The upcoming Insidious: Chapter 5 continues to deliver news with new cast members joining the cast.
Like yet another sequel to Paranormal Activity and American Nightmarewas more than dispensable after Paranormal Activity 5: Ghost Dimension and American Nightmare 4: Origins (themselves perfectly useless), Blumhouse is going to eat another franchise to the bone.

But never mind the review given that the last movie of 2018, Insidious 4: The Last Key, still grossed over $167 million at the worldwide box office (the saga's highest score) with a budget of only $10 million excluding marketing. Either all the wrong reasons to continue the massacre.
