Exclusive Interview – Lin Shaye on Insidious: The Last Key, “silly” modern action heroines and the future of the franchise

Insidious: The Last Key is returning to UK cinemas on April 20th, so Tom Beasley took the opportunity to discuss the franchise with star Lin Shaye, as well as the opportunities for female stars today and the future of the Insidious movies…

Like any memorable horror franchise, the Insidious movies have shown remarkable staying power and considerable box office clout on relatively low budgets. At the centre of that success is Lin Shaye, who stepped forward to lead the franchise in its third installment and is back at the forefront of the narrative for fourth film The Last Key, which did solid business in cinemas at the beginning of this year.

To mark the upcoming cinema re-release of Insidious: The Last Key on April 20th, Shaye sat down with Flickering Myth to discuss the horror genre as a whole, as well as the state of play for women in modern

The Predator Trailer Will Drop at CinemaCon, Everyone Else Gets It in May
The Predator trailer is making its debut at CinemaCon this month. Director Shane Black has been teasing that we'll get our first look at the movie soon, but now he's clarified how things are going to go down. Either way, the lucky folks at CinemaCon, which takes place in Las Vegas from April 23 through 26, will be the first to get a sense of what this long-awaited relaunch of the Predator franchise is going to look like.

Shane Black took to Twitter recently to let fans know that the first teaser trailer for The Predator is coming in April. While that was accurate, he posted again recently to clarify that it is going to be exclusively for those attending CinemaCon. The trailer will then later be released in theaters, presumably alongside another major release. Black, on an unrelated note, also decided to take the opportunity to showcase his love for Insidious: The Last Key.

The Grudge Reboot Scares Up Summer 2019 Release Date

The Grudge reboot has locked down a 2019 summer release date. Sony is currently hoping to get in on the good days that horror has been enjoying at the box office in recent years by revisiting something that has done well for them in the past. They're currently getting the pieces in place so their reboot of The Grudge can get underway. It's apparently going well, as the studio has locked down an August release date for next year, putting it at the tail end of the summer movie season.

Sony will release The Grudge on August 16 of next year. Currently, the only other major release coming that day is from Universal in the form of an untitled event movie. It's possible that whatever this event movie is, or was going to be, Universal may end up moving it since it hasn't been announced yet. Or, since event implies some sort of blockbuster affair,

The Preview Reel: A Quiet Place and Blockers

Welcome to the “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. Steven Spielberg returned to blockbuster filmmaking with moderate success in the form of Ready Player One’s $53 million opening weekend. This week, it will battle with two well-received movies, A Quiet Place and Blockers, for first place at the box office. Let’s see if either the horror thriller or raunchy comedy are worth the price of admission.

A Quiet Place

What we are excited about: The first trailer sold this film for us right away. The first half of the trailer really conveys the quiet aspect of the film to terrifying effect, while the second half promises that the film will deliver the horror goods. It’s a unique concept and one that is sorely needed given the modern-day horror landscape. It’s also interesting that the film was written, directed, and stars John Krasinski,

Tuesday Blus: Insidious Fourtune for Robitel’s Franchise Entry

Scaring up one-hundred-and-sixty-million for its final worldwide box office take, the fourth installment of the James Wan originated franchise, Insidious: The Last Key was the second highest opener for the series and the highest grossing new release from January of 2018. That said, Adam Robitel’s contribution to the series doesn’t hold up as well on a re-watch, even if it allows Lin Shaye front and center stage (and arguably better than some of the other entries). Still, for those looking for something a little more noteworthy from the director, his first film, the inventive found footage horror title The Taking… Read the rest

As a director, Whannell recently helmed Insidious: Chapter 3, and he just wrote and directed the upcoming Upgrade. The […]

April is kicking off with an eclectic assortment of genre-related home entertainment releases, with Adam Robitel’s Insidious: The Last Key leading the charge on both Blu-ray and DVD (there’s also a nifty Insidious 4-pack hitting DVD as well).

However, their fun is quickly snubbed out when they stumble upon an illegal marijuana grow operation hidden in the greenery and protected by a bloodthirsty maniac.

Final Trailer For A Quiet Place Is Absolutely Terrifying

Many great horror films have a deceptively simple premise. It Follows, The Ring and The Descent can all be explained in just a couple of words – as can the upcoming A Quiet Place.

The tagline is “if they hear you, they hunt you,” with the concept being that the protagonists are terrorized by monsters that hunt by sound, meaning that the only way to stay alive is to be completely silent. It’s currently sitting at an unblemished 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (our review here) and promises to be the first breakout horror hit of the year.

Now, Paramount are taking advantage of this early hype with the final trailer for the film ahead of its release on April 6th, peppering in critical praise alongside spine-tingling clips from the movie itself. I was already pretty psyched up for the pic, and this latest trailer is just going to make the next

Wildling Review [SXSW 2018]

Fritz Böhm’s Wildling is a tooth-and-nail sensuality tale that’s endearingly genrefied upon first and second acts, but millimeters short of a howlin’ good finish. Woodland legends are told and beastly savages teased, all while coming-of-self complexities of the female experience run a strong thematic current. An adolescent girl who is left to fend for herself against aggressive teenage boys, departed parents and womanly welcomings that are otherwise treated as dangerously unleashed. So much to say while transformation hints are contained, relevant in a world of sheltered realities. Love in a time of hairballs – with much more to show, I promise.

Explorations center around Anna (Bel Powley), who is found heavily medicated and detached from reality. “Daddy” (Brad Dourif) kept her locked away from the world, feeding the child fables about “Wildlings” who’d come and eat her if she escaped into the thick wilderness. Doctors want to shove the scared,

Stir Of Echoes Duo Kevin Bacon And David Koepp Reunite For New Horror Pic

Blumhouse Productions’ horror/thriller You Should Have Left will reunite Stir of Echoes collaborators Kevin Bacon and David Koepp, reports Deadline.

Directed and adapted by Koepp from German author Daniel Kehlmann’s novel, You Should Have Left traces a similar vein to Stephen King’s horror classic The Shining. Following a screenwriter seeking seclusion alongside his family while slowly going mad, the film, which will star Bacon, should begin production at some point later this year.

Having first worked together on the adaptation of Richard Matheson’s novel, Koepp and Bacon will now reunite nearly twenty-years later. Their 1999 effort, the supernatural horror Stir of Echoes, saw Bacon portray Tom Witzky, a man haunted by frightening visions of a dead girl. The film didn’t receive overwhelming critical or financial praise due to the release of the much more famed Sixth Sense, but we imagine Koepp and Bacon will see at

The Grudge Reboot Gets Insidious Icon Lin Shaye

The Grudge Reboot Gets Insidious Icon Lin Shaye
Lin Shaye, best known for her work in the Insidious franchise, has joined the upcoming reboot of The Grudge. Sony is getting ready to head into production on a new version of The Grudge, which originally debuted for American audiences in 2004. The remake has been in the works for a while now, but seems to be coming together rather quickly and is starting to take shape. Shaye, the latest addition to the cast, is another modern horror icon who has boarded this increasingly intriguing "reimagining" of the supernatural tale.

Recently, it was announced that Andrea Riseborough and Demian Bichir will star in this new take on The Grudge, alongside John Cho. Bichir has become something of a staple in modern horror offerings himself, having starred in Alien: Covenant last year, and also set to feature in the upcoming Conjuring spin-off The Nun.

Insidious 5 is Reportedly in Development Because The Franchise is a Big Cash Cow

I am a huge fan of the Insidious horror franchise. I've enjoyed the film's that they have made and it turns out that the last movie in the franchise, Insidious: The Last Key, turned out the be the highest grossing film in the franchise! Here's a breakdown of how much each film has made:

Insidious: The Last Key (2018) — $164.4MInsidious Chapter 2 (2013) — $161.9MInsidious Chapter 3 (2015) — $113.0MInsidious (2011) — $97.M

According to Bloody-Disgusting, Bumhouse is reportedly developing a fifth Insidious film, which shouldn't come as a surprise. I'm just curious to see what the next chapter in the franchise will entail! One bit of information that the report does drop about the next film is that it will unlikely be another prequel.

Even though James Wan has remained a producer on the franchise over the course of the four films, it would be cool to see him come back to direct another one. I doubt it will happen,
