Sinister II

Twins make the worst paranormal victims because you have to haunt them twice as much as normal.

Which is why the ghost-children in this horror movie only torment one sibling.

Every night Dylan (Robert Daniel Sloan) is visited by a group of adolescent apparitions that haunt the abandoned farmhouse their mother (Shannyn Sossamon) moved him and his brother Zach (Dartanian Sloan) in to.

Jealous of his brother's newfound friends, Zach attempts to gain their favour by abusing his brother and watching the horrify home videos that his squeamish brother refuses to.

Meanwhile, an ex-deputy (James Ransone) with knowledge of the home's history hopes to torch it and the sinister Super 8 reels inside.

Thanks to its untalented new cast and scream-free script, this slapdash sequel to the surprisingly distributing original fails to capitalize off of its predecessor's cult status.

Furthermore, who needs ghost-kids when twins are scary in and of themselves?
