Adam Robitel’s Insidious: Chapter 4 was set to be released on October 20, 2017, just in time for Halloween. Unfortunately, news has come that they film has been delayed. The new installment of the franchise will now arrive on January 5, 2018 instead.
In Chapter 4 Lin Shaye reprises her role as Elise Rainer, a parapsychologist. The film will take us back to the Elise’s beginning and will pick up where Chapter 3 ended.
Shaye revealed a few details of the film to Daily Dead.
You meet Elise at a very different point in her life. It takes place right after the end of Chapter 3, when she walks off with Specs and Tucker and they’re starting their company, Spectral Sightings, and they are now living at her home. They’re like her two sons, her two bad sons.
So it starts out in a very jovial, happy place and then goes downhill from there. And downhill meaning uphill, though. It’s a fantastic story and it took me back into what made Elise who she is. You meet my family, my mother, my father—we go back to my hometown, which is in New Mexico. And so that’s where this takes place and her quest to find the bad guy that’s been haunting her. It’s a really wonderful story. I think the fans will really, really enjoy it. And it’s scary on levels they’re not going to expect.
Josh Stewart, Kirk Acevedo, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Angus Sampson and Caitlin Gerard will co-star along with Leigh Whannell who also penned the script.
We do have some good news for you, Christopher Landon’s Half to Death will be released in Insidious: Chapter 4’s place. It centers on a young woman who is trapped in a vicious cycle of death and must solve the mystery of who is trying to killer her and why before it’s too late.
