Earlier this month, FilmDistrict held a video contest in search of the biggest Insidious fan ever, hosted by director James Wan. The prize? A walk-on role in INSIDIOUS CHAPTER 2.
After a nationwide search that generated over 800 fan video submissions and 250,000 views on the film’s official YouTube channel, the winner has been selected!
The announcement was officially made on the film’s Facebook page(https://www.facebook.com/InsidiousFilm) and James Wan via a Twitter photo from set last night that said, “We sifted thru tons of entries. Everyone's a winner in my book, but like Connor Macleod said, there can be only one.”
