Spoilers follow ...

For a story about a bereaved mother with two young sons, this could have been a lot worse. I have a low tolerance for bratty depictions of troubled youngsters in films like this, and the often dewy-eyed mother's intense efforts in trying to 'understand' them. Luckily, that kind of drippery is in short supply here, with Director Ciaran Foy clearly more concerned with horror atmospherics.

For any unacquainted with the original, it is difficult not to notice how little explanation there is for events here. In some ways it is a good thing that we head straight into the thrust of the narrative, but in others it must be frustrating playing 'the long game' in order for newcomers to be enlightened about the ongoing story.

The main protagonist is Bughuul from the earlier film, who looks very much like the lead character in Top Cow's 'The Darkness' comics. He makes surprisingly brief appearances here – such restraint is commendable, although it would have been nice to see a little more of him. Perhaps nice is the wrong word.

There are several story strands here, but sadly, only the evil ghostly children's growing influence on young Zack (Dartanian Sloan) has any sense of progression. Other interesting elements, like Zack becoming the bully his father Clint (Lea Coco) was, and the father's abusive behaviour towards the likable Courtney - as well as her relationship with the 'Ex-Deputy' - are plot-threads presented more or less in isolation amidst everything else, and they remain severely under-developed and subsequently not as interesting as they deserve to be.

Despite the convincing acting, I feel that too much reliance is placed on the young cast members. It is too much to ask that scenes of such horrific 'weight' to them should be adequately conveyed by the juniors.

The highlight for me here is Tomandandy's amazing, doom-laden score. Throughout, the music adds an extra layer of intensity and dark foreboding. The soundtrack is available to buy and makes for pretty unsettling listening on its own.

A sequel we all wanted, but didn't get

Sinister 1 was a massive hit and a big surprise for me, might as well say it out loud, that it found itself in my favorite horror movie list. When they announced the sequel I got really excited... I tried not to get too excited, since after all it's a Hollywood horror movie sequel and those don't do good most of the time.

When it was released, it hit hard, like a truck...Terribe, just godawful script, overly exaggerated jump scares WHY. It's like they completely ignored what the first movie was about. Also, what's up with showing Bughuul like every 5 minutes. That just ruined the whole secrecy and mystery about "it".

The ONLY good thing they included from the first movie was the Deputy So and So and his efforts to stop this whole cycle. But it wasn't enough to save this movie from being dogs*it, pardon my language.

I heavily suggest you not to waste your time on it...

5.3 Rating? Really?

The current IMDb rating of 5.3 is at least 3 points higher than the movie deserves. The budget for the move is shown is $10 million, and I am willing to bet that none of it went toward writing a decent script. And I say this in spite of the fact that I have a very low quality threshold when it comes to horror movies.
