You get a whiff of the film that might have been, one closer in spirit to domestic tragedy. But there are creepy monsters with keys for fingers to bring into the plot. Hard-core fans get the loud noises they came for, but true fear vaporizes.
Director Adam Robitel and editor Timothy Alverson have fun with the mechanics of the PG-13 jump-scare; in one show-stopping scene in particular, they make you wait for it, and wait for it, and it s all the more satisfying when it finally comes.
"The Last Key" is wildly uneven, confused and confusing, and it appears to leave the "Insidious" saga written into a corner yet again.
As has been the case since the first film, this one centers on shock cuts and sudden appearances of figures in the shadows. While the franchise s technical overkill may have mellowed over time, the delivery of the boos remains cheap and arbitrary.
Yet "The Last Key" can t shake the ghosts of inevitability, and as Wan continues to flesh out his other horror universe, "The Conjuring," it s no surprise that his less substantial series is winding down.
