Sinister 2 – Official Red Band Trailer #1 – Shannyn Sossamon

sinister-2Sinister 2 follows on from the 2012 original, this time with a young mother and her twin sons moving into a rural house that’s marked for death.

There’s a fair few grizzly-looking events in this horror sequel trailer, but nothing scary whatsoever, and it’s a good example of when a bad Hollywood has run out of ideas. The first Sinister looked so tedious that I didn’t bother with it, but originality was never Hollywood’s strong point.

This sequel stars Shannyn Sossamon as Courtney, a young mother who, with her twin sons, move into a rural house that’s marked for death… yes, death. WTF?!

Oh, and Shannyn Sossamon. You remember her, right? No? Well, that’s understandable, as her last big film was also her first – A Knight’s Tale, co-starring the late Heath Ledger, all the way back in 2001.

Sinister 2 also stars James Ransone, Nicholas King, Tate Ellington, Delphine Pontvieux and Lucas Jade Zumann. Writers Scott Derrickson and C Robert Cargill return, but instead of the former directing again, Ciaran Foy (Citadel) takes the mantle.

I haven’t seen the first one it looked terrible and scare-free, and based on this trailer, that will not change for the sequel.

Sinister 2 gets a release in UK cinemas on August 21st, the same day as the US.
