First Sinister 2 teaser brings the scares: watch now

Sinister 2 has unveiled a first teaser trailer, and in 16 seconds flat it manages to tick off a lot of horror boxes including a host of creepy kids, a scythe-wielding demon and a helplessly screaming heroine.

It seems that the spirit of Buhguul is back to its old tricks, as Shannyn Sossamon and her twin 9-year-old sons find themselves thoroughly spooked after moving into a creepy old house in the country. As you do…

Take a look at the new teaser, below…

Seems like the moral of the story here is that if you happen upon a stash of dusty home videos kicking around the attic, leave them well alone! And maybe move house…

Directed by Ciaran Foy from a script co-written by original helmer Scott Derrickson, Sinister 2 will open in the UK and US on 21 August 2015.
