“Sinister” is about a true-crime novelist named Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke), a true crime writer who moves into a new home with his wife, Tracy (Juliet Rylance) and his two children, Ashley (Clare Foley) and Trevor (Michael Hall D’Addario) near the site of a local crime in order to get inspiration for his novel. During an exploration of the house Ellison stumbles across a box with an 8mm camera and a selection of films, which upon viewing exploit gruesome murders. This thrusts area hero into a terrifying mystery as he tries to piece together the meaning behind it all. (imdb.com)
Since the very first trailer came out I thought, “damn! I should watch this movie soon!” i must say, this is a good horror movie! I was scared (because I watched this movie ALONE in the middle of the night on my bedroom, LOL) especially in the first part of the movie when the writer finds out all those creepy movies about the murders he is writing about, also in the last 20 minutes of the movie is scary (no spoiler). The videos that Ellisson discovers are genuinely disturbing, and a bit scary. Good plot, good choice of ‘murderer’ and good idea for the Evil What/Who that possesses the ‘killer’. I actually hadn’t figured out who it was hahaha….good job to the filmmaker. Props also for the music and sound effects in this movie So, if you like horror movies such as Insidious , you will not be disappointed!
