They story of the Lambert family concluded in Insidious Chapter 2, but the ending of that film teased a whole new world. What we saw there will expand in Insidious Chapter 3, written and directed by series co-creator Leigh Whannell. The new sequel is currently scheduled for release April 3, 2015.

That’s pretty close, so casting has begun leading into a July start date. Dermot Mulroney is the first addition as the star of the film. Read more below. Read More »

Insidious 3 director

The two Insidious films, released in 2011 and 2013, were written by Leigh Whannell and director James Wan, the same pair that created the Saw series. We’ve known for a while that a third Insidious film would arrive in 2015, and that Whannell is writing that, too.

But with Wan moving on to direct Fast and Furious 7, where does that leave the third Insidious film? With Leigh Whannell directing, as it turns out. The writer/actor has just been announced as the director of Insidious: Chapter 3. Read More »

Cooties cast

If the idea of a bunch of zombie kids disemboweling their teachers sounds like fun, Cooties is the movie for you. Elijah Wood stars as Clint, a substitute teacher who ends up at the wrong school on the wrong day. He’s joined by Allison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Jack McBrayer, Nasim Pedrad and Leigh Whannell, all of whom play teachers tasked with trying to stop a quickly spreading virus that turns kids into rabid flesh eaters.

Whannell, best known for the Saw and Insidious franchises, also co-wrote the film and it pops with hilarious one-liners and disgusting violence. The second act slows down the action considerably, however, and some of the plot holes are massive, but that doesn’t take away too much from the good provided by first time directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion.

Insidious Chapter 2 (2)

Briefly: Two franchises just dated their upcoming sequels. First up, The Farrelly BrothersDumb and Dumber To will be released November 14, 2014. It’s the sequel to the hit 1994 film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. The Farrellys once again write and direct.

Second, Filmdistrict just dated Insidious: Chapter 3 for release April 3, 2015. Yes, another sequel in 2015. While James Wan, who directed the first two films, won’t return, writer Leigh Whannell is again penning this installment. Whannell (above left) wrote the first two films and co-starred in them as well. There’s no word on a director, but the second film pretty obviously set up a story line. [ERC]

‘Insidious: Chapter 2′ – What Did You Think?

Insidious Chapter 2 Bed

When James Wan‘s Insidious hit theaters in 2011, there were no expectations. The $1.5 million movie ended up grossing almost $100 million worldwide and created a legion of fans. That happened because Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell (co-creators of the Saw series) conceived a relatable, terrifying world where a family, rather than a house, was haunted.

Just two years later, with the Friday the 13th release of Insidious: Chapter 2, Wan faces huge expectations. Not only does he have to follow up that first film, but he’s coming off the massive hit The Conjuring and is next making Fast and Furious 7. Tell us what you thought of the second chapter of Insidious, after the break. Read More »

James Wan Insidious 2

There really is no better title for the sequel to 2010′s Insidious than Insidious Chapter 2. Like a book filled with intense cliffhangers, the final moment of the first movie begged for more, and in this sequel we get that moment and so much more. This is the story of the Lambert family, including Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, and it picks up right at the end of the first film. But the sequel also delves into the past, helping to complete the puzzling and frightening story co-created by director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell. (The team that created not only Insidious, but Saw too.)

Back in July, before Wan got to work on Fast and Furious 7, I got to chat with the writer and director of Insidious Chapter 2. We discussed how the sequel goes deeper into this universe’s mythology, the choices made to get there, how footage from the first movie was incorporated, what they knew and didn’t know going into the sequel and much more.

Check it out below but beware. There are minor spoilers and the interview is best read after seeing the movie. Read More »
