Sinister tells the tale of a true crime writer, Ellison Oswalth (Ethan Hawke), researching a series of seemingly unrelated serial murders that have spanned decades.

I’ve read that The Last Exorcism Part 2 has abandoned the found footage, documentary stylings of the first film for a more traditional approach. The first film was a decent FF supernatural entry so I will be watching the sequel. Who knows it might even be good. If your into demonic possession films or just interested in the subject, The Last Exorcism Part 2 will be hitting theaters in March of this year. Check it out at IMDb.
