The latest entry to the Insidious franchise Insidious: The Red Door takes things back to the beginning and plays as a satisfying conclusion to the series.
The plot see us return to the Lambert years later after the events of the first two movies. Josh and Dalton are still dealing with their forgotten past and find their memories reawakening drawing them back to The Further and confronting literal demons from the past
So this film does well with using atmospheric horror to its advantage. Building up to the scares that happened. Noticing what’s in the background. Is that shadow just a shadow or something lurking.
When the Lipstick Demon makes it return, that is in a much bigger way. One thing I appreciated was we didn’t get a major backstory as it’s origin which I hope its stays that way. Most of the cast from the first two make their return,including one that shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.
I definitely enjoyed this one and easy to see why it was performing so well in the box office. It did mostly everything right and kept to what made the franchise work. This has always been a series of movies in the modern horror that knew how to draw feeling of dread and downright terror without relying on too many cheap tricks. The stories are always compelling and you always wanted more. This ending does well to tie everything in a red bow. So I would expect this to be the final film and hopefully it can just end here.
This movie is currently playing in theaters so if you haven’t gone to see it, I highly recommend you do so
