The warning has been issued. It’s time for you to get ready for an all-new haunting chapter of “Sinister“!

The horror movie, which previously had Ethan Hawke as its male lead in 2012, is returning with a sequel this year. The first film is claimed to be one of the most successful horror movies as it earned more than $48 million, despite being produced on a $3 million budget. It surprised the critics and fans for its combination of creepiness using the footage found in the haunted house’s attic.

The sequel is being directed by Ciaran Foy (“Citadel”) based on a script written by C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson (Marvel‘s “Doctor Strange“), who directed the 1st “Sinister” movie.

“Sinister 2” stars Shannyn Sossamon as the female lead while James Ransone returns to reprise his role as the young deputy who assisted Ethan Hawke’s character in the first film.
