2012s horror movie Sinister was a big surprise hit. It was a success at the box-office, with critics and fans. The original didn’t exactly have that sequel ending, but of course like every other successful horror movie, that means a sequel. It’s pretty rare to see such a gap between horror movies considering how little time and money they really take to make, but maybe that’s a thing this time around. Sinister 2 hits later this year and it just got its first trailer and poster.
In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother and her 9-year-old twin sons find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Buhguul continues to spread with frightening intensity.
I am definitely a fan of the original. It wasn’t just jump scare horror, but psychological horror and flat-out creepy. This incarnation of the Boogyeman, called ‘Mr. Boogie’, is fascinating. I thought the first trailer for the sequel really built on that idea. There were definitely creepy moments planted throughout and looks to further the story enough to get me to want to see it. Plus, those behind all these movies (Blumhouse) seem to know what they’re doing.
Sinister 2 opens on August 21st, 2015. Directed by Ciarán Foy starring James Ransone and Shannyn Sossamon.
