A sequel to Scott Derrickson’s 2012 sleeper hit has been long in the works, and today we’ve finally been given our very first look at the Ciaran Foy-directed sequel, which picks up in the aftermath of the original film. It’s a surprising choice of director, too, simply because Foy only has one other feature film under his belt, Citadel. While he no doubt had a solid enough debut, I’m curious to see how he faces his second ever feature film, especially one as big as this.
With the film due to hit theaters later this summer, we’re finally starting to catch a glimpse of what Foy has in store. The first set of stills are appropriately eerie, offering not much other than shadows and that nightmare-fueled projector. Although Derrickson isn’t back to helm the sequel, he did have a heavy hand in its creation as he scripted the film alongside C. Robert Cargill.
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.
Sinister 2 stars Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Robert and Dartanian Sloan. See it in theaters on August 21, 2015.
