Director’s Take On The ‘Horror’ Element In the Aquaman 2
When asked if he will be bringing his main essence, horror, to the new movie, Wan gave an intriguing answer. He said, yes, we can see some part of scariness in the sequel, just like what happened in the first part. In Aquaman (2018), the Trench sequence has a horror touch to it. He also said that the movie takes place underwater, which can be a very scary environment.
In Aquaman, the fans noticed how the Trench scene looked more like a scene from a horror movie rather than a superhero film. Also, Wan admitted that he enjoyed putting a particular scene in the movie.
He mentioned how it [horror] is a big part of who he is. And, naturally, his love for the horror genre gives him the idea of making scenes scarier. He also mentioned that he is saving all the scary plots for the DC film spin-off, ‘The Trench.’
James’ Other Contributions To The Horror Genre
The 43-year-old filmmaker rose to fame with his directorial debut with the film, ‘Saw.’ James later went on to produce and direct some great horror-films, like the ‘Conjuring’ franchise and ‘Insidious.’
