“Sinister”, which starred Ethan Hawke, earend $77 million worldwide…on a budget of just $3 million. And with fairly strong reviews, no surprise that a sequel is coming. Director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill will reunite (the pair are also reteaming for “Deus Ex; Human  Revolution”). As for Blumhouse Productions, between this, the upcoming “Insidious” sequel and the little franchise “Paranormal Activity”, they appeared to have found their niche.
