The New Era (Happy Birthday James Wan!)



In 2004, director James Wan created not only a franchise but a new era in horror. For many it was a gory new era of 'torture' for squeamish fans. But the original "Saw" film (directed by Wan) was a bloody new entry to the history of horror films. With a new follow-up from Chris Rock, the Saw Franchise continues to scare up box office and is now a staple in Halloween shops every Halloween.
But Wan didn't follow his directorial debut with that type of horror. Showing his diversity as a filmmaker, yet still playing in the horror sandbox, he directed "Dead Silence" in 2007 and would create a whole new universe with the "Insidious" and "The Conjuring" franchises. The world would expand with the "Annabelle," "Nun," and "La Llorona" films and with sequels to "Insidious" and "The Conjuring."
He would later leave his comfort zone and direct mega blockbusters "Furious 7" and "Aquaman."
Despite his success, he continues to not only have involvement in horror but is a champion for independent horror filmmakers, as he has brought David F. Sandberg and Michael Chaves among others to the forefront of mainstream film.
All of this in less than two decades. It feels as if he's just getting started. And we horror fans can't wait to see what's in store.
He's directed hard R gore and PG-13 fare and managed to scare the living daylights out of film fans with both. It is a testament to his talent and imagination.
Happy birthday to our new horror king...James Wan.
