Insidious 4 The Last Key Review (2018)


Insidious, The Last Key is forth movie from Insidious franchise.

The Story

Insidious, The Last Key is about Elise Rainier.  We get to see her childhood nightmare and get to meet her parents.  Also she has a brother who plays key role in the movie.  In this movie, she finds herself back in her childhood house where the current owner is terrorized by a ghost in the house.  She is there to help the owner at the same time dealing with her childhood demon.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

I recommend watching all the previous Insidious series because each movie is connected to each other. This movie is continuation from Insidious 3 and prequel to first Insidious movie.

Overall, I really enjoy the Insidious series because it introduces the concept of “The Further”.  It is place where the dead goes.  It is almost like purgatory.  It is really creepy place.  We are also introduced to those few who has a gift to travel to “The Further”.

In my opinion, Insidious 2 is the best one.  Unfortunately, Insidious, The Last Key is the worst one so far in the series because it didn’t really introduced anything new to the movie.  We are introduced to Elise’s childhood past and get to meet her family, but that is pretty much it.  Rest of the movie is just repackaged version of the previous movies.  I do like the new ghost introduced in the movie.  It looks really creepy and creative but it didn’t play big part in the movie.  The movie didn’t explain much about this ghost.

At the end of the movie, it connects nicely to the first Insidious movie.  At the same, it re-introduced to the ghost that resembles Darth Maul from Star Wars.  It’s red faced evil ghost with horns that came out in first two Insidious.  It appears that there will be more Insidious movie in the future.

In the Nutshell

Insidious, The Last Key is nothing special but it isn’t terrible either. But if you are a fan of Insidious series, it is must see because it connects previous Insidious movies together. [3 out of 5 stars]
