With Sinister 2 opening this weekend, now is as good a time to remember that not all horror movie sequels suck, and we thought we'd that this opportunity to count down ten of our all time favorite follow ups.
The summer season is drawing (too quickly) to a close. There’ve been some highlights and definite lowlights. And as we get toward the end, the latter come much more into play. It’s not a totally lost week, but there’s less and less to get excited about in the theaters. We’ve got Hitman Agent 47 and Sinister 2 and American Ultra.

Uncharted is premiering in a pretty wide-open June that year. Right now, it's sandwiched between two animated films, Sausage Party on the 3rd and Finding Dory from Pixar on the 17th.

Initially, it seemed a no-brainer that C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson would reunite for Sinister 2, having written the first film together with the latter directing. However, Blumhouse is going in another direction, bringing in Ciarán Foy. But don't feel bad for Derrickson, he's all for the new hire.
