So now we have a new mark, a mother and her two boys who are on the run from their abusive husband/father. Now here is were the film gets a bit mellow one of the boys is shown the old celluloid films by a group of 'ghostly kids'. To me these kids brought the film down a lot, not because of bad acting of s***e lines just because they looked too normal. If you remember Baghul's kids from the original film they had faces that made them look like Baghul (kinda like the lovechild of Joey & Mick from Slipknot). These kids don't have that, they just look like normal kids which mellows it a lot, at times their faces look like they're cracking but I wouldn't call them ghostly.
Much like the first film this is full of jump scares, though it seems to be trying to insert a more atmospheric fear factor. The old films of the murders are nice and creative without giving you a gore fest. The climax of the film is either brilliant or very confusing depending on your point of view. It constantly switches between the family, the ghostly children and the murder child (the child who films the murder of their family and then disappears). To me this was great because it meant I got different views of things and since the murder child is the only one who sees the ghostly children so when the ghostly children are trashing the place it when the perspective changes it looks like things are flying about by themselves which is fun. After Deputy destroys Baghul's timeline the film ends in a slightly obscure fashion reminiscent of the first movie which I have to say I liked a lot.
The recordings feel a lot more shoe horned in than in the original and by definition were not as shocking or disturbing. The macabre figure Bughuul was used more to create 'jump' shocks to the viewer and seemed too peripheral otherwise and the overall story arc concerning the family at the centre of events didn't really grab me.
It has some touches and is not irredeemably bad but that in itself isn't enough to recommend it. Definately watch the first one though.
A shame, because the moment in 'Sinister' when the Evil One moved on a PC screen was truly chilling. This is lacklustre and dull.
Watch the original. Avoid the follow up.
I knew I wasn't going to find the holy grail of horror films with this sequel, but I at least hoped it would have something more to offer than this.
