Hard-core fans get the loud noises they came for, but true fear vaporizes.

A workmanlike but fan-pleasing picture.

The Last Key is wildly uneven, confused and confusing, and it appears to leave the “Insidious” saga written into a corner yet again.

The Last Key is a mixed bag... at its worst when it indulges in the reliable franchise tropes and at its best when it strains at the boundaries of what you expect from an Insidious film.

The fourth installment of Leigh Whannell's ghost-and-mediums horror series wraps up its own free-association illogic with an impenetrable tangle of woo-woo spirit-world mechanics and lingo.

"Insidious: The Last Gasp" might have been a more appropriate title for the fourth and potentially final entry in this lucrative, once-diverting property.

Four films into the series, the layout of the spirit realm has become too familiar, a soundstage of fog machines and grotesquerie that Robitel and Whannell haven't populated with any fresh shocks.
