413 Apple Tree Lane is where everything began. Director Adam Robitel and producer Leigh Whannell had their hands full with this supernatural horror project: Insidious 4: The Last Key. Directing this movie cost a total of $95 million; however, box office only produced $56.2 million off of the movie.

The storyline of the movie goes as follows: the Spectral Sightings Crew Elise (Lin Shaye), Specs (Leigh Whannell), and Tucker (Angus Sampson) all travel to Five Keys, New Mexico, on the job. A call made by Ted Garza (Kirk Acevedo), the current owner of this paranormal house of horrors where the most treacherous things have happened in the past and the present, has brought them to this place. When Elise was young, she grew up with her parents and her brother Christian. As a child, Elise would see ghost and spirits which scared her brother. Her father never approved of these abilities, while her mother tried to understand what she was going through. The movie focuses on the adversities she faces with this ability.

Insidious was rated 33% on the tomato meter while being given a 53% audience score. Some critics gave interesting feedback about how the Insidious films are similar to one another.

“Four films into the series, the layout of the spirit realms has become too familiar. A soundstage of fog machines and grotesquerie that Robitel and Whannell haven’t populated with any fresh shocks,” Scott Tobias from the National Public Radio said.

While the Insidious films were on the rise at first, repeated plotlines and public disinterest caused the movie series to fall down a steep decline.
