Trivia

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 »

Goofs

(at around 8 mins) 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 »

Quotes

Emma: [after Zach brutally bullies Dylan and leaves him with a bloody nose] You don't deserve that.
Peter: You should do something about him.
Ted: And your father.
Catherine: And your mother!
Dylan Collins: [horrified at his imaginary friends' vengeful words] My mother didn't do anything!
Milo: [smiling, almost sadly] Exactly.

I wanted to like it...
11 October 2015 | by lukenutt5See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of the first Sinister, I was beyond excited for this movie. After seeing the trailer, it looked like they were going to go over the top with this one and make it intense. I really wanted that to happen. I really wanted this to be even better than the first.

I didn't get what I wanted.

This is my first review, so I'll keep it short. Everything that I was hoping this film would have, wasn't there. Not really a spoiler, but I felt like it tried to be more of a family drama movie with some supernatural stuff going on in the background. There were non-genuine jump-scares and the acting was less than average. Even with the glaringly bad plot, I sat there trying to look at some positives. The positives are that some scares got me. I'm jumpy even when I know jump-scares are coming, so they got me on that. But when the movie ended, I couldn't help but reflect on how bad the overall story was and how stupid some of the scares were. I won't spoil any of them, but let's just say that you'll probably be wondering how the scares were "genuine" when you really put it into perspective.

I give this movie a 5/10. Mostly because I just really, really wanted to like it. I kept searching for any redeeming qualities throughout the movie and they are slim to none. I recommend watching if you're bored one night and you've seen just about all the horror movies out there. It'll pass the time, but it's just a plain jump-scare fest with a nonsensical story. Don't go in having high expectations like I did.
