The fourth installment in Blumhouse’s wildly successful Insidious franchise is being postponed until 2018 after originally shooting for an October 20th release date. Fans of the series’ hallmark supernatural metaphysics will have to wait until January 5th to see astral projectionist Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reteaming with her ghost-busting sidekicks Tucker and Specs (played by Angus Sampson and franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell respectively).
The postponement also comes with an announcement regarding another new Blumhouse project.
Fans of the Insidious horror franchise will have to wait until next year for the fourth installment of the film. Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures’ Insidious: Chapter 4 is moving from its original Halloween-hopeful from a date of October 20 to January 5, 2018. Instead, Universal will drop Blumhouse’s other horror offering Half to Death on Oct. 20th. The latter was directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).

Half to Death is being described as “an original from Blumhouse about a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) who relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.”
Nothing has been revealed yet regarding the plot for Insidious: Chapter 4, except that it will deal with a terrifying case that is very personal to Elise (Shaye). Check out the trailer and synopsis for Insidious: Chapter 3, released in 2015, below.
Official Synopsis: When teenager Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) senses that her late mother is trying to contact her, she seeks help from gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). However, Elise’s tragic past makes her reluctant to use her abilities. After Quinn is attacked by a malevolent entity, her father (Dermot Mulroney) pleads with Elise for help. With support from two parapsychologists, Elise ventures deep into The Further — where she finds a powerful demon with an insatiable craving for human souls.
