April 3, 2015 is the currently locked release date for the third installment of the hit horror franchise Insidious which will be written by Leigh Whannell (writer/star of the first two films). We have still yet to hear if James Wan will return to direct the film, but we will keep our fingers crossed. If Wan doesn’t come to direct, who would you want to direct? Any specific horror masters in mind?
After almost a decade since the first Saw film, which was written and directed by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring, Dead Silence), the eighth installment of the hit horror franchise is currently in active development.
There has been mixed criticism with the past seven Saw movies. The ratings for each film did not increase or decrease in a specific order, but they did vary. Some of the Saw movies were terrific, while others were pretty bad. I wonder what they can do with this new installment that will shock audiences and get them off guard, having them begging for another one. I am sure of one thing that would make this reboot fantastic… If the dynamic horror duo James Wan and Leigh Whannel returned to write and direct it. Now that would be great.
What are your thoughts on this new installment?
Brilliance was defined in a simple one hour and forty-five minutes with James Wan’s highly anticipated horror sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2. This film pretty much gave Leigh Whannel and James Wan a VIP pass into the Masters of Horror lounge.
If you thought The Conjuring was great, oh, how you’ll love this little slice of fright– or should I say, BIG slice of fright! This had each one of my friends jumping and screaming in their seats (maybe a few Icees spilled). There were hardly any jump scares… just the clever brilliance of James Wan.
Insidious: Chapter 2 began right where we left off in Insidious. From there, I can’t say anything else. But, I will say that this film does explain the unexplained. It answers the unanswered. The way Leigh Whannel and James Wan unfolds the story it is just pure genius. The story is amazingly written, the scares are on point, the direction of the film was obviously great as well. Chapter 2 was just overall a fantastic horrifying ride.
…I will say — from what I saw — it looks like there could be an Insidious: Chapter 3… but, that’s just me. You watch it and tell me what you think. #DontGoAlone
