Here Comes The Boogeyman in the “SINISTER 2” Trailer


While Blumhouse become one of the biggest names in horror, producing hit films and franchises left and right, there’s few entries in their pantheon that has resonated with hardcore horror fans as effectively as Scott Derrickson’s SINISTER. The film introduced a terrifying new icon to the horror community with an unsettling mythos as well as story with incredible visuals and performances. And following its welcome reception from casual and horror audiences, the road to the sequel has been one of impatient restlessness and now, fans have their chance to check out the first full trailer for SINISTER 2.

Directed by CITADEL helmer Ciaran Foy, SINISTER 2 appears to be a much different beast than the original SINISTER, focusing on the experience of a child selected by “Mr. Boogie” (a/k/a Bughuul) as well as the return of James Ransone’s Deputy character as the obsessive hunter of the family killing demon. But make no mistake: all the things that made SINISTER so memorable, from waking nightmare sequences to the visceral home movie massacres, look to be back for round two as well. Starring Shannyn Sossamon, SINISTER 2 drops from Focus Features on August 21st, and you can see the trailer below.
