Due to the complications of filming Furious Seven, James Wan could not take over the direction of Insidious: Chapter 3.
But Leigh Whannell had been able to look over his buddy Wan’s shoulder long enough. Besides, they’ve already done the saw series together, of course created Insidious: Chapter 3, and Whannell always had a role in the respective films. And since this part should not be a direct sequel, he was able to tolerate fresh blood in the director’s chair well. In fact, Leigh Whannell looked over his friend James Wan’s shoulder very well. For Insidious: Chapter 3 differs in style, play management, and tension structure not a bit from its two predecessors.
