Insidious: Chapter 2 director James Wan and his go-to horror writing cohort Leigh Whannell are at the center of a new featurette from FilmDistrict about their upcoming horror flick. The sequel to Insidious (which topped our Top 10 Horror Films of 2011) lands in theaters -- appropriately enough -- on Friday the Thirteenth of September.
The duo talk about reuniting with original cast Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey and Ty Simpkins and how they sought to raise the bar on the audience the second time around. The above clip even shows how they did it with grainy night-vision shots of audiences jumping out of their seat watching the sequel.
By simply seeing the first Insidious: Chapter 2 trailer, one could see these two were well on their way to capturing lightning twice. Heck, these guys gave us the summer surprise hit The Conjuring, and given their track record, they could write their own Hollywood horror ticket.
Well, except for that little detour the helmer is taking as James Wan is set to direct Fast and Furious 7!
