Modern horror sequels are often failures. I thought that as the first film wasn't great that I wouldn't be as disappointed if this film turned out to be bad. I was wrong, Compared to this, the first instalment was a masterpiece and this made me realise how it was successful at achieving its goals sometimes. 'Sinister 2' was quite scary in places. No doubt, the cinema playing the film super loud helped elevate the jump scares though. The creepy depictions of murder in the first film were crazily overdone in this. The screenplay was terrible. The main story was stale and predictable and the characters were unsympathetic and cold. The performances were poor all over this film in particularly the ghost children seemed like they were performing a rubbish school pantomime. Overall, I can't be too surprised with what I thought of this film but, sadly, I can see sequels for this being churned out more and more in the future. ★½
