“Insidious Chapter 4” Story Details

Six months ago, the fourth installment of the hit horror film franchise “Insidious” was announced from Stage  Films and Blumhouse Productions. Now on its post-production stage, lead actress Lin Shaye shed some light on what Insidious Chapter 4 is about in an interview with Daily Dead:


Shaye told Daily Dead that the timeline of Insidious: Chapter 4 will begin shortly after the conclusion of Chapter 3:

“In general, it goes back to Elise’s beginnings. And you also meet Elise at a very different point in her life. It takes place right after the end of Chapter 3, when she walks off with Specs and Tucker and they’re starting their company, Spectral Sightings, and they are now living at her home. They’re like her two sons, her two bad sons [laughs].”

Shaye also discussed how Chapter 4 will explore Elise’s past and introduce viewers to her family:

“So it starts out in a very jovial, happy place and then goes downhill from there [laughs]. And ‘downhill’ meaning ‘uphill,’ though. It’s a fantastic story and it took me back into what made Elise who she is. You meet my family, my mother, my father—we go back to my hometown, which is in New Mexico. And so that’s where this takes place and her quest to find the bad guy that’s been haunting her. It’s a really wonderful story. I think the fans will really, really enjoy it. And it’s scary on levels they’re not going to expect.”

Shaye mentioned that Insidious: Chapter 4 screenwriter and co-star Leigh Whannell had a unique creative process for writing the new film:

“It was a fantastic script. Leigh Whannell, who’s written all of them, he really worked so hard on this. He actually went to a big, giant stone house in Spain, that was in the middle of nowhere, to write and be inspired.”

Directed by Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), the film also stars Josh Stewart, Spencer Locke, Javier Botet, Kirk Acevedo, Tessa Ferrer, Angus Sampson and Leigh Whannell.


“Insidious Chapter 4” arrives in cinemas October 2017 from Blumhouse Pictures and Stage 6 Films. Locally distributed by Columbia Pictures Philippines.
