Because we all asked for it, a sequel to Sinister reels in

Mar. 1, 2013by: Ryan Miller

We've known for a while that there has been interest in exploring a sequel to SINISTER but there hasn't been any official word, until now. Deadline is reporting that Blumhouse Productions is officially moving forward with the sequel to Scott Derrickson's box-office hit SINISTER.

While everything is still in the early stages it is said that Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill will return to co-write the story. No word on whether or not Derrickson will return to direct but right now it looks like he's going to at least stick around as producer.

SINISTER was made on a $3 million budget and has since earned over $77 million at the box office so this shouldn't come to anyone's surprise that they decided to move forward with a sequel.

Not sure how I feel about this. The original film was legitimately creepy and offered some refreshing scares so I have a hard time seeing the sequel being able to repeat that - as many never come close. I'd much rather see Derrickson and Cargill put their heads together for another original idea, but who knows, maybe this sequel will break the mold and offer a rare second installment that can be just as good as the original.

Cross your fingers!

Stupid!

Only reason the film did well is because they spent nothing to make it (which it showed) and they did a decent job on the trailers. The movie sucks! I didn't think it could get much worse than Paranormal Activitiy, but Sinister proved me wrong.

Hmmm? torn

Kinda want it, kinda don't. How do you continue a closed storyline about a monster with no real background (making this the reason the movie was scary in the first place) without forever altering the original concept?
Familiar shades of Poltergeist: From :
"You moved the headstone but not the bodies! WHY WHY!!!" and "It is the beast. Now clear your minds. It knows what scares you."
To
Poltergeist II (and III)Nope Never mind. It was REALLY just some old fanatic cult leader who wants your

Wait? What???
The only saving grace is that the writer/director said at the sneak preview that there had been plans to continue the story if the "first one" was successful and that he had it all "mapped out" so... Maybe.

Different demon, different story

I want this to be an anthology series. Sinister 2 can follow a different demon, other than the boogeyman. Maybe Chernobog who is the God of death and darkness. Or Pyro the god of falsehood, he could do more camera tricks and stuff to fuck with peoples minds... Bagul is done and over with, there is nothing more they can explain and they can't do a child thing again...

I liked it, and thought it was creepy.

But it definitely lost me a bit toward the end. Once they started showing more (especially the sequence with the bad CGI on the ghost-kids in his house), it ruined some of the suspense. I also saw the "twist" far ahead of time. But the first half was genuinely creepy and freaked me out. Sadly, I see this going the way of Saw, Final Destination, Paranormal Activity, etc. - they'll just keep pumping out low-budget sequels until audiences eventually get bored. Welcome to Hollywood.

Overrated

I think all the hype for this movie ruined it for me, I went in with giant hopes and left extremely disappointed. To me it felt like the whole time they were trying sooooo hard to be scary, but it just all fell flat...
