Ah, finally the marketing for horror sequel Sinister 2 is starting to happen, and this makes me very happy indeed.
A few days ago the first images from the Ciaran Foy directed sequel were revealed, and now comes the dreaded teaser for the teaser trailer: this time however, the brief fifteen second tease is well worth your time and effort.
It may be short, but it is filled with horrific imagery, creepy kids, creepy home videos and a creepy voiceover, and the entire fifteen seconds will no doubt leave you feeling unsettled and rather rattled, just like the first film did.
So far (and it’s impossible to base anything on such a short tease) Sinister 2 is looking to be every bit a nerve jangling as its predecessor, and I can’t fucking wait!
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), so no doubt his return will give the sequel some depth in terms of the plot device as he will have already had some experience with Mr Boogie.
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.
