Unfortunately, Insidious fans are going to have to spend a little more time in The Further, waiting for Chapter 4 to hit theaters! Variety reports that the film has been pushed back from its planned October 20th, 2017 released date to make way for Universal Pictures’ and Sony Pictures’ “darkly comic” murder mystery, Half to Death. Apparently, the studios felt that moviegoers wouldn’t want to see two horror films during the Halloween season! Both films come from Blumhouse, hot off its massive success with Get Out.
Blumhouse has confirmed Insidious: Chapter 4 today, with the release of a new video. Premiering October 20, 2017, fan favorite Lin Shaye will be returning to reprise her role as Elise Rainer.
Co-creator of the series Leigh Whannell is writing the script. Jason Blum, Oren Peli and co-creator James Wan are producing. Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) is directing. Executive producers include Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Charles Layton.
