Collider were provided a brand new clip from upcoming horror sequel, Sinister 2, and it is pretty nasty stuff.
The first Sinister film, directed by Scott Derrickson (who writes and produces here), was a superb horror film, made even better by those seriously nightmarish home videos that popped up every so often. It’s no wonder Ethan Hawke’s Ellison needed a strong whisky everytime he watched one!
The new clip features a brief look at one of the new home videos in Sinister 2, directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel), and it ups the anti on the violence seen in the first film to glorious effect. Check out the clip (if you’re brave enough!) below.
Sinister 2, the follow-up to the 2012 pic that grossed more than $87M worldwide on of a $3M budget, will arrive August 21, 2015. Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy will helm the next chapter, which Sinister director Scott Derrickson is writing with C. Robert Cargill.
The cast includes Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Robert and Dartanian Sloan. Ransone will reprise his role as Deputy So-And-So (he was never named in the first film).
The new franchise follows Blumhouse’s success with the Paranormal Activity and Insidious series of ultra-low-budget genre hits. eOne financed the sequel, with Derrickson and Jason Blum producing.
Here’s the synopsis for Sinister 2:
In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death. James Ransone, who portrayed the concerned sheriff’s deputy in Sinister, will be reprising his character in Sinister 2.
