$188M Horror Movie Repeats Box Office Success On Netflix By Reaching #1 Just Days After Debut-TGN

Insidious: The Red Door has repeated its impressive $188 million box office success on Netflix, reaching No. 1 on the platform days after its debut.

Just days after debuting on Netflix, Insidious: The Red Door has repeated its box office success by climbing the ranks to No. 1 on the streaming platform. A direct sequel to Insidious: Chapter 2, the horror film follows the Lambert family many years after the supernatural occurrences they experienced in the first two films. The movie became the best-performing of the franchise in theaters, earning $189 million against a $16 million budget.



Now, FlixPatrol reports Insidious: The Red Door‘s success has been repeated on streaming, with the movie becoming No. 1 on Netflix in the United States after debuting on November 4, 2023. This means the film is being watched more by subscribers than any other film on the platform, including box office behemoth Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. The horror film’s continued achievements highlights a major return for the franchise.

What Insidious 5’s Success Means For The Franchise

Insidious: The Red Door‘s ending underscores how the film was conceived as an ending to the horror franchise. Despite the many mysterious and terrifying events happening throughout the film, the Lambert family’s story ends on a note of finality. While this doesn’t mean the franchise won’t return in the future, it appears that – for now – the core family’s story is at an end.

However, Insidious: The Red Door‘s post-credits scene allows the franchise to continue with new stories in its universe. Given just how successful the movie was financially, it seems reasonable the story could continue with even more astral projections and demonic entities to come. Since the film is now a major hit on Netflix, there’s no telling what could come next despite the intention of ending the franchise.

For now, it seems the only movie happening after Insidious: The Red Door is a spinoff titled Thread: An Insidious Tale. Not much is known about the film, but it could be used as a launchpad for a more expansive version of the universe that shifts focus to new characters. It remains to be seen if the fifth main installment will give way to even more movies directly connected to the Lambert family’s seemingly finished journey.

The next movie, Thread: An Insidious Tale, will be the directorial debut of film writer Jeremy Slater (Death Note, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire).
