Mr. Boogie Could Return In Possible ‘Sinister’ Sequel

Sinister-01

Want to see Mr. Boogie haunting another family?

SciFiNow has the scoop on a potential Sinister sequel, the follow-up to last year’s uber successful horror film directed by The Exorcism of Emily Rose‘s Scott Derrickson.

I certainly want to write the script and be involved with it as the producer – I would possibly direct the next one, we’ll see,” Derrickson told the site.

But I don’t see myself just handing the franchise over to just anybody and letting it go,” adds the director referencing what Lionsgate did with Saw. “If it goes on – then maybe – but I want to see it start its process on the right foot at least, and always have some say and have some involvement in it.

Sinister‘s co-writer, novelist C Robert Cargill added, “Before we finished the movie Scott and I had a discussion about the things we don’t want to do, and spitballed just a couple of things that we would like to do given the opportunity, but it’s all still theoretical stages – ‘Oh, hey, wouldn’t that be cool’ – everyone’s still waiting to see on the lifecycle of the movie how everything pans out before everybody jumps up and says, ‘Yes! We must have a second one!’

Sinister grossed over $62 million off a $3 million budget.

    3 Million ? Wow, they did a great job. I did like the movie until the point where (SPOILER) the “Zombie kids” turned up. They were a bit too “mundane” in their design for my taste. The movie was still entertaining, but lost its demonic aura.

    • EvilHead1981

      The (SPOILERS) ghost kids were what killed the movie to me. It went from a really good horror thriller(with the exception of that one cop guy who was also the fan, because I can’t get over how horrible his acting was) to near “SyFy Channel original movie” level. It just went from great to tacky REALLY really quickly.

    Sinister was such a disappointment. It was the one horror event of 2012 I looked forward to and all I was left with was $14.50 wasted and a bad taste in my mouth. A sequel? Come on….

    I loved SINISTER and would’t mind another entry if done well.

  • DarrelDreadful

    What I got from that is we’ll be getting the next one in probably two years or so lol I loved Sinister and thought it put a great spin on the Boogeyman. After I seen the movie I wondered if they’d go prequel or sequel, hoping the latter, so this is cool. But they better have a superb script because we already know the big twist and I dont want to see the same movie just with different actors in another location. I would love to see a video (SPOILER) of Ashley actually chopping up the rest of her family. The biggest problem I had with Sinister is that the ending lacked the emotional impact it was going for, and to me its because everything ended so quickly and we didnt see much aftermath even though that drawing was really disturbing. And another thing, the soundtrack REALLY made a difference, please use similar material lol the music that played while the family was chained up in the car had me ready to crawl out of my skin, it was so weird.

      “…the music that played while the family was chained up in the car had me ready to crawl out of my skin, it was so weird.”

      Same here! I have never been that uneasy watching a movie in my life. I don’t know what it was about it that made it so scary. That was the first time in my adult life that I ever felt the need to look away from the screen because I felt so freaked out. The music in this film really did pack a punch and they really need to use similar material for the sequel.

    There was some OK scenes in this movie but overall it really sucked. Ending was terrible, movie was boring.

  • Taboo

    I wanted to like this but it was just so borrrring!

    • Meshugganaut

      This should have been an hour and 30mins movie,tops. Way too long for what was in it.

  • Zombie-Killa

    Can’t wait for the sequel, and yes, more Mr. Boogie!

    The Lawnmower video is STILL stuck in my mind. The killer’s just quietly pushing the lawnmower across the front yard, and then BAM! The lawnmower plows right over someone’s face! Ugh, now that’s sick!!!!

    • BelaManiac

      Damn, that part got me good. So creepy

  • flesheater24

    SICKKKK this movie was pretty fuckin creepy not going to lie. I liked mr.boogie. And the end was sick too. And I loved that it didn’t shy away from the disturbing scenes.

  • Ress EZ

    Please do so! I really liked the movie and to me Bughuul (Mr. Boogie) was one of the recent villain who deserved to be labeled as icon. And what makes it even more deserving is the fact how hard to find a picture of him when I google for him. It’s like the whole mythology of him in the movie is based in real life. I agree with Zombie-Killa. The lawnmower video was very impactful. Up until today I still have chills. Also the car burning video. Furthermore, DarrelDreadful has a point there. Show the video of the Ethan Hawke’s character’s death and keep the soundtrack. Felt like it came straight from the mythology too!

    I really don’t get all the hate for Sinister! The critics loved it and so did I! Ii’s not often that a film scares you, but that ending sent shivers down my spine. It had a tremendous atmosphere and is really quite unforgettable. It’s one of the best haunted house films out there! Long live Sinister!!

  • willyd

    I loved the fuck outta this movie, however I really don’t see the need to have a sequel. The creative team behind this movie should focus more on another original project.

  • Meshugganaut

    I can see why people like this movie so much and I wanted to like it just as much, but for me it just fell short on what it tried to deliver. The rolls of video footage that Ethan Hawke watches where the best parts of the film that had the unsettling, disturbing factor to them, and that’s what was missing from the rest of the movie. It was way too long, and it relied on the over-used jump-scares to try and carry it. The soundtrack is more disturbing than the actual film.
    Baghuul is a great idea for a horror villain, but not used very well. I really wanted to like this film, but couldn’t

    *SPOILER-ISH*

    The end scene when Baghuul jumps in front of the camera was the biggest mistake they could have done. It takes you out of the film completely, and I couldn’t take him seriously after that, and all it says is; FRANCHISE.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I love this movie to death. The music is what made this a truly scary film. I don’t know how they could make a sequel creepier, but I’m intrigued.

  • ClasslessKing

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel, but I really won’t hold it in as high hopes as I did the original. The trailer truly spooked the hell out of me, but like other commenters have mentioned, the ending really left a bad taste in your mouth. Just seemed a tad bit rushed and hokey. I called it about halfway in, to be honest. If they can continue to expand a little bit upon the Bughuul mythos, that would be fantastic. But I’d really like to see it kept in the lower-budget kind of spectrum. Once the CGI gets insane, it’s too far gone. Glad to hear the director wants to keep a firm hold on his franchise, instead of playing pass the buck.

    I also agree with the commenter that talked about the lawnmower video, it was truly frightening. The soundtrack definitely propelled that moment deep into my memory.
