This weekend is Father’s Day, and the folks at Gramercy Pictures—a new genre arm under Focus Features—have taken the opportunity to tie the holiday into the upcoming horror sequel Sinister 2 in creepy fashion. Directed by Ciarán Foy (Citadel), the follow-up revolves around a new family moving into a rural house marked for death, as the spirit of Bughuul continues his reign of terror. This Father’s Day clip offers a brief new look at the film that serves as a healthy reminder that there’s a possibility—however slight—that your children might whack you over the head with a large hammer.

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.
