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,

How Charles Manson Got Under America’s Skin—For Nearly 50 Years

To understand why Charles Manson has remained such a riveting figure in American popular culture for five decades, it helps to go back to mid-April 1969, when Manson, then 34, called his three dozen or so followers together on the isolated Spahn Ranch outside Los Angeles.

It was several months before the notoriously gruesome murders of actress Sharon Tate and her friends, followed by the wealthy couple Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. But it was well after Manson had informed his ragtag flock of an imminent “Helter Skelter” race war—prophesized, he claimed, by the Bible and the Beatles—and began training them for combat. A few days earlier, officers from the county sheriff’s office had raided Spahn, confiscating stolen dune buggies and arresting some “Manson Family” cult members, though they were soon released on technicalities. Manson himself was away from the ranch and had avoided being taken into custody. But having spent much

Missing Toddler Found Dead Under Couch in Home in ‘Deplorable’ Condition

After searching for two days for a missing 16-month-old in Illinois, authorities found the toddler’s dead body underneath a couch inside her home, PEOPLE confirms.

The child’s death is considered suspicious and authorities had been investigating the girl’s mother for alleged neglect, the Will County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

The agency had visited the family’s Joliet Township home just hours before the toddler was reported missing, but found no immediate threat to the child’s safety, a Department of Children and Family Services spokesperson said in an email to the Chicago Tribune.

The home was in a “very deplorable” condition and often inhabited by squatters, Rick Ackerson, deputy chief of the sheriff’s office, said at a news conference Thursday.
