In the clip, horror veteran Shaye (she's been in everything from "Alone in the Dark" to "Wes Craven's New Nightmare") talks about seeing an actual seance in preparation for her role as the medium Elise in "Insidious" and its sequel "Insidious: Chapter 2." For those of you who saw the first film, you might be wondering how her character makes a return--well, you'll just have to find out when the James Wan-directed film hits theaters September 13.

The film reunites stars Shaye, Barbara Hershey, Patrick Wilson, and Rose Byrne immediately following the events of the 2010 film, with the Lambert family facing another supernatural threat--this one much closer to home. Look for our review closer to the release date.
