Critic Reviews of "Sinister 2"
GrantlandAugust 26, 2015
There comes a point when you have to say no to these horror sequels. There's no skill or idea visible anywhere, just the sound of money being sucked from your pockets.
ReelViewsAugust 22, 2015
Although Sinister 2 continues the story begun in Scott Derrickson's creepily effective Sinister, it feels more like an unnecessary retread than an organic extension of the original.
NewsdayAugust 21, 2015
Creepy kids and sick jokes make for meager scares, but Ransone is likable as the film's beleaguered hero.
New York Magazine/VultureAugust 21, 2015
This sequel, as rough as it is, might be more worthwhile than its 2012 original.
Globe and MailAugust 21, 2015
Nothing in Sinister 2 comes across as believably scary.
Los Angeles TimesAugust 20, 2015
Nothing about "Sinister 2" comes close to the feel-bad ode to literally and figuratively dark interiors that distinguished the title-earning original.
PajibaSeptember 21, 2016
No one expects low-budget horror sequels to be the height of innovation. But it's still a shame, because it left a talented director without much to work with.
Cairo360April 05, 2016
If ever there was a perfect example of the misguided nature of the film sequel, Sinister 2 is it. You can commend a sequel for trying to build on and expand the original, but this film seems to have regressed.
PopMattersMarch 29, 2016
In a film where ghostly children attempt to force other kids to watch horror movies only to be repeatedly told "I don't' want to", this somehow manages to be a microcosm for Sinister 2. I don't want to watch any more either.
Movie ChambersFebruary 07, 2016
"Sinister 2" depends greatly on cheap scares.
Cinema CrazedJanuary 27, 2016
A lackluster follow up to what was a fairly unimpressive horror entry.
FILMINK (Australia)January 22, 2016
Whilst Sinister 2 at least manages to avoid being a mere re-tread, the final product comes off as decidedly flat.
