Rating History

Split
Split (2017)
10 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

+ One incredible performance, two great ones, palpable atmosphere, fantastic cinematography, and a wonderful ending.

- One or two plot contrivances, two mediocre performances

Overall: my third-favorite Shyamalan film, and the one that truly marks this once-revered filmmaker's return from revilement.

Sinister 2
Sinister 2 (2015)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I'll try to make this short and informative:

+Creepy atmosphere
+Good acting
+Provides some good expansion on the mythology established in the first film
+Likeable main character...

-...who is substantially less likeable than Ethan Hawke's character
-Extremely clunky dialogue scenes
-Some very obvious plot contrivances
-Excess of horror-movie logic
-Too many dumb subplots

Overall: definitely a few steps down from the 2012 original, but far better than the Tomatometer would have you believe
