Last night I hit up the red carpet at the Eyegore Awards before heading into the event itself. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the Eyegores are the ceremony that rings in Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights. Right after talking to Bruce Campbell and Fede Alvarez I was able to snag Lin Shaye, who plays Elise in the Insidious franchise.
Since we had recently spoken about both Insidious Chapter 2 and the film’s maze at the event, I was able to dive right into Insidious Chapter 3. If you’ve seen the second film, you know that she’ll figure into the new installments in a very unique way.
As for HHN, the active dates are September 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, October 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 31 and November 1, 2. Get tickets here.
So now we get to talk about Insidious 3!
I’m so excited about it. Boy that was quick, wasn’t it? Like the next minute they announced it! I feel, and we all hope, that Elise has a lot of stories to tell inside of her. Leigh Whannell is going to be writing the third installment…
And maybe directing?
We don’t know, but if he did it would be awesome because nobody knows more about it than he does on that level. But I’m sure whoever they decide on [will be great]. And James Wan will have input in terms of his sensibility about the stories. I love all these people, all of them. James is a master and he’s just beginning to open up in that sense.
So will Elise be in The Further then? Will that world be expanded even more?
I have no idea. I saw Leigh the other night actually and he’s still throwing ideas around in his mind too. And if I have any thoughts, I’ll throw in my 2 cents when I have the opportunity. I know Leigh has a great story lurking inside of that big mind of his.
