Oren Peli

Insidious: Chapter 4 will be released in theaters on October 20, 2017 via Universal Pictures. The news is announced in the video above by Lin Shaye, who will reprise her role as parapsychologist Elise Rainier.

Perhaps the biggest piece of information revealed is that Adam Robitel is taking over directorial duties. Like many others, I was highly impressed by his debut, The Taking of Deborah Logan, so I’m interested to see what he brings to this franchise.

Insidious: Chapter 4 will once again by written by series co-creator Leigh Whannell. Jason Blum, Oren Peli, and co-creator James Wan will serve as producers.


Paranormal Activity was made for a mere $11,000 and shot entirely in the auteur’s suburban home. The film spawned a franchise that has pulled in approximately $577 million worldwide at the box office alone. According to Paramount, Paranormal Activity is probably the most profitable film ever.
