**** Spoilers Warning – Anything Beyond This Will Spoil The Ending for The Red Door ***

In the finale of Insidious: The Red Door, Josh, and Dalton confront the formidable Lipstick-Face Demon. The Demon has Dalton captive in his theater room, but Josh frees him. Together, they make a daring escape through The Red Door. However, the Demon is on their heels and breaking through the door. Josh urges Dalton to flee while he stays behind to hold the Demon off, just like his father did four decades earlier. When all seems lost, Josh notices paint dripping down The Red Door. Dalton is painting over it! As the door is fully covered in black paint, the light above it goes out, indicating that the door has been closed for good… or has it?!

In the post-credits scene, the door’s light turns on, suggesting it’s not entirely shut and may reopen. This is where Thread: An Insidious Tale comes in. The movie follows a married couple, portrayed by Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani, who search for a magic spell to go back in time and prevent their daughter’s death. While the storyline may appear more imaginative than frightening, the couple will ultimately confront The Further and endure the outcomes of messing with mysterious powers beyond their command.
