The B-Movies Podcast: ‘Insidious’ Retrospective With Leigh Whannell
They’ve haunted your nightmares. They’ve made over $258 million at the box office. And now, they’re right here on The B-Movies Podcast! This week, your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold welcome back writer/director Leigh Whannell, who is here to take us back in time and tell stories from all throughout Insidious: Chapters 1-3!
That’s right, he wrote the first two films, and co-starred as the ghost hunter Specs, and he’s finally taking a crack at directing with Insidious: Chapter 3, in theaters this weekend. We got Leigh Whannell in the CraveOnline studio to talk about the origins of the series, how it evolved away from his original intentions, and totally geek out about b-movies like Krull and Welcome to Woop Woop. It’s the kind of in-depth interview you can only get on The B-Movies Podcast!
