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,

THE REVIEW:

Scott Derrickson‘s Sinister blurs a number of fine lines. Obviously, there’s the line between merely seeing something horrible depicted and actually being impacted by it. Just like the saying “You are what you eat,” there may be something to the idea that, to some extent, we are what we see. If we were to watch realistic super 8 footage of some family being hung from a tree, it could potentially scar us. In a way, this movie addresses such an issue, while also being a supernatural story.
