starting their company, Spectral Sightings, and they are now living at her home. They’re like her two sons, her two bad sons.
“So it starts out in a very jovial, happy place and then goes downhill from there,” she adds. “And downhill meaning uphill, though. It’s a fantastic story and it took me back into what made Elise who she is. You meet my family, my mother, my father—we go back to my hometown, which is in New Mexico. And so that’s where this takes place and her quest to find the bad guy that’s been haunting her. It’s a really wonderful story. I think the fans will really, really enjoy it. And it’s scary on levels they’re not going to expect.”

As a fan of the franchise, I, for one, am excited to see where this will take us. I have yet to be disappointed with any of the films and I welcome a fourth chapter of Insidious. 2017 is shaping up to be a solid year for horror films.
