It’s the old switcharoo for two high profile horror flicks as Insidous: Chapter 4 vacates its original pre-Halloween date of October 20 to January 5, 2018, and Blumhouse’s other horror offering Half to Death, moves in, reports Deadline.
The fourth chapter in the franchise, which will now have a weekend to itself, will be directed by series newcomer Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) and welcomes back Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the parapsychologist who faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.
The film is written by Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell (Saw), who wrote the trilogy and directed Chapter 3, and produced by Insidious regulars Jason Blum (The Purge series, Get Out), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and co-creator James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7).
Meanwhile, Half to Death is a Blumhouse original about a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) who relives the day of her murder in both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
The film is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).
