Ciaran Foy’s Sinister 2, the follow up to Scott Derickson and C. Robert Cargill’s supernatural terror tale of 2012, is arguably one of the sequels that garnered the most buzz in 2015.

Stung, the debut feature film from Benni Diez and screenwriter Adam Aresty, impressed audiences at this year’s Frightfest and sports one of our favourite posters of 2015.
