Sinister is a new supernatural horror thriller from the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, and the director of The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who moves into a new house with his family (what you'd expect from any horror film really). Upon moving in he discovers a box full of home movies from the family who lived in the house before him. From these films he finds the horrific fate of the previous homeowners in turn creating a chain of events that puts his own family face to face with the supernatural entity that caused the demise of the previous homeowners.
I quite enjoyed Insidious, The Paranormal Activity franchise has its moments, and The Exorcism Of Emily Rose is the last horror film that has truly scared me. Knowing who's behind this film has me looking forward to seeing what this movie has to offer. Check out the trailer after the cut.
I'm hoping that this pagan deity, Bagul, becomes a popular horror figure. He looks like he would make for a great Halloween costume. What do you all think? Will this movie stand with other great horror films like The Exorcist, or just be another throwaway flick that doesn't scare anybody, or will it reside somewhere in the middle?
