However, last month it was officially announced that there has been a post-production title change with the film now being released as Insidious: The Red Door.

The Lambert family is back—Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, and Andrew Astor are all back as Josh, Renai, Dalton, and Foster Lambert. The first trailer has also confirmed that Elise Rainier will be back as Lin Shaye, despite her death in the first film.

Three newcomers will be joining the cast including Hiam Abbass, Sinclair Daniel, and Peter Dager.

Details of the plot

The story follows Dalton Lambert as he heads off to college. While he’s away, sinister events arise that force the Lambert family to venture back into “the further.” Putting their demons to rest once and for all, Dalton and Josh must go deeper into “the further” than ever before, facing their family’s dark past and a host of new terrors luring behind the red door.
