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.
Sinister 2, although following the same basic elements as the first film, differs in many ways from the first film. It was inspired by Stephen King's Children of the Corn and gives more personality and character to Bughuul, Deputy So & So and the possessed children. According to the filmmakers and the official trailer, the snuff films and found footage become much more elaborate and creative than in the first film. See more »

For starters I really liked the original Sinister film, it wasn't a perfect film and I've yet to post my review on it but it was a nicely done hack and slash thriller, now for Sinister 2 that's a fairly different story altogether. Sinister 2 (2015) we were expecting at least as good as the first, though this film came in short on all levels. Following the story from the original and of course with a new family, it was if the eerie vibe wasn't as strong this time, and the acting was on an even lower level this time.
Sinister 2 (2015) just didn't seem to be as strong as the first but I'm not saying the film was a complete fail, it did have a fairly done script. I'd say the rough parts of the film were the twins and the ghosts, their acting is a bit of the things that through the vibe off. I do think with a better cast and a bit more on the story versus rushing it through it could've been a better film.
