Briefly: In the wake of the debut of Saw, creator James Wan has worked on additional films (Dead Silence and Death Sentence) but neither has become anything like the phenomenon that was spawned by Saw. But his new film, Insidious, reunites him with Saw co-creator Leigh Whannell, and did quite well in the Midnight Madness program at Tiff last September. The film was picked up [1] by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group (not quite the same thing as being picked up by Sony Pictures) and will now be released on April 1 2011 by the relatively new company FilmDistrict. April 1 is getting to be a crowded date. Also in that slot are Source Code, Mother's Day, Super and Hop. But if this film has any of the luck of Saw, it will pull a dedicated horror audience to counter some of the other draws represented by Source Code and the limited release Super. »
