Insidious: The Last Key director explains why horror movies are hot property at present

With hits like The Conjuring, Get Out, Happy Death Day, and 10 Cloverfield Lane — just to name a few — the horror genre feels truly revitalized these days. This trend seems set to continue into the new year, and the director of Insidious: The Last Key has a theory for horror’s rise in popularity. During a Los Angeles press junket for Insidious: The Last Key, director Adam Robitel offers his explanation for why the horror genre has had such a spike in popularity over the last few years (via CinemaBlend):

“Well speaking to larger horror as having a moment, because we’re seeing larger movies like Marvel and then everything else in the middle has gone away, people want to be scared in a crowd and a catharsis so I think that’s the reason at least horror in general is here.”

It’s certainly an exciting time to be a horror fan.

Trailer For The Horror Thriller Truth Or Dare - Refuse The Dare and Die

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Blumhouse Productions'' new horror thriller Truth or Dare. Blumhouse has a string of really good successful horror movies like Get Out, which I loved; and Happy Death Day, which was surprisingly really good.

Will a cheesy sounding movie like Truth or Dare also surprise, or will it disappoint? There are certain elements in this trailer that I liked, and others that I didn't, so we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out. It's kinda like It Follows meets Final Destination.

Leigh Whannell Explains Why Insidious Is Different From Other Horror Series

Genuinely scaring people is an art form. A successful horror movie needs to keep its audience on their toes, fearful of the unknown and what’s to come. This means every film in the crowded genre is trying to do at least one thing different. So, what’s different about Insidious – one of the most wildly successful horror franchises of the modern era with the three films raking in an impressive $370 million at the box office – then?

Well, Cinema Blend recently interviewed Leigh Whannell and Lin Shaye, writer and star of the upcoming Insidious: The Last Key, and here’s what the former explained:

“I mean for me, the first thing I think of is The Further, which is like, when we did that first movie we wanted to do kind of a classic ghost movie, that’s something that James [Wan] and I have always loved, your classic haunted house/ghost film.

Biggest Hits and Flops of 2017

Biggest Hits and Flops of 2017
There were plenty of winners and losers at the domestic box office this year since the overall 2017 number is still about 3% behind last year. Here we highlight the surprise successes — and the films that were originally intended to get franchises started but didn’t quite make the grade. So “Justice League,” as disappointing as it was, isn’t on the flops list, given that it grossed over $635 million worldwide.

The biggest successes —

Wonder Woman

Global box office: $821 million

Production budget: $120 million

Why it’s on the list: Who didn’t like “Wonder Woman”? The collaboration between Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins provided a fresh, light-hearted look at the superhero genre and became the one unqualified success in Warner Bros.-DC Entertainment’s efforts to compete with the Marvel-Disney universe. It has already set “Wonder Woman 2” for Nov. 2, 2019.

Girls Trip

Global box office: $138 million

Production budget: $19 million

The 15 Best Horror Movies of 2017

Tom Beasley examines the best horror movies of 2017, from sharp social satire to an evil clown…

The reaction to 2017’s horror movie slate has, bizarrely, been one of surprise. It’s as if a year of impressive scary movies is somehow a rarity, when in fact the genre has consistently delivered strong movies in recent years.

What is true, however, is that 2017 has been an uncommonly good year for the darker side of cinema. The mainstream corner of horror has produced its most successful movie of all time, while the arthouse world has also delivered the goods and there’s even an Oscar contender in the genre.

But first, let’s head Down Under for one of the nastiest films of the year…

15. Killing Ground

Australia is home to some of the most grim, macabre movies in modern cinema, from Justin Kurzel’s troubling true crime tale Snowtown to the tourism slasher Wolf Creek.

Terrifying TV Spot For Insidious: The Last Key Brings The Jump Scares

Had things panned out differently, Insidious: The Last Key would have released in time for Halloween, which was sorely lacking in the ‘good scary movies’ department.

Barring Cult of Chucky, Jigsaw and Happy Death Day came and went without much fanfare, while the less said about The Snowman, the better. But there is light at the end of the tunnel (or should that be keyhole?), as The Last Key is prepped and ready to send a shiver down our spines early next month.

It’s the direct sequel to Insidious: Chapter 3, which itself was a prequel to the first two Insidious movies. Messy continuity aside, Insidious: The Last Key looks to be fluent in scares and unrelenting tension, as parapsychologist and all-around franchise lead Elise Rainier returns home to confront her innermost fears.

Featuring a cast comprised of Josh Stewart, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Kirk Acevedo, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke and Caitlin Gerard,
