So stupid I couldn't understand it
Verified purchase
This was boring until the last 1/4 of the movie and then it just got stupid. They threw everything but the kitchen sink at this movie trying to make it scary but all it did for me was make me impatient. All of the women ghosts looked alike, one girl is having fits while the other one is where? Doing what? Who knows. Who cares. The director knows nothing about building up to th climax. Everything was at the same value from the second half on.
I assume I'd have to drop 100 IQ points to understand this mess. I saw the first one and hated it but I saw all the 5 star ratings and I thought this one might be better. No such luck.

For anyone who loves this movie, WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THE KEY FINGERS? What are the odds of 2 perverts who keep women captive would live in the same house 50 years apart?
Good heavens do I detest this movie.

The Last Key: A Good Film, Not the Best Cut
Verified purchase
As a fan of the Insidious series, I purchased The Last Key hoping that it would be as good as the others, and in a lot of ways, it is. I really like Lin Shaye's character, and The Last Key really fills in a lot of the details about her background; her "gift" was the source of wonder and pain as she was growing up, and it lends a great deal to the story. The final cut of the film wasn't its best form, in my opinion; watching the deleted scenes, I found myself wishing that a good many, if not all of them, had been included as part of the film. (The alternate ending was interesting, but I'm glad they didn't use it). It seemed that the omitted scenes really fleshed out the the plot, and provided some excellent atmospherics and additional scares. I'm guessing that the film was trimmed to meet a set running time. I'm not sure if the Insidious franchise is enough of a money-maker at this point to warrant a Director's Cut of the The Last Key, but I believe it certainly deserves one.

It was ehhh
Verified purchase
It was ehhh. I would have liked it more if I didn't flat out pay for it. It's worth watching with a cable subscription, but I could've gone without owning it. I bought the last movie as well and was a bit disappointed, but this was worse. I'm a fan of this series (including The Conjuring) the last two was just meh.

Oh well. It's good enough for a date night to just roll into the sheets and watch. Maybe get a good laugh from someone that's willing to talk during the movie and find the humor in it. Otherwise, it's just another meh movie.

Mediocre, Assembly Line Horror from Blumhouse
Verified purchase
This is the fourth installment of the Insidious series and this time, the franchise aims for a kinder, gentler kind of horror movie. This is a Blumhouse movie and it is business as usual for the production house, aiming the movie at tweens, no real scares, no bloodshed, and a reliance on cheap, far too frequent jump scares, but there’s some fresh elements here as well. The Last Key wants to drop the horror vibe and go for a tender, feel good kind of approach, especially as the movie rounds the corner into the final act. I am sure some will like this warmer tactic, but I found it to be out of place and more the result of Leigh Whannell being out of ideas, so he just went for the lame duck finish. While The Last Key isn’t scary and does little to even try beyond the jump scares and sudden, loud audio cues, it does have a terrific sound design and a capable lead in Lin Shaye. She puts a lot into the role and turns in an effective performance, easily the highlight of the movie. I wish I could say the same for the comic relief of her two helpers, but the humor is lifeless and depressing to watch. I liked The Last Key more than I expected, mostly thanks to Shaye’s performance, but it is still just more of the usual Blumhouse, overly tame, assembly line horror. Visit my site for a full review!

A Past More Frightening Than "The Further"
Verified purchase
Insidious The Last Key takes us to the childhood of Elise, really painting a portrait of where her inner fortitude and mental power stem from. This film shows us the intense trials she faced as a little girl whose spiritual abilities frightened others. Elise didn't live a normal mundane childhood and become psychic, she was always this way--it helps viewers appreciate why her confidence runs deep, and why she is willing to help others at risk to herself.

Different from the other Insidious films, The Last Key is just as dark, frightening to watch alone at night, and visually mesmerizing. There is a great deal of truth in this movie which fans will connect with--the pain of being different, isolated, surviving a traumatic past, and the ability to find strength in one's own truths, weaknesses, and growing skills. It is Elise's story about not just facing the terrors in "The Further," but facing her past.

Insidious The Last Key, like the other films, has overlapping storylines which connect it with the previous films, creating a greater dramatic experience, and realism--much like our own lives being a domino effect of actions and reactions on various planes of existence. All things are interconnected, and what happens in "The Further" affects the everyday world in which Elise, Tucker, and Specs exist.

I am a fan of Insidious The Last Key. I hear an Insidious 5 film is in the works, and I hope there will be even more! If you're an Insidious fan or James Wan fan, this is a must see!

Lin Shay and Ava Kolker were masterful
Verified purchase
I’m a huge fan of Insidious, and while the originals of any series are always hard to beat, this one is right up there. I really liked the “inside jokes” written into the script, as I found the intermittent humor a good balance to the otherwise horror-themed storyline.
Lin Shaye put on another great performance for the viewers in my opinions. She has a knack for this genre for sure.
And speaking of performances, I must give the little lady who played young Elise due credit. Ava Kolker was epecially stunning. At 9 years of age when this was filmed, she grabbed the audience by the shirt collar with her haunting cries and convincing reaction to getting beat with a belt. (A scene that I still gives me goosebumps because she’s so believable).
All in all this recent addition to the Insidious lineup did not disappoint!

You finally get to know Elise.
Verified purchase
While this movie did have quite a few jump scares, it did little in the way of imagination that the other previous movies have not already done. I have always loved how there has always been very little gore in these movies and things have been left to the imagination of the viewer. Something that has greatly set apart a lot of the James Wan movies. The ability scare someone out of their wits with an idea of what may come is still a very frightening thing. The movie is very good. However, is predictable. We know that the heroine will live and save the day, although it does a thorough job at explaining where Elise came from what forged her to be who she is for the original insidious. The one question that it left me with was why didn't her mother come sooner when the whistle was blown by the other ghosts? Still good though.

Best ghost story movie all around!
Verified purchase
I love, love these Insidious movies. This one did not disappoint. Was scary. was a good story. was good acting with some of the same actors as in the last ones. I can't think of anything to complain about. One thing, the ending does give you an idea what the next one might be about. So rare to have really good and good quality ghost story movies. Can't praise enough. Do watch the first two first though. You don't have to, it will be great anyway but more fun to know the characters and their stories.
