Insidious: The Red Door Scares Up the Franchises Highest Opening Weekend in 10 Years

For the first time in five years, the Insidious franchise is back on the big screen with Insidious: The Red Door, a brand new sequel to the first two movies that was directed by franchise star Patrick Wilson. The Lambert family’s saga comes to a conclusion in The Red Door, which just scared up a pretty impressive opening weekend domestically and worldwide.

Insidious: The Red Door topped the domestic box office charts this weekend, besting Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in that film’s second weekend. In 3,188 theaters across the United States, The Red Door opened up to $32,650,000 over the weekend, giving the franchise its highest opening weekend since the release of Insidious: Chapter 2 back in 2013.

Here are the domestic opening weekend numbers for each film in the franchise…

  • Insidious (2010) – $13.2 million
  • Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) – $40.2 million
  • Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) – $22.6 million
  • Insidious: The Last Key (2018) – $29.5 million
  • Insidious: The Red Door (2023) – $32.6 million

Worldwide, Insidious: The Red Door has scared up $64 million thus far. To date, the highest total worldwide number for the franchise is $167.8 million (Insidious: The Last Key).

It’s important to note that the production budget for The Red Door was just $16 million, allowing the fifth franchise installment to achieve profitability in just a matter of days.

The decision to pivot backwards and refocus on the Lambert family seems to have been a smart one, with audiences flocking to the theater to finally see a direct continuation of the first two Insidious movies. You can consider The Red Door a “legacy sequel” of sorts, and yes, we’re also feeling pretty old to realize that Insidious Nostalgia has already become a thing.

13 years since the franchise launched… where does the time go?! The more important question? What’s next for the Insidious franchise? A spinoff has already been announced. It’s titled Thread: An Insidious Tale, with Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani starring!

Deadline reports, “The story here is that of a husband and wife (Nanjiani and Moore) who enlist the help of a spell to travel back in time, such that they can prevent the death of their young daughter. The consequences, of course, prove to be severe.”

The franchise’s first spinoff film comes courtesy of Screen Gems, Blumhouse and James Wan’s Atomic Monster, and Jeremy Slater (“The Exorcist,” “Moon Knight”) is directing.

Slater also wrote the screenplay for Thread: An Insidious Tale.
