The low-budget horror sequel has flopped on its first weekend in cinemas, following terrible reviews.
On a typically quiet late-summer weekend dominated by holdovers, Sinister 2 has dragged itself to third place with a disappointing $10.6million opening in America.
Sinister 2, starring James Ransone, has flopped
Expected to earn between $15-18million, the Blumhouse horror sequel debuted well below all three Insidious films, as well as the first Sinister movie, which took $18m on the weekend of October 12-14, 2012.

As the ghoul from the 2012 horror hit stalks a new family, this sequel's sharply well-crafted set-up leaves the hackneyed conclusion feeling very disappointing. Up until the trite horror finale, the film is a terrific mix of complex characters and twisted relationships, with a palpable sense of underlying menace. But instead of grappling with the ramifications of the human drama, the screenwriters opt for simplistic violence instead.
The dorky deputy (James Ransone) from the first film has left the force but is still determined to stop the horror from happening again. Then he arrives at the "infected" farmhouse and finds single mother Courtney (Shannyn Sossamon) hiding out there with her feuding pre-teen sons Dylan and Zach (played by real-life siblings Robert Daniel and Dartanian Sloan). And her abusive husband Clint (Lea Coco) wants custody. But the boys have already been contacted by the creepy gang of ghost kids who have horrifically murdered their families and documented this in home movies that they show to Dylan each night. To appease the boogeyman, Dylan needs to do the same, and if he can't, they might be able to use Zach.
Frankly, Clint is a much scarier monster than the sinister spirit lurking in seemingly every dark corner in this movie. And Zach has learned from his dad how to be a seriously cruel bully. Director Ciaran Foy generates intensity in both the real-world and supernatural elements of this story, inventively creating visually stylish freak-out moments that have genuine peril attached. In this situation, the actors create strikingly authentic characters, from Ransone's likeably goofy deputy to Sossamon's steely, tenacious mother hen. And the Sloan brothers add a superb sense of sibling tension, mingling anger and frustration with real emotion. So when things begin to snap between all of them, the film becomes genuinely heart-stopping. Then the ghosts take over and it's not quite so thrilling.

Courtney Collins and her twin sons Dylan and Zach have moved into a large country house ready for a fresh start, unwittingly facing what could be their end. The house is host to a demonic force; it's a site where several whole families have been brutally murdered by their possessed children, before said children go missing. The face behind the horror is the soul-eating pagan deity Bughuul, who first begins to prey on the children as they sleepwalk. Meanwhile, the town's former deputy James Ransone is concerned for the new family after the deaths of the Oswalts, recorded as the other murders had been on Super 8 reels, and seeks answers from a priest who ensures him that there is no way to ultimately stop the evil. He's determined to end this loop of horror, however, and takes it upon himself to warn the Collinses and defend them from the wrath of Bughuul.

He doesn't stop, no matter how injured Victoria gets or how many people she encounters get killed... until the end, when one of cinema's most absurd twist endings of all time gets sprung on you.

How do you mix a 1400s tale of jousting and swordplay with a load of rock music? Very carefully. It all starts as a crowd chants the opening monologue to "We Will Rock You" at the lists of a small jousting tournament, while our squire hero Will (Heath Ledger) finds that his master, a knight on the verge of winning the tourney, has just died. In a fit of passion, he straps on his master's armor and rides into the arena, winning the tournament for he and his two co-squire friends (Mark Addy and Alan Tudyk). Thrilled with the victory, Will opts not to take the money and split, but instead assumes the identity of a phony knight, rockin' and joustin' his way across France en route to "The World Championships" of jousting in London.
