It looks like Bagul is set to return to terrorize another family in SINISTER 2! Blumhouse is in the planning stages to get a sequel rolling, with creators Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill back to script the film. Derrickson won’t be filling the directors’ chair this time around, so expect an announcement on that front as pre-production ramps up.
No word on plot or casting as been revealed.
This marks the third film Blumhouse Productions is franchising, after PARANORMAL ACTIVITY & INSIDIOUS, both which have sequels opening later in the year. Blumhouse also has AREA 51 (hopefully, Oren Peli’s found footage alien-horror has been shelved for years), THE PURGE, MOCKINGBIRD, THE LORDS OF SALEM, PEACHFUZZ, and NOT SAFE FOR WORK scheduled for release this year as well.
Last month, their alien-cum-allegory for abuse and shitty parenting-horror film (read my review on that here) DARK SKIES opened.
