Wow! Glad Wan got the chance to change the main demon, in Conjuring 2, into the Nun, even though it was so late in production
I am even more impressed that New Line gave Wan the go ahead at the last minute to make a change that close to end of production. That just goes to show you how being a great director/filmmaker gains you a lot of clout in the movie industry. Cannot wait for The Nun. Sounds good to me.
The doll got her own film.
Yeah it's called The Convent lol
He said in an interview that he KNEW he was going to do some reshoots. It'd be nice to see the cut stuff on the BD but Wan isnt really one for releasing footage :v (
Yes, it would be cool to see the original proposed demon with the horns. It's funny to think that the nun has made such an impact on viewers. Almost every post I've read really liked that character and yet it almost wasn't to be. I think it was a wise move on Wan's part. He got an idea that he felt could make his film better and went with it. It certainly paid off.
I agree. Personally I like the way the Nun looks, appearance-wise. She sort of reminds me of the ugly old hag in black from Insidious.
The hag from Insidious is another character I love, as well as the old gypsy woman in Drag Me to Hell. There is something about old women with rotten teeth that give me the shivers..LOL.
Absolutely. Insidious wouldn't have cut it if Darth Maul was the only antagonist.
Although... Mary Shaw looked great in Dead Silence and that film stunk to high heavens.
Forgot about Mary Shaw. Great character. I actually like Dead Silence, but not nearly as much as Insidious. I think Wan was cutting his teeth as a director on that one. Wasn't it his first film?
Yes yes yes! Mary Shaw, the hag, the nun. That is just a creepy look altogether.
Nope. It was his follow up to Saw. You have to read this:
Very interesting read. It leaves me with a lot of thoughts. Do you think Leigh Whannell actually despises Dead Silence OR the process of being a screenwriter in Hollywood? He pretty much admits to pulling the ideas for the film out of his ass, so to speak, but he was still creative enough to offer them something, even though in the end, not all of the final work was his. I have no illusions that directors are treated much differently from screenwriters, and I don't doubt that much of Wan's clout comes from the fact that he has made the studio a shit load of money, and furthermore, that any screenwriter associated with Wan, would probably be given a green light if he wrote a script where the character stuck a finger up their ass, because, after all, he is writing for a James Wan directed film, a director who has churned out hit after hit. Still, they did churn this out before the knew if Saw would be a hit or not. Whannell certainly drills home the reality of Hollywood and his own freshman rookie notions of what he thought Hollywood "was" and actually "is". To be perfectly honest, I love the character of Mary Shaw, but I haven't revisited the film either since its debut in 2004. I would love to know what James Wan's take is on this film. Dead Silence is certainly no masterpiece, but I've seen much worse.
Have you seen it recently?
Update on The Nun:
Sounds interesting. Having the nun potentially tie into Annabelle's story could be pretty neat.
I can not get enough of that nun. She scared the shit of me in The Conjuring 2. When this is released, first day for me.
I really liked the nun too. I feel like there's more potential there for a spin-off than with Annabelle. Fingers crossed this new Annabelle film is better than the first.
