The 2010 horror film ‘Insidious’ was directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannell, a husband-and-wife team from Australia.
The Lambert family is the film’s focus as they attempt to flee from the evil spirits that seem to follow them around. Dalton, the son of these couples, is in an unexplained coma, and they feel a connection to him.
An ally seems to save them as the ghosts move in, but the situation is much more sinister and pervasive than the film’s title would imply. We decided to try and figure out what happened to Josh and his family after the finale kept us guessing until the end.
Is Insidious: The Dark Realm coming?
According to Jason Blum, the fifth film is expected to be released somewhere in 2022 after the film’s introduction at BlumFest, which took place in October 2020. But there is no official confirmation regarding this matter.
The producer provided no more information after that time. The release dates of the preceding four films, which were in April, September, June, and January, do not indicate a particular release pattern. They may shoot the sequel to have it ready for a 2022 Halloween release this year.
Insidious: The Dark Realm – more info
As of right now, plot specifics are scant, but we know that the fifth film is set in the year of Dalton’s college graduation, ten years after the conclusion of Chapter 2.
Wilson did provide some indications about what we can anticipate from Insidious 5 and how the fifth film links to the events of the previous two movies while discussing why he opted to make his directing debut with the film.
When you consider the mythology of Insidious and the characters of me and Tye, who were hypnotized, what does it do to a family after ten years? That’s something we don’t often get to explore.
What does seeing Dalton go to college do?” While seeing my son go to college, I was struck by how much he struggled to fit in. He possesses an undiscovered ability to travel through the astral plane and transfer his consciousness to other realms.
“Are we still hypnotized after so many years?” Does the trance still exist? Do you know what it means to you? What effect does it have on your relationship? What impact does it have on the connection between a parent and son?
Chapter 2 ended with Josh and Dalton allowing their memories of The Further and all of its horrors, including the Bride in Black and the Lipstick-Face Demon, to be repressed once again.
We’ll have to wait and discover what swayed Josh and Dalton to return to the spirit world for this to be an insidious film. But as of now, there is no official confirmation on what is going to happen in Insidious 5.
Insidious: The Dark Realm Possible Cast
Josh Lambert’s son Dalton, played by Ty Simpkins, is the sole cast member who is expected for the fifth film.
After she died in the first film, Lin Shaye has been a constant presence as Elise Rainier. As a result, we can expect her to return as Elise’s ghost, along with her coworkers Specs and Tucker.
Before the announcement of Insidious 5, Shaye had said that she would be interested in returning in September 2020. ComingSoon.net quotes her as saying, “I’m OK with anything, if we come back, I’m in the future, so that will be different.”
“For me, it was a wonderful journey as a character and as a plot… Now that it’s etched in my mind, I’d be delighted if there was a follow-up.”
Rose Byrne and Barbara Hershey, who last appeared in the series in Insidious: Chapter 2, as Renai Lambert and Josh’s mother Lorraine, have yet to be confirmed as returning cast members. This pair was featured in the film Insidious: The Last Key.
While Patrick Wilson is making his directorial debut, Scott Teems, the writer of Halloween Kills, has penned the screenplay based on a tale by the franchise’s co-creator Leigh Whannell. Fans have to wait until an official confirmation regarding the film arrives.
