Director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell are at it again. Their movie Insidious: Chapter 2 is the kind of movie audiences who love the horror genre impatiently wait years to see. You can't help but feel bad for the Lambert family since no one should suffer such intense agony of being haunted and no matter where you hide you can't escape. Produced once again by Oren Peli (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and with box office stats showing over $20 million in ticket sales so far this opening weekend, the general consensus is that James Wan is a master when it comes to making a very scary film that will terrify you and thrill you in the best ways possible.
I love a good horror film. In fact, in a given week I’ll usually watch a few in search of a really great fright. Here at SXSW I was able to catch a midnight screening of James Wan's newest film, Insidious. I don't know if it was because it was midnight, or because I had just left another less than stellar horror film, but this movie scared the shit out of me.
