Horror. Is. Hot.
Between Split, Get Out, and IT, our genre absolutely decimated the box office in 2017. Proof that this wasn’t just an anomaly was in the success of Jigsaw, the eighth Saw film that performed way better than expected. The question became, would this trend continue in 2018? Yup.
How about this one…
The Adam Robitel-directed Insidious: The Last Key is officially the highest grossing Insidious film in the entire franchise. Yes, even more than James Wan‘s 2011 indie that grossed $97 million at the box office worldwide. In fact, The Last Key is pushing against diminishing returns by topping all of the Insidious films with a $164,365,832 worldwide take as of this writing. Thanks to Francesco for pointing this out to us.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Insidious: The Last Key (2018) — $164.4M
- Insidious Chapter 2 (2013) — $161.9M
- Insidious Chapter 3 (2015) — $113.0M
- Insidious (2011) — $97.0M
The fourth film in the franchise is a prequel that recounts the origins of parapsychologist Elise Rainier, played by Lin Shaye. A fifth Insidious is happening, sources tell Bloody Disgusting, and that it’s unlikely to be another prequel.
