As Insidious 4 heads into UK cinemas, we've been chatting to the writer behind the series...
For such a friendly guy, Leigh Whannell sure knows how to scare the living daylights out of you.
Whannell rose to prominence writing the twisted slaughterama Saw (which he also co-starred in) and, more recently, the spooktacular Insidious series (which, again, he also acts in). In between, Whanell also found the time to write Donnie Wahlberg starring puppet shocker Dead Silence and zombrat splatstick comedy Cooties (which he again acted in, this time stealing the entire movie with his performance as worrying weirdo Doug).
Having directed the third Insidious, Whannell is back to simply writing, producing and acting in the fourth film, Insidious: The Last Key (what a layabout!). Den Of Geek jumped at the chance to have a chat with him about the film back in November. Here’s how we got on.
