In horror movies less is always more. A half open door with something behind it is a lot more menacing than seeing what’s actually there.
It’s something that not many modern horror films remember, preferring, as they do, to show so much that we now live in a world where we can see what a human centipede might look like.
But, thankfully, the new teaser for Sinister 2 has seemingly embraced the less is more philosophy, creating a 16 second long teaser (either that, or they haven’t filmed much of it yet).
In it we see glimpses of dead-eyed children standing in a cornfield, what may be a scythe and a very upset woman. That’s it.
And it’s very scary.
