In honor of National Twins Day, Bughuul sent me a little present. Earlier today, two of “his children” hand delivered a wooden box with a dead rat in it – and apparently it’s a real dead rat. If that’s not creepy enough, the box also had a flash drive with a brief clip from the film on it. You know how those home movies were some of the freakiest parts of the original film? Just wait until you see how far director Ciarán Foy and writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill take it in the sequel.
You can check out the Sinister 2 clip/viral video for yourself below but be warned, it’s especially gory and very NSFW. The movie is set to hit theaters nationwide on August 21st and stars James Ransone, Shannyn Sossamon, Lea Coco and, of course, real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan. As the card that came with the package warns, “Don’t let your other half rat you out …”
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.
