Trivia: When Josh is in his classroom, the infamous puppet from the Saw series can be seen on the chalkboard behind him.


Trivia: The "Bride in Black" is played by a man wearing women's clothing. This was done so that something would feel "off" about the image of the ghost. At the time, the character was intended to be female. However, when the creators later reused the character for the sequel and added in a backstory, they worked the fact that the character was played by a male as part of his backstory - it actually is a man who masqueraded as a woman as a disguise to lure in victims.

More quotes from Insidious

Question: When Josh is in the further looking for Dalton, what is the deal with the family that looks like mannequins and has the creepy smiles? Why does the one girl shoot the family? Is there any back story on it?

Chosen answer: It's implied that the girl went crazy and killed her family, but it's not really elaborated on. They're just some of the many spirits to be trapped in and haunt the Further, likely due to the violent nature of their deaths.
