Director Adam Robitel’s Insidious: Chapter 4 was due to be unleashed on October 20th, Halloween, but things have now changed and the film will not be coming out this year. We just learned that the fourth installment has a new date and is scheduled for January 5, 2018.
In a recent chat with the guys over at Daily Dead, actress Lin Shaye revealed some information of Elise’s beginnings, and will continue directly after the final of Chapter 3:
“You 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.
So it starts out in a very jovial, happy place and then goes downhill from there. 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.”
The film stars Javier Botet, Lin Shaye, Spencer Locke, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Bruce Davison, Angus Sampson as Tucker and Leigh Whannell as Specs.
