In 2004 two young Australian filmmakers wowed audiences everywhere with their indie hit Saw. Though their low-budget film was an unexpected and huge box office success (which spawned many sequels), director and writer duo James Wan and Leigh Whannell had no idea the triumph of Saw would lead them down the path of being labeled as “the godfathers of torture porn.”
Everyone at the Toronto International Film Festival has been buzzing about James Wan's Insidious (look for a review soon), and distro has swooped in faster than a pissed off Grim Reaper in Peter Jackson's The Frighteners!
The Toronto International Film Festival is chugging along quite nicely, and we've got a clip from one of the biggest horror flicks playing at it - James Wan's Insidious.
Going to jail sucks. Yep, there's no arguing that fact. From top to bottom an inmate's life is a horror show from morning to night. But what if it could be worse? What if on top of everything else the prison that you've been sentenced to serve your time in was run by vampires?
Over the weekend we speculated that a new ghastly image that debuted on the website for the Toronto International Film Festival was for James Wan's latest fright flick Insidious in support of its Midnight Madness line-up. Today confirmation came along with the full image itself.
Toronto International Film Festival's Midnight Madness Teases Some Spooky! First Image from Insidious?
One of the most badass parts about the Toronto International Film Festival is its Midnight Madness programming line-up of ten genre-themed films spread out over ten maniacal nights, and things are already looking appropriately frightful. Oh, the joys of being a Canuck!
One of the most promising genre flicks on the horizon has got to be James Wan's Insidious. Not only are we glad to see Wan working on a new and original horror story, but the director sure has a fantastic leading man lined up in Patrick Wilson. Read on to find out what Wilson recently had to say about the upcoming haunted house horror film.
The first casting news has just come in for James Wan's Insidious, which is currently lensing under the title The Astral in Los Angeles, and things are looking good!
If Paranormal Activity taught the studios anything, it's that you can do so much more with so much less and in the process still deliver a quality flick! The team behind the phenomenon Paranormal Activity, director Oren Peli and producers Jason Blum and Steven Schneider, are out to do just that with their new deal with Canada's Alliance Films. First order of business?
It's been a while since James Wan got behind the camera for another dark tale of terror and mayhem. Thankfully the wait for his next film is just about over! Get ready for The Further! The film is set to be produced by Jason Blum (Blumhouse Productions), Oren Peli (director of Paranormal Activity) and Steven Schneider (Room 101 Productions).
Genre staple James Wan just landed a gig that will most assuredly have lots of fans screaming, whipping, and tossing holy water at birds and or overly acrobatic midgets!
Xbox owners have a lot to look forward to in mid-November. Gears of War will be out, a new Dashboard update brings us avatars, and a horror/comedy series will splatter all over LIVE!
This is why I love having an Xbox 360 and have yet to see the point in the PS3 aside from its use as a Blu-ray player. Variety got word this morning that this fall a series of short films under the banner “Horror Directors Do Comedy” will show up on the console free of charge. The cool thing?
We love James Wan around these parts. Not only has he made a few kickass horror films, but he’s also a great guy. EA Games seem to be on a mission to show us horror fans that despite having rarely entered our genre, this October’s Dead Space comes from a team of people that really know their stuff when it comes to horror.
