Fear the Dark updates title and opens The Red Door
The upcoming fifth part in Leigh Wannell And James Wan‘S insidious Franchise will be given a minor facelift ahead of its July 7 release. Originally en route to theaters under the full title of Insidious: Fear the Darknessthe film will now be based on one of the most iconic images in the series and bear the new title Insidious: The Red Door.
The update is ominous and fitting given the red doors’ role throughout insidious movies. They serve as gateways to the lairs of the big villains of the first two films, and as pathways to Next itself. It’s partly because of the red door that the Lambert family has been so viciously haunted over the years. In the 2018 prequel Insidious: The Last Keythe paranormal investigator and linchpin of the franchise Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) accidentally opens a door leading to the Lambert house, leaving it open as she makes her way back to the real world after defeating Key Face. Her actions inadvertently condemn the family to repeated hauntings and multiple trips far away to find peace.
Apparently, the red door hasn’t been closed for good on the Lambert family Insidious: The Red Door takes place ten years after the events of the second film. Plot details are mostly under wraps, but the new film will be starring Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) Drop Dalton (Ty Simpsons) at the idyllic college of his dreams in the East. However, when the demons of his childhood creep back into her life, she beckons onward to finally close the door on this horrific chapter of her life.
Talking to Collider about the new movie, Series Star Rose Byrn revealed that the idea for The Lamberts’ new nightmare came from Wilson, who will make his directorial debut on the project while Whannell writes. After taking a break from the Lamberts to focus on Elise, it felt only natural to check in with the family years later to see how she’s progressing and moving on from her traumatic experiences. If it turns out to be another hit for Blumhouse, Byrne hasn’t closed the door on another sequel either, although Wilson, Simpkins and Whannell would all have to stay on board to work.

In addition to the recurring cast of Byrne, Wilson and Simpkins, the new installment will also star Peter Dager, Sinclair DanielAnd Hiam Abbass. It will be the first time the franchise has made it to the big screen in five years, however insidious is a far cry from the cult franchise it used to be and is fast becoming a mainstay of the Blumhouse brand.
