Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne Talk About “Insidious: Chapter 2!”  The Lamberts Speak!

I loved talking to Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. They’re fun to talk to as they expound on the mythology presented by “Insidious: Chapter 2.” Wilson, fresh from the success of “The Conjuring,” is back to spook us again with his “Conjuring” and “Insidious” director, James Wan. Both he and Byrne are the Lamberts. “Chapter 2” explains what happened in the first film without being an exact copycat of the original. “Insidious: Chapter 2” succeeds in carrying the mythos from the first. Yes, it’s still creepy!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Why the sequel works well!
*** How did they find their characters again?
*** Patrick Wilson’s character twist
*** Going further into the further
*** The film as a domestic drama masquerading as a horror – like Kramer vs. Kramer vs. The Poltergeist
*** The Parker vs. Marilyn angle of the film
*** Decisions made in the first film can now be exposed in the second
*** I’m officially calling Patrick Wilson – the Scream King of this generation
