Even though last Halloween saw upstart handi-cam movie Paranormal Activity (PA) thoroughly trounce established franchise movie Saw VI at the box office, that doesn't necessarily mean that the two horror camps are at each others' throats. In fact, Oren Peli, the writer and director of PA, teamed up with James Wan, the writer and director of the original Saw, on the new horror movie Insidious (formerly The Further and The Astral), which debuted last Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Compared to Poltergeist by more than one TIFF attendee, Insidious revolves around a family who moves into a new home, where an accident results in their young son falling into a coma. The boy's body becomes a beacon to evil entities from a nether realm called "The Further" who wish to use it to enter our world, while the boy's mind remains trapped in their realm. There's no trailer for the movie yet, but a frightening new clip from the movie has been released that offers a glimpse at what one of the evil entities looks like.
Insidious was co-produced by Peli, directed by Wan, and written by Leigh Whannell, who starred in the first Saw and has written and/or executive produced every Saw movie to date. Patrick Wilson, Barbara Hershey and Rose Byrne lead the cast. The movie does not have a release date yet.
