Sinister 2 Reviews

December 8, 2019
One of the weaker sequels in the Blumhouse arsenal in terms of terror and suspense, Sinister 2 is nevertheless solid filmmaking with high production values, interesting script and character development

The movie does what it says. Sinister 2 is all about the feeling that something evil, menacing, and disturbing will happen; that's what it literally leaves you hoping for.

Sinister 2 doesn't rise to the level of classic, but it is an effective continuation of the original, spooky enough to rank as a very decent horror outing.

Sinister 2 is a definite improvement on the first film, enriching the narrative with a heavier emphasis on mood and expanding the universe as a whole.

The ghost children require the boys to watch home movies of murder; in this way, the film ritualizes the 'aesthetic observance of violence' (to quote one character) that gives its particular bogeyman -- and the horror genre -- life.

In most respects, it's an improvement over its predecessor, but it's still more of the same with better characters. Watchable, but hardly essential.

This sequel has an eerie effect that stays with you long after it's over. [Full review in Spanish]

This may not be as scary or cohesive as its predecessor, but the kill films retain their power to shock and Ransone and Sossamon make for a very watchable lead pairing.

Like Roger Corman's The Pit and the Pendulum, Sinister 2 cheerfully tries to make sense of where sadism springs from.

...the relatively fresh, non-retread atmosphere is certainly a refreshing change of pace from most repetitive horror sequels.

This sequel, as rough as it is, might be more worthwhile than its 2012 original.

The horror aspects are in full force: The snuff films through which Bughuul travels include unflinching looks at whole families being murdered in the most painful possible ways

The kids are great and the change of perspective does offer some different chills to the claustrophobic first movie. But there is no big twist to look forward to. And now the ghosts have stepped out of the shadows, they just don't seem that scary.

Sinister 2 comes up a bit short on creative resources, although director Ciaran Foy probably gets enough right to entice those partial to the original.
