Insidious and Sinister crossover under consideration at Blumhouse

The most generic titles in the history of horror cinema are on a collision course.

Blumhouse Productions, which holds the keys to both the Insidious and Sinister franchises, is apparently eyeing a crossover for the two series, according to Jason Blum, the producer who helped turn both movies into franchises to begin with.

Blum shared the news in an interview with Cinema Pop, revealing that the company had attempted to bring the two franchises together previously, but didn’t manage to pull the project off on their first try. 

Blum brought up the plan in response to a general query about Insidious‘ crossover potential, answering the question of whether the company would ever consider colliding some of their worlds together.

“I want to. We almost did Insidious and Sinister, and I still feel like we might do that,” Blum said. “So I think so. I think we’re going to cross our worlds at some point. I don’t know how yet,

For Consideration: This Year’s Two Award-Worthy Tributes to Potty Humor

Why aren’t these smart celebrations of infantile comedy on more award contention lists?

Two pieces of entertainment caught me by surprise this year. One is the animated feature Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the other the Netflix true-crime series spoof American Vandal. What they have in common, besides me initially dreading yet ultimately enjoying them, is their dealing with infantile sense of humor.

Comedy is a subjective matter, as we’re seeing with the Golden Globes consideration of Get Out for their comedy awards categories. It’s also something that’s not often appreciated when dissected. When you break down the elements of a joke or gag, the humor is easily lost. That’s not the case for either Captain Underpants or American Vandal because they’re not genre deconstructions.
