The trailer reveals more about the film’s plot and what can be expected, which includes a truly generic montage of jump scares and bland settings. If you watched any of the lowest rated horror films of the last few years, odds are many of the same scenes and tropes from those are present in this trailer.
It’s been said that these films are like some great return to form for the horror genre, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. These are the types of movies that drag the horror genre’s name into the ground and make fools of its fans.
In a time when the genre is slowly starting to become a little riskier and more creative, I was hoping we could get more than a CGI ghost with keys for fingers that goes boo. I guess not. Let’s just hope this is the last time, and if the January release date is any indication, it probably will be.
Insidious: The Last Key is directed by Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) and written by Leigh Whannell, who has penned all the films in the series and directed the previous entry, 2015’s Insidious: Chapter 3. The movie is produced by produced by Jason Blum, Oren Peli, and James Wan.
