Technology is amazing. Never in a million years did I think that conducting a seance online would be a something I’d see happen in my lifetime. New media is certainly giving the old wooden Quija board a run for its money! FilmDistrict is asking fans and viewers alike to participate in an online seance as a new form of marketing to accompany the release of ‘Insidious: Chapter 2‘ slated to open Sept. 13th.
Here is the link to the official site if you’d like to check it out. It’s a little silly, but it seems like a pretty awesome way to get into the ‘spirit’ of the sequel (couldn’t resist). All you have to do is allow access to your webcam, just don’t blame us if a spirit crosses over and decides to haunt your ass: http://www.insidiousch2.com/#/video
New gallery shots have also been released for the film. A few quite spooky in fact! We’ve included them here for your viewing pleasure:
A lot of these photos beg the question, WHO IS THAT? While other photos are pretty harmless, you can already feel the tension rising just by looking at this cute little family and the terror they’re about to ensue. For those of you that need a refresher on the synopsis for the newest installment, allow me to oblige:
“The famed horror team of director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell reunite with the original cast of Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Barbara Hershey and Ty Simpkins in INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2, a terrifying sequel to the acclaimed horror film, which follows the haunted Lambert family as they seek to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.”
Patrick Wilson seems to be up to his eyeballs in horror these days, as he’s just fresh off of the white-knuckle-hauntingly-terrifying-creepy-doll-get-me-away-from-me scary movie ‘The Conjuring‘ that was released last month. He was pretty fantastic in that role, let’s hope it can keep it coming in the sequel to ‘Insidious’.
Let us know in the comments section below if you intend to participate in this spooky interactive seance or if you’re leaving the scares to the big screen.
Directed by James Wan, ‘Insidious 2’ stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, and Barbara Hershey and will haunt theaters beginning September 13.
