“Insidious” Director James Wan: Tired of torture porn, “I want to make my romantic comedy”

Seven years after launching the horror franchise “Saw,” director James Wan wants to revitalize the genre once more with his haunted house thriller, “Insidious.” Like “Saw,” it was an independent production and written by his long-time collaborator Leigh Whanell.

However, “Insidious” boasts none of the gore that defines their biggest hit and comes with a PG-13 rating.

The Malaysian-born, Australia-raised director sat down with indieWIRE to discuss his change of pace and why he loves to scare the bejesus out of audiences.

“I want to prove to people that it is more than possible to make a scary movie that isn’t a hardcore rated film, that doesn’t need blood or guts. There’s not a single drop of blood in “Insidious.” I believe you can craft a really creepy, suspenseful movie without any of that. I mean, look at “The Others” and “The Sixth Sense.””
