The Insidious series started in 2011. The first movie was about a little boy who falls off ladder and haunts people. In the fourth movie there is a little clip of that same little boy of what happened to him but he doesn’t really matter to this movie. Somehow when the little boy showed up, the whole setting of the movie changes. The movie is called The Last Key and I think it’s a great title because the monster, she’s looking for, holds all the keys to each door and this also has this power on locking people behind these door.
The Last Key isn’t the scariest movie out of the four, but it definitely still gave some heart to heart feelings with certain characters. The movies focus more on the main character from the series, Elise Rainier, finally reveals her story about where she’s from and how she got her power. Shockingly enough, there is someone else who shares the same abilities.
The story takes place in the old house that Rainier lived in as a young child. She was not happy with going back to that house but she does anyways and discovers more things about herself that she didn’t know. She also comes to an understand of what happened to her parents and it wasn’t her fault. But if you haven’t seen the first three movies of Insidious, you don’t need to. Just watch the fourth movie and you just might think something is really wrong with this lady.
I’m not a fan of scary movies because I don’t like going to sleep knowing there’s a scary monster hiding in my closet or under the bed. In general, horror movies do not appeal to me, yet my friend still dragged me to the theatre. I was put on a double date with my cousin and for her it was a plus because she was able to become closer to her date. As for me, I wanted to leave due to the fact that he kept getting scared.
I expected to be frightened myself, but instead I just kept thinking: when did scary movies get boring? This movie was not scary at all. If I ever jumped, it because they’re “jumpscares” where random things came up. I did like the red door — but I won’t tell you when it happens or what it means.
I enjoyed learning more about where Rainier came and this story helps me and other understand the other stories that were hidden in the other.
If you like quiet dates and just watching a movie, I suggest you go watch this movie with someone who talks too much so you don’t have to listen to their voice. But it’s also a good date if you want to pretend to be scared to be held.
If you really want to be scared, though, I recommend renting the second Insidious because they have more monsters that create more plot twists. I also prefer the Conjuring over Insidious.
