Four tips to creating a ‘Sinister’ villain

Curated by

 

Bughuul (Nicholas King) spooks up the place in the ‘Sinister’ movie franchise. The mouthless malevolence Bughuul haunted Sinister, a micro-budget success story that racked up a $48 million box office in 2012, and he returns for more scares in Sinister 2 (in theaters Friday). Like the first movie, strange and disturbing things soon begin to happen.

 

 

  • Co-writer/producer Scott Derrickson, director Ciarán Foy (Citadel) and Hollywood super-producer Jason Blum take USA TODAY through their process of perfecting Bughuul.
  • Creating a franchise character was always in the cards for Sinister writers Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill.
  • Other than giving Bughuul (played by stuntman Nicholas King) a darkly keen fashion sense and greasing up his hair (“Giving him one solid foot in this world,” Derrickson says), they didn’t really tweak the original image that much.
