The 'Saw' franchise has been dead for a while now, but good news for fans of Jigsaw and his creepy little puppet: the original 'Saw' that started it all is heading back to theaters this October to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Remember that creepy doll that gave you nightmares in 'The Conjuring'? The one Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga told their daughter NOT to touch? Well, Warner Bros. gave the possessed item its own spinoff movie, and the first 'Annabelle' trailer has debuted to bring on the scares.
James Wan's 'Insidious: Chapter 2' opened at $41 million over the weekend -- for a film that only cost around $5 million to make, that's a massive success. Combine that with his $40 million opening for this summer's 'The Conjuring' (making it one of the most successful horror films of all time), and James Wan has become the horror master. FilmDistrict agrees, and the studio is already moving ahead with 'Insidious 3.'
Director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell return to the spooky fun house with 'Insidious Chapter 2,' marking Wan's second horror film release in as many months after this summer's surprise hit 'The Conjuring.' Unfortunately, the sequel gives diminishing returns as the scares are dialed down and the laughs (intentional and unintentional) are cranked way up.
We're still a couple of months away from the release of James Wan's 'Insidious Chapter 2' -- the first official trailer showed us that we're in for another spooky treat, and this first clip confirms that Wan is definitely up to his old scary tricks, with your favorite ghost hunters returning for another round with some sinister forces.
It's no secret that James Wan's 'The Conjuring' has been testing through the roof and is poised to terrify audiences when it opens on Friday. Therefore, it's no surprise that 'The Conjuring 2' is already being developed. Considering the story's inspiration for the first, this sequel might just be the start of a new major horror franchise.
Some film directors were sent to us, by divine right, to perform certain tasks. Much like Martin Scorsese had a calling to stitch together long, swooping takes of criminal behavior set to the tunes of the Rolling Stones, director James Wan also has a providential purpose. It's a very specific way of giving you a heart attack.
It's not just the “jump scare.” That's far too simple. As Wan showed in 'Insidious' - and does so even more so in his new film, 'The Conjuring' - he is the unrivaled champion of a specific sort of hold-your-breath scene, where you know the jump is just about to happen. But he holds it. And holds it. And holds it just a little bit more. And just when you think it's a goof or a head-fake, BLAM!, the thing you knew was going to pop out at you, pops out you - and there's a good chance you just shouted and made a fool of yourself.
