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.

Check out the quick interview below!

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.

    Lin and her character are incredibly likable, I look forward to her return in ‘Insidious 3′.

  • Taboo

    Nice to see they’re working on another one. I still haven’t seen chapter 2.

  • Evil_Flip

    I love Lin Shaye. I’ve always considered her our horror mom (and Frances Bay our horror grandma).

  • Dr. Detfink

    It’ll be interesting to see where they go with this franchise. Too hot not to greenlight a third chapter. That brings me to my next thought, Lin Shaye has to be the focus since, she links all three chapters.

  • MidnightMayhem

    I knew there would be a 3. James Wan is still going to be involved too. He’s not done with horror even he does want to expand into other genres. This series is too popular for him to give up on it. Whannell set it up perfectly so how could you not return to it?

    I just seen Chapter 2 a few days ago and just as I expected when I seen the trailer it wasn’t very good at all….The first film started off great and then got worse as it went on and this one picks up right there and slowly…and I mean slowly stays going downhill…no need for a Chapter 3 at all in my opinion.
