10 Frightening Facts You Might Not Know About ‘Insidious’
Insidious, the 2010 horror movie from director James Wan, made almost $100 million and has spawned a trilogy of films. But, the original was shot with a budget of just $1.5 million and produced in just three weeks! That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes a trip into The Further with Insidious!
Wan, who went on to direct Furious 7, and writer Leigh Whannel both worked together previously on the very first Saw film.

Just a little easter egg for all you horror fans.
