Gramercy Pictures has released a new red-band trailer for the horror sequel Sinister 2. Directed by Ciarán Foy (Citadel), the story focuses on a new family in a new home that’s haunted by the terrifying Bughuul, as James Ransone‘s Deputy So and So works to uncover the secrets behind the creature’s existence before it’s too late. I was a big fan of Scott Derrickson‘s original film so I’m definitely curious to see how the story progresses in the follow-up. I’m not sure if delving deeper into the mythology of Bughuul will lessen the impact of what was a striking and disturbing enigma in the first film, but I’m definitely game to find out. And judging by this new trailer, we’re in for yet another series of brutal kills.
Watch the new trailer below. Written by Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill, the film also stars Shannyn Sossamon, Lea Coco, Robert and Dartanian Sloan. Sinister 2 opens in theaters on August 21st.
Here’s the official synopsis for Sinister 2:
The sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie. In the aftermath of the shocking events in “Sinister,” a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of “Wayward Pines”) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life brothers Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Bughuul continues to spread with frightening intensity.
