What You Need To Know:
SINISTER 2 is a rather uninteresting, derivative horror movie. As in other movies about demonic spirits, the evil spirit preys on children. His foot soldiers are five ghost children, who helped him murder their own families. The ghost children entice one of the mother’s sons. SINISTER 2 has a very strong occult worldview. The movie is filled with horrific violence, occult scares and strong foul language. There’s no catharsis in SINISTER 2, and its depiction of bloodthirsty children and the supernatural is abhorrent.

The detective must save the woman and her sons from both the husband and the demon.
