Thanks to FEARnet acquiring the broadcast premiere rights, the network will air James Wan's 2011 horror hit, Insidious, on September 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Starring Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) and Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class), Insidious will also be available on VOD starting Wednesday, September 11.

Insidious introduces audiences to Josh (Wilson) and Renai Lambert (Byrne). After a mysterious incident in the attic, their son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins), falls into a coma. The family's situation declines as Dalton's illness results in terrifying encounters with malevolent ghouls, and a journey into the realm of the dead known as “The Further.”

Wan enjoyed great success this past weekend with The Conjuring, (it topped the box office with $41.5 million), and with his September 13 release of FilmDistrict’s Insidious: Chapter 2 (in which Wilson, Byrne, and Simpkins will reprise their roles), the network is excited to showcase his work.

In a press release statement from Sarah Shannon, FEARnet’s Vice President of Programming and Network Operations, "As a Network, we are big fans of James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s work, so we’re very excited to add Insidious to the FEARnet lineup. It’s a true testament to the filmmakers that they can take a PG13 movie, and build this amazingly creepy aura that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.”
