“Insidious: The Red Door” is available for Premium VOD rental right now. That means you can pay a premium price of $19.99 at your preferred digital retailer (Apple, Vudu, Amazon Prime, Roku, etc.) to watch the movie in a limited window from the comfort of your home. Plus, for an extra $5, you can buy the digital version of “The Red Door” for $24.99, meaning the movie will be part of your digital library (though you should remember that you don’t technically own these movies, and physical media is king).
As for when the movie will be streaming for a non-premium price, that release date hasn’t been revealed yet. Since Sony Pictures doesn’t have its own streaming service, Sony movies are licensed out to other streamers. We do know where “Insidious: The Red Door” will eventually end up streaming: Netflix. The studio struck a multi-year deal to make Netflix the first stop for streaming after its theatrical and home entertainment windows, typically 18 months later. That means we’re not likely to see “Insidious: The Red Door” streaming on Netflix this Halloween season.
However, the good news is that “Insidious: The Red Door” will be arriving on Blu-ray and DVD starting on September 12. That means, on top of being able to buy the movie on physical media, you’ll also be able to rent it for a much cheaper price starting next month, priming it for spooky season viewing in October. We don’t yet have any details on the special features that will be included, but since this was Patrick Wilson’s directorial debut, we’re hoping there are some good behind-the-scenes details on his experience as a filmmaker.
