Sinister 2 will enjoy a theatrical release in both the US and the United Kingdom on August 21, 2015. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the newly released red band trailer in the player below! It’s not exactly pushing the envelope as far as red band trailers go. In fact, there’s nary a drop of blood or any profanity by my estimation, but it still gives you a good idea of what’s in store for you in the upcoming second installment in the Sinister series. And it also offers some expository dialogue on the big bad Bughuul.
Sinister 2 stars Shannyn Sossamon (Wayward Pines) and James Ransone (Sinister). Sossamon plays a mother of twin nine year old boys that moves into the home recently vacated by the Oswalt family from the previous film. Ransone will be reprising his role as a deputy sheriff. Like the original, the upcoming sequel will be produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions.
Sinister 2 is helmed by Ciaran Foy who previously directed the horror film Citadel. Scott Derrickson, who co-wrote and directed the first film has penned the screenplay for the sequel with C. Robert Cargill, with whom he scripted the original Sinister film. Derrickson is also serving as a producer on the upcoming sequel.
