The critical reception to the latest “Insidious” entry “Insidious: The Last Key” may be a little lukewarm, but the film is doing gangbusters at the box office. It has actually earned more in its opening weekend than the third film, which is pretty remarkable. So naturally, there will most likely be more “Insidious” films, but could one of them be a crossover with “Sinister”?
While speaking with CinePop Jason Blum was asked about the future of two famous Blumhouse properties. The first being whether we’d get another “Insidious” movie to which Blumhouse stated that if “The Last Key” does well than we probably would see more “Insidious” films. In fact, he compared it to the “Paranormal Activity” franchise and said he’d like to beat the number of sequels that franchise got.
The second property was “Sinister” which hasn’t had a lot of buzz around it since the release of “Sinister 2.” However, Blum actually dropped a pretty big revelation about this film and it’s possible future. It seems, that at one point, the worlds of “Sinister” and “Insidious” almost crossed over. Here’s what Blum had to say:
We almost did “Insidious” and “Sinister” and I still feel like we might do that. So I think so. I think we’re gonna cross our worlds at some point. I don’t know how yet, but we’re gonna try.
I’d be really curious to see how they would pull this off as, to me, the two films are pretty different beasts. “Sinister” is a more violent and visceral film than the “Insidious” films have ever been. So for them to crossover one would series would either have to get darker or one would get a little less violent. It’d be interesting to see what sort of decisions they’d have to make to make the films work in a shared universe.
Given how it seems like the idea is still being spitballed, I wouldn’t expect an announcement to be made any day now, but we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on out to see if anything develops.
