It is the first installment in the Insidiousfranchise, and the third in terms of the series’ in-story chronology.

The film was released in theaters on April 1, 2011, and was FilmDistrict’s first theatrical release. The film is followed by a sequel, Chapter 2 (2013) and two prequels, Chapter 3 (2015) and The Last Key (2018). There is also a fifth installment set to be released in 2021.
Married couple Josh and Renai Lambert, and their children Dalton, Foster, and infant Cali, have recently moved into a new home. One night, Dalton is drawn to the attic when he hears creaking noises and sees the door open by itself. He falls from a ladder while investigating and sees a figure in the shadows. The next day, he falls into an inexplicable coma.
After three months of treatment without result, Renai and Josh are allowed to take Dalton home. Soon after, paranormal activity begins to occur; Renai begins hearing voices over the baby monitor when no one is in Cali’s room, Foster says that Dalton sleepwalks at night, Renai sees a frightening figure of a man in Cali’s room, and the home’s security alarm is repeatedly triggered for no reason. After Renai finds a bloody hand print on Dalton’s bed, she questions Josh about the house, but he ignores her. That night, Renai is attacked by the figure from Cali’s room, and the Lamberts decide to abandon the house and move elsewhere.
In the new house, Renai sees the ghost of a dancing boy who leads her to Dalton’s room. Josh’s mother, Lorraine, arrives and says she had a dream about a dark figure in Dalton’s room. Suddenly, she sees the same dark figure- a monstrous red-faced demon- standing behind Josh and screams, while Dalton’s room is ransacked by unseen forces and Dalton is found lying on the floor.
Lorraine calls demonologists Elise Reiner, Specs and Tucker. Elise senses a presence in the house and upon entering Dalton’s room sees the same demonic, red-faced figure Lorraine saw.
Elise explains that Dalton is not in a coma; he was born with the ability to travel mentally to the astral plane, and had been doing so in his sleep, believing his abilities to merely be dreams. He has traveled too far and became lost in a purgatory realm called “The Further”, a place inhabited by the tortured souls of the dead. Without his mental presence, Dalton’s body appears comatose and spirits can use it to enter the physical world. Josh is skeptical until he realizes that drawings in Dalton’s bedroom hinted at his astral projection abilities and the red-faced demon.
