Lin Shaye and Leigh Whannell Talk About “Insidious: Chapter 2”

Uploaded on Tuesday 10 September 2013


I sat down with Lin Shaye (Elise) and Leigh Whannell (scriptwriter and actor who plays Specs) for the sequel “Insidious: Chapter 2.” The film follows immediately what happened after the first movie. Who killed Elise? Director James Wan, who I’m calling as the contemporary master of suspense, returns with Patrick Wilson (Josh Lambert) and Rose Byrne (Renai Lambert) to the world of “Insidious” for this creepy sequel. Fresh from “The Conjuring,” Wan is back to spook us all.

In this fun interview, we talked about:

*** How the film successfully expounded on the mythology explored on the first film
*** The supernatural domestic drama of the movie
*** It’s a domestic drama masquerading as a thriller
*** Elise as the nurturer – how was it returning back to the role
*** Leigh’s advice to viewers
