How’s this for a match made in…hell?! The creators of the SAW and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchises have teamed up for INSIDIOUS, a superscary haunted house chiller guaranteed to have you jumping out of your seat. Over the next week or so, Fangoria.com will be presenting exclusive video chats (directed and edited by Bill Hall) with Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Today Fango’s Tony Timpone continues his talk with actor/screenwriter Whannell (see part one here) about the making of INSIDIOUS and provides scoops on his future projects.
Opening April 1 from FilmDistrict, INSIDIOUS pays tribute to such horror classics as CARNIVAL OF SOULS, THE EXORCIST and POLTERGEIST. Renais (28 WEEKS LATER’s Rose Byrne) and her husband Josh (HARD CANDY’s Patrick Wilson) are still unpacking boxes in their new home when she first senses a sinister presence. Eerie events steadily escalate into supernatural attacks, until one day oldest son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) slips into a baffling coma. Renais and Josh abandon their ghost-ridden abode and attempt to heal their broken family, turning to an unorthodox expert in paranormal occurrences (2001 MANIACS’ Lin Shaye). Chillingly, they soon discover—it’s not the house that’s haunted… Barbara Hershey (BLACK SWAN, THE ENTITY, RIDING THE BULLET) costars in the film, which was produced by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’s Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider. Read our INSIDIOUS cover story in Fango #302 (on sale now) and stop back Friday for director Wan’s INSIDIOUS insights. Plus see Fango’s advance review here.
