Although Henry Hall's song "Hush, Hush, Hush (Here Comes the Boogeyman)" was heavily used in most of Sinister 2's trailers, it has nothing to do with Sinister 2 and was never actually used in the film itself. See more »
(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 »

At the end of the credits, you can hear static immediately followed by a short tune of a child playing a piano. Similar to the piece heard on the Ham Radio during the movie. See more »

What's the most dangerous? The dark force or the evil father.
The first film was good, I enjoyed it, but not scary. So a sequel was expected and it failed to live up to the standards of the original. I would say, it was a decent horror film, with more story and drama than the creepy atmosphere. One character retained from the previous and the core theme remained, but tried a different method of narration. Something like 'Goodnight Mommy' with two brothers and mystery events surrounding them.
It definitely lacks what a horror film required the most, and predictable too. But the story wise, it was decent, because the actors did a good job. So it is an average film. I expected a better ending and it did not conclude at its best leaving me disappointing. The way it ended might have been the suitable for the story, but I wasn't impressed. Again, another sequel is most certain, so I think this tale is not over yet and chances are very high that the story would follow with the same cast.
It was not a bad flick, but not a follow-up you would have wanted. If you're looking for a genuine horror film, then you should skip it. There's nothing brilliance to appreciate at any level. Overall, I too felt it should have been better in some places. So my advise is if you forget its genre and try to enjoy that you're watching some movie that you don't know its category then surely would have a decent time with it.
