As promised, the first full trailer for Ciaran Foy’s Sinister 2 has arrived, offering our best look at the summer haunter yet. As I stated when the teaser trailer dropped, Foy has some pretty big shoes to fill now that original director Scott Derrickson stepped away from the helm, but what we see here is certainly promising.
While I quite liked the original Sinister (most of it anyway), the one thing that bugged me was the big reveal and how Buhguul was the driving force behind these killer kids. It’s such a played out trope in the genre, and unfortunately, it appears to be the main focus of Sinister 2. Hopefully Foy and Derrickson have more to offer in the sequel than just a few “creepy” kids. The trailer is solid, though, opening with George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead before unraveling into a sinister return for Mr. Boogie.
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.
