Who's in Insidious 2?

In a move that will likely come as no surprise to anyone, Insidious scribe Leigh Whannell let drop to the folks at Dread Central that at least two characters from the 2011 horror hit will back for the eventual follow up.

Whannell said paranormal specialists Specs and Tucker, played by Whannell and Angus Sampson, return in the sequel. Whannell explains it best himself below:

"I can say that yes, my character will be seen in Insidious 2," said Whannell to Dread. "It may probably bum a lot of people out, though, to hear this news. It's part of the reason I don't even read the internet message boards anymore; there was this hatred that spewed out from fans saying 'I hated those guys! They sucked! They ruined the movie!' so there will probably be a lot of people out there who will be disappointed to hear that the Specs and Tucker characters will be coming back. (laughs)"

Some didn't like the humour the characters brought to an otherwise freaky 90-minute ride. I didn't mind it at all, and really dug that ghost-seeing Viewmaster. What's more important to me is that Whannell and director James Wan develop a really solid and scary story.

Here's the trailer for Insidious to remind you of the greatness.

  1. Not really sure where you can go with Insidious II- unless, they go in trying to find the main character from the first one.

    But to be perfectly honest, I'm sure that Insidious NEEDS to be turned into a franchise. Some horror movies are best as just ONE movie.
