Sinister, a 2012 film by Blumhouse Productions, was an immediate hit that generated a sequel, but it never earned a third episode; here’s why.
Filmmaker Scott Derrickson’s otherworldly horror picture Sinister premiered in theatres in 2012 and became an instant smash with critics and audiences alike.
Following the success of the first film, Blumhouse Productions went on to produce a sequel, which was released in the summer of 2015. Despite being successful in other franchises like as The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, and Insidious, Sinister 2 did not receive the attention that the studio had hoped it would.
The films’ concept hinted to a hopeful future in which they may become a franchise on par with the other classics. Despite the passage of five years, the third Sinister film has yet to be released.
During the first film, true crime novelist Ellison Oswalt, who was played by Ethan Hawke, and his family were in the process of moving into a new house. After discovering a package of Super 8 mm film reels labelled “home movies,” he investigates and discovers a horrifying string of killings perpetrated by youngsters on the property.
In order to find out more about the symbols, Ellison brings the reels to a specialist in esoteric symbols, who discovers that they are linked to an old boogie-man by the name of Bughuul.
Bughuul is the main antagonist of the two flicks, and he appears in each of them. He utilises his superhuman abilities to influence youngsters into killing their family while simultaneously filming the entire event on a Super 8 camera.
Bughuul is nearly always successful in his endeavours, thanks to the assistance of a gang of ghost youngsters that assist him. However, when the camera is damaged in Sinister 2, he fails miserably. If there is no camera there, he may not be able to carry on his insidious pattern of behaviour.
Bughuul jumps out of the screen in the last seconds of the sequel, causing the audience to jump. He technically has the ability to return at any time.

Sinister 3 Not Coming?
From 2018 until the present, there has been no word on whether or not Bughuul would make an appearance on screen. In the same year, Jason Blum hinted at the possibility of an Insidious-Sinister crossover in the works. He has subsequently shelved the project, although he acknowledges that he was involved in its development. It’s possible that the Sinister world will never see another standalone picture.
While the first film was a hit and made a lot of money and gained a lot of fame, the sequel was a flop and didn’t do much to inspire audiences. Sinister 2 leaned far too heavily on jump scares and shock value, and as a result, provided little in the way of reward.
Characters that were undeveloped and one-dimensional were present. The expectations established by Blumhouse’s tremendously successful films that came out around the same time period were especially high, and the critics were particularly scathing. Given how disastrous the sequel turned out to be, it was ultimately decided that a sequel would not be made.
Bughuul is not finished with his films and will make a cameo appearance in another one at some time in the future, despite the loss of the potential of a third picture. Up until that point, Sinister will continue to be an immensely terrifying and unsettling supernatural picture that fans will return to again and over again.
Here is the fan Made trailer for Sinister 3 but this time the third instalment is not coming so stay tuned with us on our website trendingnewsbuzz.com to read the latest articles.
