Lord of Misrule 2


  • Lord of Misrule is a recent horror movie that is currently available to rent or buy.
  • The decision to renew a movie is based on various factors such as viewership numbers, production costs, and more.
  • We discuss the possibility of a sequel to Lord of Misrule.

Fans of British folk horrors might want to check out Lord of Misrule, a chilling new movie from William Brent Bell, the director of Orphan: First Kill. 

The movie tells the story of Rebecca Holland who moves to a countryside village with her family. While here, she learns of a spirit named Gallowgog, who is the main focus of the harvest festival that the villagers hold every year. As the story unfolds, Rebecca learns the dark truth about Gallowgog and the place she is now calling home. 

If you have seen and enjoyed Lord of Misrule, you might be interested in a sequel.

But will there be a Lord of Misrule 2? Here’s what we know.

What is Lord of Misrule about?

Lord of Misrule is another movie about supernatural folklore and dark magic. It hinges around the disappearance of Rebecca’s daughter Grace, who goes missing at the harvest festival.

Rebecca suspects her daughter is being held captive by a village outsider but the truth is far different. What she discovers is something far more terrifying, as you’ll discover in our Ending Explained article which delves into the movie’s story. 

Will there be a Lord of Misrule 2?

At the time of writing, a sequel to Lord of Misrule has not been announced. The decision to move ahead with a sequel will likely depend on Magnolia Pictures, the studio behind the film.

If there is a demand for a sequel from audiences, and if Lord of Misrule 2 is financially viable, then a sequel may be given the green light. 

However, we’re going out on a limb and suggesting Lord of Misrule 2 won’t happen. The first movie ends in an abstract way, with an ending that is open to interpretation. While this suggests a sequel is possible, we don’t think there is a lot of need for a continuation of the story. 

Of course, we could be wrong. So if we do hear news of Lord of Misrule 2, we will update this article with new information.

What could happen in Lord of Misrule 2?

A sequel is unlikely but if it was given the green light, the film would likely revolve around Rebecca and her new relationship to the people of her village. 

Alternatively, a prequel could be made instead of a sequel. This could tell the story of Tobias Bron, a man who, according to the film’s folklore, was the first person to make a deal with the spirit known as Gallowgog. As this happened in 1621, the prequel would be a period piece. 

But what do you think? Do you think a prequel is a good idea? Or do you think there is scope for a sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
