Sinister 2 
Painfully Stupid, Forcibly Made Sequel
0.5/4 stars

I am a fan of 'Sinister'. I was surprised by how effectively scary I found it to be. The complete exact opposite can be said for this terrible sequel. I knew it wouldn't be good, but DAMN did it suck. Our returning boogeyman 'Bughuul' feels like less of a presence. The mystery surrounding the entity was found out by the end of the first film. Here, there is no new mystery or any added mythology. Certain side characters only exist to give exposition about what we already know. The bulk of the movie is focused on a new family whom we must watch go through the same events, only this time the drama surrounding their home life is agonizingly boring. A woman and her sons have run away from the abusive father. I cared not at all for their struggles. It's handled so piss-poorly. The young boys are blank slates and the man playing the father is downright awful in every sense. It doesn't help that their characters are badly written. The plot is full of so many conveniences that come out of nowhere. No tension is ever attempted. Not a second of this film is close to resembling something that could be considered scary. So many terrible, fake jump scares are abound. Every single one is setup the same: person hears a noise/sees something, walks towards it, then a predictably timed BOO follows. This is a great textbook example of everything that is wrong with most mainstream horror movies these days. I was literally laughing out loud during these scenes. It was that bad. The ending is one big goofy mess. Painfully stupid writing is the main offender in the failure of this film. I wanted to get up and leave so many times. It felt forever long, despite having a short runtime. The one thing that sets my rating to the lowest is the complete lack of audience respect the experience gave me. It seems so obviously clear that there was zero creative effort put into this dreck. Another pointless, and forcibly made, horror sequel that no one should ever watch.

Such a disappointment - guess I'll catch this on boring Netflix night sometime in the far future. Makes me wonder if the upcoming Conjuring sequel is going to be just as bad...
