Elise Goes Home in Terrifying New ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Trailer

If you’ve seen The Taking of Deborah Logan, one of the scariest horror films in recent years, you’re probably excited about next year’s Insidious: The Last Key, which was directed by that film’s director. And judging by the new trailer, which premiered during “The Walking Dead” last night, Adam Robitel has brought the terrifying goods once more.

We’ll be learning more about lead franchise character Elise Rainier in the upcoming fourth installment, while also meeting up with demonic entities both new and old.

Turn the lights off. Turn the volume up. And head back into The Further below.

Insidious: The Last Key arrives in theaters on January 5, 2018.

“In the supernatural thriller, which welcomes back franchise standout Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.”

Josh Stewart, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Kirk Acevedo, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke and Caitlin Gerard also star.

The film is written by co-creator Leigh Whannell (Saw), who wrote the trilogy and directed Chapter 3. Insidious regulars Jason Blum (The Purge series, Get Out), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and co-creator James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) produced.



  • In Portugal we have this trailer, I think is completely different and exclusive here and in my opinion the sound of this trailer is GREAT.

    It’s subtitled, fortunately we don’t like to watch dubbed films (except the animations).

    (Also, congrats to the trailer for showing what looks to be every jump scare in the movie.)

    • lupe

      that actually made me laugh. like “ahhh mom, i said leave me alone!”

    • Necro

      Said the same damn thing!

  • chandler

    To give credit to the Insidious films, even when the scares don’t work, they at least go all out on them.

  • Alanmac

    I don’t really care for the Insidious films but this trailer is pretty damn good.

    So is this a prequel to Insidious 1 & 2 but sequel to Insidious 3? I’m a bit lost in this franchise

    • Nicolas Caiveau

      Yep that’s it. The order is 3, 4, 1 and 2.

      • pablitonizer

        thanks for clarifying…what a messy timeline

        • Nicolas Caiveau

          If you think that’s messy, try to watch the Pupper Master series ! The order is 7, 3, 9, 10, 11, 1, 6, 2, 4, 5, 8 and 12 !
          Insidious is very simple. You have the first two movies. And then the prequels.

          • pablitonizer

            LOL, I never saw any puppet master film but I’ve always thought they were unrelated with one another! You just opened my eyes…still interested in cheap puppets though. I truly like insidious but I feel they realized killing one of the most amazing characters in the franchise was the biggest mistake and that’s how timelines get fucked up

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            Oh but even dead, Elise will still be there in ghost form when they finally decide to make a “real” sequel. But yeah, you’re right, they’re making prequels just to have her alive. But as those are new stories, with other ghosts/demons, the chronology doesn’t really matter. It’s just Insidious 1 & 2 that are one big story (like Halloween 1 and 2). 3 and 4 are other stories. There’s no necessity to watch them in the chronological order, the release order is perfectly fine.

            Just like the Conjuring movies, the order is The Nun, Annabelle Creation, Annabelle, The Conjuring 1, The Conjuring 2. But you can watch them in the order you want as each movie is a different story.

          • pablitonizer

            yes, I couldn’t agree more! However, you must have noticed the redface demon in the trailer which means they’re still attaching the franchise to the original insidious (?), so if you haven’t seen it then you may feel like “Why people is so happy about this demon?” I think The conjuring spin-offs are different, they’re isolated and don’t talk about the warrens at all. I just hope this insidious movie ends with a phone call from the Lambert family asking her for help…and then if there’s an insidious 5 I want to see what the fuck happened in the end of insidious 2 with the girl motionless and Elise staring at the ceiling above her…that was pretty amazing to me

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            Yes, that’s why the release order is the best. You can watch them in the chronological order once you already know the full story. Otherwise a few things will be spoiled for you.

          • HalesTales

            Ah! Thank you!! I thought that was going to bring the Red Faced Demon because they didn’t destroy or banish him or anything. You even hear the creaking. So I thought he’d go right for Elise when she’s permanently in the afterlife. I liked that antagonist, so I want a conclusion to that arc!!

          • pablitonizer

            It is a fantastic antagonist! One of the scariest things in Insidious was that effin demon, and it was totally missed in Insidious 2. Perhaps in The Last key they expand more on its mythology and I TRULY hope we get a real sequel to Indisious 2 with the demon’s return and the Lambert family in need for help once more….

          • Necro

            Holy and F**k!

  • topknot01

    That whistle noise wasn’t scary or even startling, it was just fucking annoying.

  • Creepshow

    This is the only movie to look forward to in the coming weeks.


    Day of the Dead: Bloodlines was purposely left out because that is a certifiable no fucking brainer.
    The power of Schaech will run through our veins with the with the heat of a thousand suns. My face has already melted off with this insane anticipation.

    • xcalibrate ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Oh my God! Is Schaech in a new film? How did this bombshell pass me by? It’s already the best film of 2018, and no mistake. The number of times this man has been overlooked for an Oscar made even DiCaprio blush.

  • Necro

    4 things:

    1) I loved ‘The Taking of Deborah Logan’! Creepy as Hell!

    2) Quite honestly this looks really good, now that being said I’m not letting the trailer spoil me either, I’ve learned not to let that happen a long time ago. It just looks like Robitel got another script/story that fits perfectly in his directorial style.

    3) From what we’ve been shown this looks like it should’ve been the second or third film in this franchise, not the fourth. Fourth films shouldn’t look this good! Not that I’m complaining!

    4) I hope all the ‘good’ stuff isn’t being shown in these trailers! One thing I hate about films that rely on ‘jump scares’ is that when you see the trailer(s) it’s all fine and dandy the film looks really good, but then when you’re sitting and watching the actual film you know what’s coming already as far as the ‘jump scares’ are concerned. Now I know that a few things will be spoiled, but hopefully not all of them!
