28 Dec - Yes, you might've seen him in the "Saw", "Insidious" and other films in between, but whatever it is, you know that actor-director-screenwriter Leigh Whannell knows his horror right down to a tee.
So when Cinema Online got the chance to talk to him about his upcoming film, "Insidious: The Last Key" in Hong Kong recently, we obviously couldn't help but to introduce our Asian ghosts like Pontianak and Toyol to the horror master himself.
The 40-year-old who has written three of the first "Saw" films and all four of the "Insidious" films, said that his filmmaker friend James Wan of "The Conjuring" fame who was born in Malaysia, had helped him with his knowledge on ghosts in Asia.
"My friend, James Wan, who made the "Saw" and first two "Insidious" films with me was born in Malaysia. He used to tell me about some of them.
"They are definitely nothing like Western ghosts, I love it! I think the Pontianak and Toyol can be in a film together," quipped Whannell who said he could maybe look into writing about them.
