‘Sinister 2′ Has Already Begun

Sinister
Summit Entertainment

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.

‘Paranormal Activity 4′ Causes French Audiences to Riot, Urinate in the Theater

Paranormal Activity 5
Paramount Pictures

To date 'Paranormal Activity 4' has made over $130 million in worldwide box-office. Not bad, but that doesn't mean everyone is a fan. Exhibit A: the French. 'Paranormal Activity 4' opened in French theaters two weeks ago and was met with some...unhappy audiences. Audiences that expressed their frustration by looting the candy counters, verbally assaulting the workers and, yes, using the movie theater as a bathroom.

‘Sinister 2′ – Is This the Start of a New Horror Franchise?

Sinister
Summit Entertainment

'Sinister 2' looks like an almost certain possibility even though ‘Sinister’ finished the weekend in third place. The horror film still made money ($18 million) given its low budget ($3 million). While not a sensation on the level of ‘Paranormal Activity,' the profit margin makes ‘Sinister 2’ look likely from a business perspective. But could it work from a storytelling perspective?

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Taken 2′ Keeps the Box Office in a Chokehold

Box Office Taken 2
Fox

'Taken 2' may have held onto the top spot at the box office, but that doesn't mean there weren't other winners this weekend. Actually, most of the new releases opened well and the overall top ten is significantly stronger than it was last week. With a few exceptions, it was a good showing for all involved.

Retro Rental: ‘Sinister’ Is as Freaky and Fragile as ‘One Hour Photo’

Retro Rental
Summit Entertainment/Fox Searchlight

Around the time I saw the new Ethan Hawke-led horror film, 'Sinister' -- a film a lot of critics seem to like, and, at the most begrudgingly, a film that I wish were better, if that makes sense, as it has some smart things in it -- I was cleaning out my desk in a fit of procrastination. Among the USB keys of Alexandria and product registration cards was a Kodax Max camera, six of its 27 pictures used, its bright disposable body either shining yellow or solid utilitarian black, with a "Develop before 09/2005" emblazoned on it. And while it wasn't a series of reels of Super-8 being dropped off by an elder God who feeds on both story and sorrow as in 'Sinister,' that Kodak Max camera out of nowhere did make me turn my head and ask: Hmm, what's on you?

‘Sinister’ Review

Sinister
Summit Entertainment

Ethan Hawke's Ellison Oswald may have the coolest name of a film character this year, but he's having a streak of professional bad luck. His first true crime book, 'Kentucky Blood,' was a best seller than accomplished what the police couldn't do in tracking down a murderer at large. That was years ago, however, and his follow up books haven't just been duds, they've led to wrongful actions that have put the public at risk. There's little love for him among police captains, particularly of the small town where he's just schlepped his family.

If you've ever seen a horror movie, you should know what happens next. Don't ever move to a new house. That's one of the lessons of the goofy, yet effective, supernatural horror flick 'Sinister.'

It's that time of the year where scary movies begin to descend on theaters in anticipation of Halloween. One of the most promising this year is 'Sinister,' which stars Ethan Hawke, and it doesn't rely on found footage for the entire movie.

Summit, The Weinstein Company

When it comes to big summer movies, getting moved around the calendar is often a big deal. When it comes to smaller movies, a little less so. But for positioning purposes both 'Sinister' and 'Killing Them Softly' have had their release dates pushed back.
