2013 Guide Analysis: "After breaking through with "Saw," Aussie director James Wan tried his hand at another horror tale ("Dead Silence") and a drama ("Death Sentence"), neither of which took off. Taking things back to basics, he and his colleague Leigh Whannell crafted a "Poltergeist"-esque haunted child thriller called "Insidious" and shot it on a tiny budget of $1.5 million. The result was arguably Wan's best work aside from the original "Saw," and a solid movie that earned $97 million worldwide.

That makes it one of the most profitable indie films ever made, so is it any wonder that a sequel is going forward? With all the key cast and crew members back in the same roles, the only question is where the story will go from here. Considering the ending of the first film, this might have to be a prequel, or the more likely scenario of another family being haunted by the same demon. The production doesn't actually being shooting until mid-January, even though distributor FilmDistrict has already slated it for a late August release."
