A Sequel to Sinister Reels In

We’ve known for a while that there has been interest in exploring a sequel to SINISTER but there hasn’t been any official word, until now. Deadline is reporting that Blumhouse Productions is officially moving forward with the sequel to Scott Derrickson’s box-office hit SINISTER.

While everything is still in the early stages it is said that Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill will return to co-write the story. No word on whether or not Derrickson will return to direct but right now it looks like he’s going to at least stick around as producer.

SINISTER was made on a $3 million budget and has since earned over $77 million at the box office so this shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that they decided to move forward with a sequel.

Not sure how I feel about this. The original film was legitimately creepy and offered some refreshing scares so I have a hard time seeing the sequel being able to repeat that – as many never come close. I’d much rather see Derrickson and Cargill put their heads together for another original idea, but who knows, maybe this sequel will break the mold and offer a rare second installment that can be just as good as the original.

Cross your fingers!

Movie Review: Citadel By: TJ Fowler

             

What do you get when you take a fucked up part of town in England, the Leader of the Night’s Watch from Game of Thrones as a priest, a main character who is afraid to go outside and some crazy kids in hoodies lurking the streets sticking pregnant women with dirty syringes and stealing their babies?  You get a whole lot of what the fucks and a fear of riding in elevators.  Also, the movie is pretty good too despite some flaws.

Movie Review: The Awakening

Director: Nick Murphy

By: TJ Fowler

I recently saw some blurbs around the internet for the British movie called The Awakening and after reading its description I thought it sounded interesting and so I decided I would give it a view and see what was being woke up.

So what did I find with The Awakening?  I found what seemed like a ghost story, wrapped in a psychological analysis story of the main character ,which was also wrapped in a multi-layered story that seemed at times would sink the movie with its effort to be too intellectual.  Amazingly, the film is not sunk by all the twists and turns that it presents to the viewer and I even found that one story angle the movie presented later in the film was really interesting and didn’t see it coming in any form.

Movie Review: The Possession

Movie Review: The Possession

By: TJ Fowler

Movies based off “real events” or actual things sometimes can be sketchy in terms of how truthful the story you see on screen is, i.e. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  The Possession is a movie which is not based on an actual story as it’s more based on the legend of a dybbuk box, an old Jewish Wine box which has a demon imprisoned within.  I’m a paranormal buff so I am familiar with the item the movie is based off of and there is such an item that is floating around out there with stories attached to really make you wonder about such an item.  So how does The Possession translate this urban legend to the big screen?  Do we get some Old Testament vengeance delivered or do we get a big empty wooden box with the Yiddish word, “Schmendrick” engraved on it?  Read on!
