Are you ready to go even farther into the Further?

Master of the micro-budget horror Jason Blum of Blumhouse has set Insidious 4 for an October 20, 2017 release.

Below is the official release from the film:

It’ll creep into our realm on October 20, 2017, guided into theaters by The Taking of Deborah Logan helmer Adam Robitel. Leigh Whannell, a bona fide stalwart of the horror series and director of Chapter 3, will pen the screenplay while Jason Blum, Oren Peli and co-creator James Wan (Furious 7, Aquaman) are all on board to produce. On the other side of the lens, Lin Shaye is set to reprise her role as parapsychologist Elise Rainier.

Insidious 3 was the second highest-grossing horror movie of 2015, so in pragmatic terms, continuing the franchise was inevitable. 

Is that good for horror as a genre, though?

Here, Chris Eggertsen and Roth Cornet talk about the popular franchise and what they hope to see from the fourth film.
