A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape.
Following the events from the first film, a different family; a mother and her 2 sons move into a rural house that's marked for death. When the deputy from the first film learns that this family is next in line to fall to the demon Bhughul, he races before time to stop it and save them from the same fate.
Continues the theme of eerie found footage, but uses older mediums than just super 8 film this time, like vinyl records, radio signals and 16mm film. See more »
During the supermarket scene where Courtney and the boys were running out the building, Courtney tosses the car keys to Dylan but when the camera switches to outside the building, it's Zach who has the car keys and is able to start the ignition for Courtney. Not Dylan, who was handed the keys. It wouldn't have been possible for Dylan to hand Zach the keys within that time. See more »
In a farmhouse near a corn field where Ellison Oswait lived, the boy Dylan (Robert Daniel Sloan) has nightmares and is haunted by ghostly children led by the boy Mile (Lucas Jade Zumann). Dylan lives with his mother Courtney Collins (Shannyn Sossamon), who has just left her abusive husband, and his brother Zach (Dartanian Sloan) and is forced by the ghosts to go to the basement to watch home films in Super 8 of families being slaughtered. Ex-Deputy So & So (James Ransone) is investigating the crime spree of Bughuul (Nicj King) and burning down the houses where the deceased families lived to protect other families. He travels to the farmhouse and finds Courtney and her sons living there. He tells that he is a private investigator and he protects her against a bluff of her ex-husband to keep the children with him. Then he begins a love affair with Courtney. Meanwhile Dylan tells to the ghosts that he will not see any video again but Zach, who is the real choice of the ghosts, replaces him. When their father succeeds in getting a court order to have the custody of the children, Courtney is forced to go with the children. What will happen to the Collins family?
"Sinister 2" is a sequel of "Sinister" with a reasonable story but a very weak conclusion. There are plot holes such as how Zach tied his parents and his brother in the cornfield? Why the ghosts need to make Zach jealous of his brother? Why Zach becomes so bad he is possessed by the Bughuul but the film does not show him as a victim. How the ex- Deputy and Courtney would explain the deaths? Why the need of a piggyback to a next sequel in the end? My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "A Entidade 2" ("The Entity 2")
