There is a long and distinguished history of scary children in film. From the devil’s progeny Damien, right through to Macaulay Culkin, little people are simply terrifying. It’s because kids are supposed to be angelic little innocents, so when we see them wielding a bloody kitchen knife (or causing grievous bodily harm to Joe Pesci) it’s all the more shocking.
The people behind the Sinister and Insidious films know this and use it to great effect. The new full trailer for Sinister 2 has plenty of the little blighters running about and murdering their entire families, the scamps.
Also making a jumpy appearance is Bagul, who looks like he could use a couple of weeks in Tenerife.
His complexion is terrible.
