Insidious : The Last Key is the continuation of Insidous chapters with Elise Rainier as the main character. Though I said it's a continuation but it seems Insidious series keep on producing prequel as the series goes. This time audience is shown the origin of Elise as a kid and the demon that she released that'll become the main antagonist in this chapter. The chapter also introduce us to Elise's mother and father Gerald and Audrey Rainier played by Josh Stewart & Tessa Ferrer. They play the part quite well I must say as Josh Stewart is always a good actor to play somewhat psycho character, in my opinion.
Now, for the story line and my overall opinion on this movie is, it's quite a disappointment really. A ghost movie always rated lower than any other movies and I think it is because it isn't scary enough or the story line isn't chilly enough. Most of current ghost movie is all about shocking or frightening the audience and though this movie did has that element, it only has a few of it. As for the story line, the twist for Ted Garza character and Elise's father is quite good but it can't cover the lack of big punch that the audience needed as we expect it is the last chapter. However, you might find they are not done yet with the series.
Elise character is doing what's she always doing, enter The Further land to fight a demon. It is all good until she enter the land. The demon with keys hand isn't so frightening anymore. The demon looks like the one in Insidious 3. At the end of the movie the same as other Insidious prequel. the previous characters were introduced and it rotating once again. Since this time I got the tickets and a shirt for free from TV 9 Malaysia (Thank you very much! XD ), I think it makes me feel like the movie is not so bad while they are, a bit.
However, I'll say this, the director Adam Robitel is fail to create a chilly environment for the audience that would make them wanting for more. Compared to Annabelle : Creation, Insidious : The Last Key is a weak prequel. Alas, some people might appreciate the fright and twist the movie have to offer. All things considered, I think this movie is just the same as other Insidious movies only with different backgrounds, characters and some twist. Like I said some people might enjoy the movie especially the ones that follow the saga as they would get a peek of Elise's past life. That being said, I hope you guys have a great time watching this movie tomorrow. Insidious : The Last Key, is slightly dissaprove by Ibrahim Khaziq!
P/S : Enjoy your movie.
