The creative minds behind the hit Insidious franchise bring you the most horrifying chapter of the series, Insidious: The Last Key. In this gripping Blumhouse film, Lin Shaye reprises her role as parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier, who returns to her family home to face the unrelenting demons that have plagued her since childhood. Accompanied by her two investigative partners, Specs and Tucker, Elise must delve deeper into the Further to unlock the mystery and destroy her greatest fear.

Couple of comments: this movie is a sequel to Insidious 3, which itself was a prequel to the first two. So yes, a sequel to the prequel. All the expected players are here, first and foremost Leigh Whannell, who has written all 4 movies, and returns as Elise's sidekick Specs, but of course also Lin Shaye as Elise. You may recall that when the first Insidious came out in 2010, it was received well by both critics and audiences alike for offering something different in the horror genre, Now 3 movies later, it is very clear that Whannell, and hence the franchise, has run out of fresh ideas. The "new angle" being played is that we get insights as to Elise's childhood, but that only gets you so far. There isn't a single "scary" moment as such in the film, as what unfolds on the big screen has been done before in the earlier Insidious movies. The proof is in the Rotten Tomatoes pudding: whereas the first Insidious has a very respectable 66 Fresh rating, "The Last Key" gets a punishing 25 Fresh rating. There comes a point when it is clear that the movie makers are simply squeezing this for every last nickel they can get, and I can tell you that this for sure is my last time going to see an "Insidious" movie. (Not that this will stop a Chapter 5, as in the closing scene of "The Last Key", Elise accepts yet another new case...)
"Insidious: The Last Key" opened wide this weekend. The Friday evening screening where I saw this at was attended very nicely, most by kids in their teens and twenties. The audience seemed to like it okay, although there was plenty of hooting and hollering during the so-called "scary" scenes. If you love the "Insidious" franchise, keep your expectations low and maybe, just maybe, you'll enjoy this. Of course I encourage you to check it out, be it in the theater, on Amazon Instant Video, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
The main problem with this movie is severe plot holes and ideas that are shown and quickly forgotten about to move the main story which will leave you wondering....But what about this..... The worst offense being the obvious foreshadowing that takes the fun out of the movie. The other problem is that about the first 10-15 minutes of the movie with Elise and the Boys could have been condensed to about 3 minutes and could have used that time to answer the plot holes.
Oh yeah, and if the head scratching of time travel in the Further confuses and annoys you from Insidious 2, then you will love knowing.....it is back for 1 scene that makes no sense at all and serves no real purpose to the overall movie.
Overall, it is not a bad movie but it is not a good movie. It is just meh. The writing seems lazy and it is not as scary as it could be and has fallen into using horror movie tropes to move the plot along.. If you are a big fan of Insidious, go watch it in the theater, if you just like it and are indifferent to seeing it in the theater then wait for it to come out on Redbox and don't bother buying it
Spoilers: Read at your own risk:
What is the deal with the father? He does not believe in anything Elise sees but is somehow being controlled by the demon, how is that even possible and how did it happen?
The suitcases? Why does he want nurses so bad and why did the y not show up int he Further. Yes, I know they are in the previews and were probably deleted for time, but seriously, they spend a small chunk of time of the movie on it and goes nowhere with it
The prisoners that were killed in the prison. Is the demon somehow connected to the prison and where were the prisoners?? Probably in the cells with the non-existent nurses
Anna....She escaped from being tortured and the first person she sees, She doesn't bother to ask for help or continue to risk it all for her safety, just stand there and do nothing......the whole time......and never try to escape as Elise is running away from home
It's like a burrito stuffed with everything but flavour, with lots of nods to the originals and that's part of the problem as this movie is so lack luster with the creative aspect, that it should've tried to have it's own voice instead of being a mere whisper of the first two.
Remember in the sequel, where we get all kinds of great exposotion on the the creepy old lady that wasn't even an old lady?
Well, we get none of that here.
Wanna know more about Wheezy MaCoil Stains, the movies new big baddy and why he does what he does and whats with the keys?
Well, too bad.
What happened to her Dad, btw? No mention ever.
The main villain was dispatch in a rather anticlimatic way...like he was nothing.
A lot of style and absolutely no substance...watching this movie did nothing for me and takes the horror genre down a peg.
I won't mention the ghostbuster wannabe's as they will bear the brunt of most critical reviews except to say "ENOUGH ALREADY"!!!
