The Insidious franchise has been one of the best and most underrated horror franchises of the last decade. The fourth movie in the franchise doesn’t miss a beat, it’s actually better than the previous couple. The key (no pun intended) to it might be the return of Lin Shaye who reprises her role as the parapsychologist Dr. Rainier. This time Dr. Rainier must face her biggest hurdle and that’s going back and ridding the evil from her own home.

I enjoyed the plot twist and the return of Lin Shaye, who is an important and central figure in this franchise. There are a few genuine moments in the movie that will make you flinch. Some nice unexpected scares. What the movie does best is that it sticks to the narrative. What I mean by that is that it sticks to the franchise core principles and maintains the familiar look and tone of the movie. It doesn’t try to reinvent itself, it stays the course and delivers on what fans of the franchise have grown to appreciate. Clever story that’s well executed. This franchise knows what it is and what the audience wants. They deliver all that and more with The Last Key.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
