Horror movie icon Lin Shaye, who has been a staple in the ‘Insidious’ franchise admits that she is unsure what is in store for the future of the horror franchise.
Following 2018’s ‘Insidious: The Last Key’, the second highest grossing film in the franchise, fans have been wondering if the franchise would continue.
“I know [my character is] dead, okay. I’m finally, really dead, and only in the Further in whatever [sequel] they do” Shaye said, per Bloody Disgusting. “There was some talk at one point – [but] nothing’s been talked about further. I think Blumhouse is so busy right now with so many things.
“I was nervous about the fourth one – part of me went, ‘Are they going to squeeze out another one?’ I was glorified by the fact that it was so successful and people loved the story. For me, it was heaven. It really was.
“But I don’t know the answer,” she continues. “I know there’s been some talk of a possible [fifth Insidious], and I’ve heard talk about an outline, and it wouldn’t have Elise featured – I am seriously in the Further,” she clarified.
“I know [co-creator] James [Wan] had thoughts about going back to the first Insidious and exploring that family,” she adds with a disclaimer that she has no idea if this is what they’d end up doing. “That would be fun, but I also don’t want to beat a horse – if it’s it, and people go, ‘Gee I wish there was another one,’ well, too bad,” she laughs.
