‘Face your demons’
Insidious: The Red Door is 2023 American supernatural horror film that follows the Lambert family ten years after the last instalment, as Dalton begins college. Also known as Insidious 5
Directed by actor Patrick Wilson who starred in the first two movies in the franchise (which were, of course, directed by James Wan from screenplays by Leigh Whannell). Wilson – who is making his directorial debut – stars.
The screenplay was written by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) based on a story by the aforementioned Leigh Whannell (The Invisible Man; Saw). Whannell also produced alongside Jason Blum, James Wan and Oren Peli.
The movie also stars Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Hiam Abbass, Lin Shaye, Andrew Astor and Juliana Davies.
Insidious: The Red Door will first be released in Belgium on July 5 and then in most countries internationally on the 6th and 7th (UK, USA).
In an interview with Screen Rant, Wilson revealed that the latest Insidious film is ” …something that I’m super passionate about, and there hasn’t been a day since they pitched me the idea that I haven’t been all in. It’s been a lot of work by Scott Teems, the writer, and me. And Leigh Whannell has helped out obviously a ton, and of course, Blumhouse is a great partner. I’ve done a bunch of stuff with them, so I couldn’t be happier to have my first experience with a very helpful and comfortable group of people that, for some reason, trust me. So, we’ll see.”
Back in 2020, Wilson said: “I’m honoured and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious instalment, which will provide an amazing chance to unpack everything the Lamberts went through a decade ago, as well as deal with the consequences of their choices. Directing the movie is both professionally and personally a full-circle moment for me, and I am extremely grateful to be entrusted in continuing to tell this frightening and haunting story…”
