According to Jason Blum, the producer of “Insidious: The Red Door”, the latest addition to the Insidious franchise might mark a temporary conclusion. In this upcoming horror film, the Lambert family endures another wave of demonic torment, a decade after the events depicted in “Insidious” and “Insidious: Chapter 2.” The movie primarily focuses on the characters of Josh Lambert, portrayed by Patrick Wilson, and Dalton Lambert, portrayed by Ty Simpkins, with both actors reprising their roles from previous installments.

In an interview with Discussing Film, Blum disclosed that there are currently no intentions for future Insidious movies following Insidious: The Red Door. Blum hinted that if another Insidious installment were to emerge, it would not be in the near future. Please see Blum’s complete statement below:

You better see this Insidious, it’s the last one! (laughs) To give a more serious answer, [The Red Door] is going to be the last we’re going to see of Insidious for a while. It may not be a forever rest, but it’s certainly going to be a very long rest. So, if someone comes up with some idea in 10 years, who knows? But there’s not a plan – as there has been with every prior Insidious movie – there’s no current plan in place for number six.

Will The Red Door Really Be The End Of Insidious?

Insidious: The Red Door, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Insidious: The Last Key, marks a significant milestone in the franchise. Serving as a fitting conclusion, this installment takes place long after the events of the previous films, making it the perfect bookend to the entire series.

With a primary focus on Dalton and Josh, who were both ensnared in the clutches of the Further in Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2, Insidious: The Red Door brings their narratives full circle. This deliberate emphasis on these key characters adds a poignant and essential touch to the franchise’s conclusion.

Blum’s recent comments about Insidious: The Red Door mark a potential end to the main series of movies, which revolve around the Lambert family and paranormal investigator Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). However, there are already plans for an Insidious spinoff called Thread: An Insidious Tale, featuring Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani. While Insidious: The Red Door may signal a pause in the main franchise, it doesn’t necessarily rule out future entries within the same universe.

If a sequel to Insidious: The Red Door were to be crafted, it may feature an older Simpkins reprising his role as Dalton—an intriguing concept hinted at by Wilson. Perhaps, the central narrative of the Insidious franchise could revolve around Dalton’s encounters with the Further, evolving with his growth and transformation. However, for the time being, it appears that Insidious: The Red Door will temporarily lay this spine-chilling franchise to rest.
