* INeedAFreakingDrink: Ellison hits the bottle pretty hard. It's ambiguous as to if he has a problem with drinking or if the things he's experiencing are just that terrible.

* INeedAFreakingDrink: Ellison hits the bottle pretty hard. It's ambiguous as to if he has a problem with drinking or if the things he's experiencing are just that terrible. It's also part of the reason he keeps brushing off the signs of the supernatural, as he probably thinks the alcohol is making him see things.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Deputy So-and-So is friendly, and polite. And when Ellison confides in him about the creepy things he sees, he doesn't patronize him when giving him reasons that there isn't anything supernatural going on.

* XMeetsY: Due to being set in the rural countryside, the sequel can be described as "''Sinister'' meets ''Franchise/ChildrenOfTheCorn''".

** [[spoiler: The only thing stopping it from being mega-downer in the first film is that Detective So-and-So has just about all the information about Bughuul and the entire mystery, so it's very possible for him to prevent the deaths of any more families.]]

* HateSink: Clint Collins in the second film is a mundane horror in a not-so-mundane setting. He [[DomesticAbuse beat his wife]], Courtney, [[AbusiveParents and his son, Dylan]], all while feeding into the corruption [[spoiler:(which Bughuul exploits)]] of his other son, Zach. Later in the movie, he stuffs some food down Dylan's throat, and when ex-Deputy So and So tries to warn him to [[spoiler:leave the house he'd just moved his family back into, he beats him to a pulp and then boasts about how he's going to "fuck [his] wife". Considering that he's an abuser and Courtney lives in fear of him, [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil it should be pretty clear what this entails]].]]



* ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight

to:

* ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNightThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight: Bughuul is the mythological basis for and a deconstruction of the boogeyman. Whereas the boogeyman is usually said to take away children who've done something bad as punishment, Bughuul [[spoiler:corrupts children into evil deeds (specifically, murdering their entire families) so that he can take them back to his world and devour their souls over time for sustenance.]]

* SoreLoser: The Bughuul does not take it well when a family evades him. Probably why he goes after So-and-So at the ending...

** [[spoiler:His son, Zach, as well. [[LikeFatherLikeSon Must be genetic]].]]



* BigNo: [[spoiler:Zach lets out several of these, culminating in a very long one, after Deputy So-and-So destroys his camera, ruining his film.]]



* BolivianArmyEnding:
[[spoiler:The sequel ends this way, with Bughuul suddenly appearing in front of Deputy So-and-So via a radio that recorded one of Bughuul's murders. Given the implication that Professor Jonas from the first film was killed in the same way and Bughuul demonstrating TouchOfDeath earlier in the film, [[TheHeroDies So-and-So's odds aren't looking too good..]]]]
