Insidious: The Red Door Trailer Promises a Return to Form for the Franchise

I’m not going to lie, there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about Insidious: The Red Door (previously titled Insidious: Fear the Dark). The first two Insidious films are excellent, but once James Wan vacated the director’s chair, the franchise took a steep nosedive in quality. The last two movies were huge disappointments, so you’d be forgiven for wondering how this next one is going to turn out. Will it be a return to form for the series, or is it going to be another lackluster letdown? We obviously won’t know until we see it, but as I’ve said before, I think there are good reasons to be optimistic about this film. And now, we have yet another reason to add to that list. Sony just dropped the first trailer for Insidious: The Red Door, and it’s awesome.

Plot details are being kept largely under wraps, but the little bit we do know is pretty intriguing. This movie is set a decade after the events of the first two Insidious films, and it follows the same family, the Lamberts, as they come face to face with their demons one last time.

Remember, at the end of Insidious: Chapter 2, Josh and Dalton had their memories of the Further wiped away, so they don’t remember anything that happened in those original movies. However, they’re still subconsciously haunted by that terrible ordeal, and to rid themselves of their supernatural tormentors once and for all, they have to travel deep into the Further, where they’ll encounter enemies both old and new and some dark family secrets.

That plot synopsis alone is enough to get me hyped for Insidious: The Red Door, and when you add in the trailer, my excitement for the film goes through the roof. This trailer is chock-full of the creepy supernatural imagery these movies are known for, and seeing these awesome characters once again feels like visiting old friends I haven’t seen in years. It’s pretty much everything I could’ve wanted, so I’m more confident than ever that this movie will be a return to form for the beleaguered Insidious franchise.

Insidious: The Red Door is set to hit theaters on July 7.
