Will There Be A Sequel To INSIDIOUS?

Considering INSIDIOUS is the year’s most profitable film (grossed nearly 70mil worldwide off a 1.5mil budget), I’m honestly shocked that nobody has inquired about a sequel before now. After all, that is the way of Hollywood: Milk a horror hit until it is good and dry. FRIDAY THE 13th did it, HALLOWEEN did it, SAW did it and now is the time for INSIDIOUS to rake in some of that mad sequel money money, right?

Wrong. Shock Till You Drop caught up with producer Jason Blum earlier this week and hit him up about INSIDIOUS 2 and here’s what he had to say:

"I wouldn't say we're not considering it. There's no plan, no release date, nothing like that. I think James feels the same as Oren [Peli]. Oren was very skeptical about doing a sequel to Paranormal Activity until Michael [Perry] pitched an idea and it made sense. If Leigh comes up with a story that's inventive and you feel like there's a story to tell - as opposed to 'let's make another movie and make money' - and he comes up with something James feels is worth making we would do it. And if Leigh doesn't, we won't."

Hope Blum sticks with that attitude and doesn’t give in to the almighty dollar. INSIDIOUS was an amazing scare pic and while it did it end with a slight sequel note, I don’t know that it necessarily needs a sequel. The film stands solid on its own and serves as a reminder that the “scares doesn’t mean gore” approach still works. Be nice if, for once, the studio didn’t tarnish another horror classic by milking it to death.

  1. I would so love the idea of an Insidious 2. With the ending of the first one, there’s too much to wonder.

  2. There has to be another movie of Insidious. The ending of t just didn’t make sense to me. How did Josh kill the woman who helped him when he was eight. Come on Insidious fans let’s get them to make another Insidious movie!!!!

  3. i loved this movie!!! way better than the paranormal movies. not saying they werent good, they were. but insidious was way scarier!! there has to be a second movie, not a prequel. after whats going on with josh, that cant be the last we see of it!!

  4. I agree, there should be a second starting where the 1st left off. Not a second with a new family. I want to know what happens with josh, and if dalton is really dalton. It doesnt show us dalton getting back to his body, just him trying to but the demon was chasing him. So who knows, maybe the demon took over daltons body like the parasite took over joshs. This is the best movie I have ever seen. I loved it.

  5. It would be so cool if they made a second one after what happens to josh I have to know what happens next.

  6. PLEASE! Make an Insidious 2! I mean c’mon the end where Josh gets posessed and you don’t know what happens to his wife. I thought it was the scariest movie ever, I liked the Paranormal Activitie movies but hands down Insidious is the best. I’m sure not just me but A LOT of people would be very disappointed if there wasn’t a sequel.

  7. PLEASE, make a sequel to Insidious. I mean c’mon at the end Josh got posessed by that lady that haunted him when he was younger. What happens to him? What happens to his wife? What about his son? I’m sure not just me, but a lot of people would be dispointed if there wasn’t another Insidious movie. I liked the Paranormal Activity movies but hands down Insidious was the best and the scariest. You can hardly find movies that will scare the crap out of you anymore. That’s why I liked Insidious because it’s actually SCARY!

  8. Just watched insidious it’s fucking brilliant best bring out a number 2 like that was awesome the end of it was a cliff hanger like what happens to the family next…

  9. Ok the movie was really great…but a sequel i mean c-mon what do you people expect for them to do…let’s see make a sequel about some priest doing an exorcism on josh, or 1 about josh fighting spirits to get back into his body but seriously there’s not much start off with here.Ok we know josh got possessed and we’re not sure if dalton was himself either but c-mon that’s not a we gotta make a sequel to this movie ending…So trust me on this guys i know the movie left you wandering what happened but just leave it at that an move on haha…I’m just sayin it’s a great movie just not a sequel type of movie…unless they’ve got some movie making mastermind there lol…but that’s my feed back on the whole thing if you still think different then heyy that’s life…and also please flw me on twiter @SettleDownScott

  10. there has to be a 2nd movie it was a shit ending which didnt explain anything pllzzzz make another one !!!!!!

  11. i LOVED insidious sooo much and i watched it like 4 times i hope there is a insidious 2 sooo baddddddd111111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. same here i loved it and i hope there is a second one . I really want to know if that was delton , i mean i saw him go back to his body but you never know, i mean i didnt know the witch was in josh untill the end. but still elis isnt alive anymore.

  13. It would honestly be pretty cool for an insidious 2…but it really doesn’t have much to go on, besides showing us what happened at the end, and if Dalton actually got to his body in time… I think good horror movies are ones that leave the end to interpretation… The ending makes perfect sense, but there are alot of theories that aren’t 100% accurate. I dont believe its a movie for a sequel, unless like some other guy said, a mastermind comes up with a brilliant idea. It will NOT work with another family, because they had a very unique situation lol

  14. OMG! I have watched Insidious at least 5 times and it still scares me a little! I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There has to be a second one, cuz i agree that there is way too much to wonder, and if they do make another it has to have the same family:) I hope this is going to be the next poltergiest!!!!!!

  15. There should def. be a sequal to Insidious. That was the first scary movie I let my daughter watch and she loved it. On another note. I have so many ideas on how to make the Paranormal Activity movies like 100% better! If someone would listen, I know it would make millions!
