We got our first peek at Sinister 2 just a few days ago with a brief teaser for the film, which proudly boasts itself as scarier than Sinister. That’s a pretty big promise to make. The first full-length trailer has now arrived, sporting even more of those eerie 8mm films, a whole group of spooky kids, and yes, the boogeyman is back, too. This time around it looks like Mr. Bughuul has been very, very busy.
WonderCon attendees got a special treat last night at the Blumhouse presentation, as the studio unleashed the first teaser trailer for Sinister 2. Just yesterday, we gave you a sneak peek at the return of the creepy Bughuul with the first images from the upcoming sequel. But you don’t have to be at WonderCon to check out this teaser, which packs some solid chills in its short run time.
Sinister was one of the most successful horror films of 2012, which made the notion of a sequel inevitable. While director Scott Derrickson is busy preparing for Marvel’s Doctor Strange, he’s also producing Sinister 2, with Citadel director Ciaran Foy at the helm. The first images from the upcoming sequel have arrived, and they’ve brought back our old pal Bughuul. Oh, that wacky Bughuul, always terrorizing families wherever he goes.
'Sinister 2,' the sequel to the horror film made popular by star Ethan Hawke and director Scott Derrickson, set up shop in Chicago, where production is currently underway. But does Blumhouse Productions have another hit on its hands? While details on the film were pretty scarce, the production announcement finally unmasked its sinister plot and casting details.
If there's one lesson that every inhabitant of any horror film needs to learn, it's that purposely moving into a haunted house is a bad idea. Moving into any haunted house in general is a bad idea (that's just basic common sense), but settling your family down into a hotbed of evil and bad deeds because that's what you've actually intended to do, well, that's something else entirely.
With the phenomenal success of 'Paranormal Activity' and its sequels, other studios took to copying the formula of making micro-budgeted horror movies, which is partly why we got 'Sinister.' Done for $3 million, it has made over $87 million worldwide, and so it's no surprise they're working on a sequel, which got officially announced today.
