At WonderCon, Sony Pictures previewed a new trailer for their upcoming ‘based-on-a-true-story’ release Deliver Us From Evil. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and stars Joel McHale (Community), Olivia Munn (Attack of the Show!), Edgar Ramirez (Domino) and Eric Bana (Munich) were on hand to discuss the real life exorcism the film is based on, whether the cast believes it to be true and just what separates exorcism films from other genre films. For a full recap of the Deliver Us From Evil footage shown and bullet point highlights from the Q&A, hit the jump. The trailer screened emphasized the ‘based-on-real-events’ tag, intercutting footage from the movie with interviews from police officer Ralph Sarchie on whom the film is based. There are a number of creepy images in the new trailer – the rolling plush toy from earlier trailers, a pale man with a whole lot of self-inflicted wounds, »

From filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Deliver Us From Evil tells the story of the real-life series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes that police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) began investigating in New York. As frightening events occur around the city, Sarchie teams up with an unconventional priest (Édgar Ramírez) who is schooled in the rituals of exorcism. While at WonderCon to promote the film’s July 2nd theatrical release, actress Olivia Munn (who plays Sarchie’s wife and the mother of his child) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how she got involved with this project, why she only likes horror movies if they’re based on a true story, creating a great family core at the center of the film, why having Magic Mike and the first season of The Newsroom come out at the same time changed the way people saw her, »

Released in 2012, Sinister was an immensely effective horror movie, coming from the always reliable Blumhouse Productions, starring Ethan Hawke as a novelist investigating a strange murder that took place in his new home. Since it pocketed over $77 million in the world wide box office, off a budget of $3 million, a sequel was always on the cards. Now, the original's director, Scott Derrickson, took to Twitter to announce that the project is going ahead, and a director has been found in the form of Ciaran Foy, who was responsible for the critically acclaimed Irish horror Citadel. Nothing else is known of the project, other than Derrickson will once again write the script with co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Production is set to begin in July. Foy really showed he had a talent for the genre with Citadel, and I am excited to see what he can do with the follow-up to one »

Horror franchises are difficult to get right, and it's a built-in problem that seems hard to avoid. Much of what works on us in a great horror movie is fear of the unknown, dread that the filmmaker carefully cultivates. When you end up making a sequel to a horror film, you are automatically dealing with a known quantity, and the more often you return to a movie monster, the more you familiarize it to the audience, and the less effective it becomes. At this point, I have a hard time imagining anyone being afraid of Freddy Kruger, and if you look at the way they handled him over the run of the film series, the solution that the filmmakers embraced was to make him more and more comedy-driven, robbing him of whatever ability to scare he had in his initial appearance. It's happened with plenty of characters over time. Scott Derrickson directed the first "Sinister, »

In January, Scott Derrickson, the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, watched a somewhat under-the-radar horror movie from the U.K. called Citadel about a single father fighting to save his daughter from a gang of feral kids. As you can see from the above tweet, Derrickson was a bit of a fan and reached out to director Ciarán Foy on Twitter to let him know he dug his movie. Four months later and here we are with Derrickson taking to Twitter to announce that Foy will be directing Sinister 2. Sometimes the Internet sure does make the world seem small. We've known for awhile that Derrickson would not be directing the sequel to his own hit film about a novelist who uncovers the truth behind a string of grizzly murders, and that he would produce...

When a sequel to the horror film Sinister was announced over a year ago, director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill were said to be reteaming for the film. And while Derrickson is still attached as a producer and writer, the filmmaker just revealed on Twitter that Ciaran Foy, the director of Citadel (which won the Midnighter Audience Award at SXSW in 2012), will be at the helm of the horror sequel this time. If you haven't seen that spectacular psychological horror thriller, you can watch the trailer right here, and then seek out the film right away. It shows that Foy is perfect to direct Sinister 2 in place of Mr. Derrickson. Still no details on how the story of the sequel will play out, but recalling the story of the first film, it only makes sense that the mysterious spooky figure and the creepy children that come in »

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the attic again, Scott Derrickson’s chilling horror movie Sinister is getting a sequel that’s set to begin filming this summer. Blumhouse Productions, which has perfected the art of the low-budget, big profit horror movie, intends to release Sinister 2 in 2015.

Robert Cargill writing the script together, but there will be a change of hands when it comes to directing duties. It’s unclear why Derrickson decided not to direct the sequel, though it’s possible that he’s turning his attention back to his planned remake of Dutch ...

Great horror films are somewhat of a rarity in Hollywood, which explains why fans of the genre were so taken with Sinister, an engrossing and genuinely disturbing flick about a true crime writer who, after moving his family into a house where another family was previously murdered, stumbles across a box filled with tapes depicting the grisly murders of multiple families. And though Sinister‘s shattering conclusion may have led viewers to conclude that there wasn’t much room for a sequel, Sinister 2 is already well on the way.
Today, Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil), who both co-wrote and directed the first film, announced via his Twitter page that he has selected a reaplcement for the sequel: Citadel director Ciaran Foy.

When Sinister 2 moves into production this summer, it will do so under the direction of Ciaran Foy. Sinister helmer Scott Derrickson broke the news to his Twitter followers this evening. Film begins this July for Blumhouse Productions and eOne. Why is this good news? Because Foy directed the UK thriller Citadel, a quiet, disturbing film which impressed me in 2012. It's exciting to see him on board another project and making his U.S. debut.

Breaking news that I, for one, am stoked as hell on. Sinister/the upcoming Deliver Us From Evil director Scott Derrickson announced, via Twitter, today that the soon coming Sinister 2 has officially found its director in Irish filmmaker Ciaran Foy. Foy shocked a lot of viewers with his powerful and intense 2012 film Citadel, and seems like the perfect fit to helm the sequel to Sinister, with a script co-written by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill (who had both previously co-written the first Sinister film together). Seems like a great fit! Expect more info as it comes, fright fiends!!
