I loved last year's horror film Insidious! I thought it was one of the best horror films I've seen in a long time. It both entertained the hell out of me and kind of scared me. I just loved the story. It's no surprise that this sequel is happening. Not only was it a great movie, but it was also a box office success, pulling in more than $100 million world wide, which is a great profit for a movie budgeted around $1.5 million.
Jason Blum is back on board as the producer of the sequel, and he's currently in talks with the original team, director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell, to return and develop the new horror film. I'll be a bit more excited about this movie if this original creative team officially jumps back on board. As much as I enjoyed the first movie, I don't think it really needs a sequel. But since they are moving forward with it anyway, let's hope it turns out as good as or better than the first.
Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne starred in the first installment as parents who think their house is haunted, but come to realize that one of their sons' spirit has left his body and a horde of spirits is trying to posses it. If you haven't seen the first movie you, you need to watch it now! It's currently available on Instant Netflix. There's no word on if any members of the orignal cast will return.
What are your thoughts on Insidious getting a sequel?
