'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.
