‘Insidious The Red Door’ movie review: A horror film that fails to scare

'Insidious The Red Door'

If you are a fan of the Insidious franchise, you might be tempted to watch the latest installment, “Insidious The Red Door”. However, I would advise you to save time and money and skip this. Here’s why.

First of all, the plot is weak and predictable. The movie follows the same formula as the previous ones: a family moves into a haunted house, strange things start to happen, they call a psychic to help them, and they discover a dark secret in the basement. The only difference is that this time, the secret is a red door that leads to a hellish dimension where evil spirits lurk. Sounds familiar? That’s because it is. The movie offers nothing new or original to the genre, and relies on cheap jump scares and clichés to keep the audience interested.

Secondly, the acting is mediocre and unconvincing. The cast consists of unknown actors who fail to deliver any emotion or depth to their characters. The main protagonist, Sarah, is supposed to be a strong and independent woman who fights for her family, but she comes across as bland and passive. Her husband, David, is supposed to be a supportive and loving partner, but he seems bored and detached. Their two children, Max and Lily, are supposed to be cute and innocent, but they are annoying and forgettable. The psychic, Elise, is supposed to be wise and experienced, but she is dull and repetitive.

Thirdly, the movie is a flop at the box office. According to the latest reports, the movie has only grossed $15 million worldwide in its first week of release, which is far below the expectations of the producers and the fans. The movie has also received negative reviews from critics and audiences alike, who have criticized its lack of originality, creativity, and scares. The movie has a rating of 3.2 out of 10 on IMDb, and a score of 18% on Rotten Tomatoes.

In conclusion, “Insidious The Red Door” is a disappointing and unnecessary sequel that fails to live up to the standards of the franchise. It is a waste of time and money for anyone who loves horror movies. I suggest you close the door on this one and watch something else instead.
