Horror sequel “Sinister 2” is a very strange movie. Of course, it’s a horror film, so strange, ghostly, and sinister events are expected. Yet, this is a horror film that doesn’t quite know what it is.

You can’t tell if the filmmakers (director Ciarán Foy and screenwriters Scott Derrickson and Austin’s C. Robert Cargill) are deliberately going for a bit of a goofy, throwback feel, but that’s what comes across in this spooky tale. It’s almost like a 1980s movie you’d find on cable, and that might appeal to some horror audiences.
