We've heard some rumblings over the last few years of a possible 'Saw 8,' but after the definitive events at the end of 'Saw 7,' it seemed like the franchise definitely needed to take a breather. Now, for the first time, the producers have spoken out about their plans for a new sequel as we approach the original film's 10th anniversary. And it looks like 'Saw' director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell might just be ready to return to the series they started.

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.

'The Conjuring' Review

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.
