Entertainment Weekly has unveiled a fresh image from the upcoming horror sequel, ‘Insidious: The Red Door,’ building anticipation for its theatrical release on July 7. This time, the supernatural dynamics take a new turn as Dalton (played by Ty Simpkins), now grown up, grapples with the terrors emanating from the Further. Serving as a direct continuation of ‘Insidious 2,’ this installment marks the fifth chapter in the acclaimed horror franchise. Brace yourself to traverse a parallel dimension, home to unimaginable malevolence.
In this spine-chilling narrative, it would be inconceivable to omit Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) from the Lambert family’s harrowing saga. Once again, the couple must confront the perils tied to their son’s connection with the Further. A decade has passed since their previous encounter, and it is now time for Dalton to embark on his college journey. Fortunate enough to secure admission to a prestigious institution, the family sets out on a road trip to settle him into his dorm. However, their plans take a sinister turn when the demons from their past resurface to haunt them. The Lamberts are compelled to venture deep into the Further, confronting their deepest fears head-on.
When the franchise debuted in 2010, the Lamberts initially believed their house to be haunted due to the inexplicable occurrences surrounding them. However, their relocation did not deter the supernatural encounters, as Renai witnessed another ghostly manifestation. Seeking answers, the family enlisted the help of psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) and discovered that it was Dalton’s connection to the Further that drew these hauntings, unrelated to their physical dwellings. Yet, even armed with knowledge, they couldn’t elude the clutches of the demonic shadow realm, leading to Josh’s possession by the end of the first film.
