“Insidious” raises the fear factor by playing with the audiences emotions

Rose Byrne Patrick WilsonInsidious“, the new horror film from the creators of the “Saw” franchise opens today and stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. Instead of the gratuitous blood and gore the horror genre is known for, this film raises the audiences adrenaline level by playing on the real human emotion associated with an average family, tired and stressed like the rest of the world, who suddenly finds themselves face to face with a supernatural event.

Byrne says it was not difficult to get into the vibe of the film. “It was very instinctual. I mean, when people jump out of closets at you, it’s scary. There was a lot of creepy music playing, things rocking, men staring at me through the window — I didn’t have to cast my mind really at all.”

Both actors have starred in a variety of different genres, but Byrne says this thriller did not prove to be any easier to make than any one of her other films. ” I think they’re all exhausting in their own way. Comedy is so hard – it’s like drama but you have to get a laugh. For me, they’re all exhausting. ”

Wilson agrees, adding,” I think in a weird way, horror is similar to comedy in that it’s really up to the edit. The way you deal with a scare is the way you deal with a laugh. The timing has to be perfect. When you’re dealing with fear or laughter – emotions that happen spontaneously – you hope it’s working. But in the moment, you really have no idea. Just keep asking the crew, “how was that?”
