The demonic character in Sinister reminds me a lot of the Slender Man, maybe not in looks (cause Slender Man has no face) but Bughuul’s definitely in Slender Man territory with the skulky, only seen in the back of photos and in reflections on film reels behavior he exhibits. I feared that maybe this film would take a lot of Slender Man lore and hide it under a different character, but Sinister doesn’t do that at all. In retrospect, maybe someone should’ve pointed the screenwriters towards the Slender Man Mythos, it might’ve helped their script out a little bit . . .
