Insidious Synopsis
The creators of Saw and Paranormal Activity team up to reinvent the haunted-house genre for a new generation with Insidious, paying tribute to such horror classics as Carnival of Souls, The Exorcist and Poultergeist, Renais (Rose Byrne) and her husband Josh (Patrick Wilson) are still unpacking boxes in their familyís new home when she first senses a sinister presence. Eerie events steadily escalate into supernatural attacks, until one day their oldest son slips into a mysterious coma. Renais and Josh abandon their ghost-ridden home and attempt to heal their broken family, turning to an unorthodox expert in supernatural occurrences (Lin Shaye). They soon discover: It's not the house that's haunted.

Insidious comes from the writer-director team of Leigh Whannell and James Wan (SAW) and is produced by Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity). The film stars two-time Tony nominee Patrick Wilson (The Watchmen, Little Children), two-time Tony nominee Rose Byrne (28 Weeks Later, Damages, Golden Globe winner Barbara Hershey (Black Swan), Lin Shaye and Ty Simpkins.

Insidious: Chapter 3 Finds Its Director Close To Haunted Home Insidious: Chapter 3 Finds Its Director Close To Haunted Home
James Wan directed both Insidious and its sequel Insidious: Chapter 2. But when Fast & The Furious 7 came calling, Wan bailed on the horror franchise, and Blumhouse Productions was tasked with finding a new helmer for their promised Insidious: Chapter 3. But their search was short, and didn't even extend beyond the cast of the haunted house film series.

The entire regular cast, from Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne to the great Lin Shaye, are reprising their roles from the original film, which was a huge, huge hit in 2011. This could be the back of young Ty Simpkinsí head. It was his character, Dalton Lambert, who became possessed by a witch, forcing his dad (Wilson) to confront his own dark past.

A Sequel To James Wan's Horror Film Insidious Is Being Conjured A Sequel To James Wan's Horror Film Insidious Is Being Conjured
A sequel was bound to happen because it was one of the most successful horror films of last year. On top of the bags of money that the flick brought in, it was also a pretty solid film with some genuine scares. It helps when the cast has talented players like Wilson and Rose Byrne, who at the moment have not announced their return.I would imagine, since Wilson was willing to sign up for The Conjuring - or whatever they end up calling it - that he's likely, if needed, to be on board.

Patrick Wilson And Vera Farmiga Circling James Wan's Conjuring Patrick Wilson And Vera Farmiga Circling James Wan's Conjuring
In a surprise move, perennial horror director James Wan is making another scary movie. After getting his start with the first Saw film, Wan made a few other middling entries in the genre before returning to success with Insidious. Looking to keep at least part of that winning formula together, the filmís star Patrick Wilson, as well as the great Vera Farmiga, may join his newest film called Conjuring, which is apparently based on a true story.

Weekend Box Office - Holiday Bunnies Weekend Box Office - Holiday Bunnies "Hop" To The Top
This weekend Hop, and its relatively small $63 million budget, proved that you don't have to spend a ton of money to make a computer animated movie. Of course, it also proved the point that you get what you pay for. The cutesy yet rated-PG attempt at capitolizing on an Easter-ish franchise got a mediocre reception, both from critics and audiences.

First Insidious Poster Introduces Zombie Justin Bieber First Insidious Poster Introduces Zombie Justin Bieber
Though I've read quite a bit about James Wan's Insidious, apparently I've misunderstood the film entirely. I was under the impression that it was about parents trying to prevent evil spirits from getting to their comatose son. Instead, if I understand the poster correctly, this is the zombie version of the Justin Bieber movie.

Insidious Is In This New Horror Trailer Insidious Is In This New Horror Trailer
I canít decide how I feel about Insidious yet. It stars some under-the-radar actors that I thoroughly enjoy like Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, it seems like itíll be a scary thrill ride, but something doesnít feel right. Maybe itís the ďitís not the house thatís haunted...itís your sonĒ line that reminds me so much of Paranormal Activityís hook.
