'Citadel' Director Ciaran Foy Gets Behind the Camera for 'Sinister 2'
When a sequel to the horror film Sinister was announced over a year ago, director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill were said to be reteaming for the film. And while Derrickson is still attached as a producer and writer, the filmmaker just revealed on Twitter that Ciaran Foy, the director of Citadel (which won the Midnighter Audience Award at SXSW in 2012), will be at the helm of the horror sequel this time. If you haven't seen that spectacular psychological horror thriller, you can watch the trailer right here, and then seek out the film right away. It shows that Foy is perfect to direct Sinister 2 in place of Mr. Derrickson.
Still no details on how the story of the sequel will play out, but recalling the story of the first film, it only makes sense that the mysterious spooky figure and the creepy children that come in tow after some twisted home videos are discovered will terrorize another family. Remember, this one comes from Blumhouse Productions, the company behind all the latest popular horror franchises like Insidious, The Purge and Paranormal Activity, so this should be something to look forward to in the horror genre.
With all the generic horror going on it's nice to see movies like Insidious and Sinister getting sequels. They aren't genre bending and could easily be considered generic but the directorial talent makes them a cut above. Hopefully the same can be done with sinister 2.

Oh for goodness sakes when was the last time there was ever a horror film without any silly paranormal stuff happening! It's everywhere! Horror does not always have to involve the word PARANORMAL which is what Hollywood is clearly forgetting these days! What happened to do the slasher horror genre and what happened to the creature horror genre! There is barely originality in horror now it's just the same thing over and over again! Now we are just going to be getting these silly generic sequels all thanks to people like you that support this nonsense! The same reason why we have these stupid parody films being plunged out the box office each year, always an audience that is stupid enough to buy anything which is how they continue to make money for nothing.
