Product Description

Desperately in need of a best seller to revive his struggling career, true crime writer Ellison (Ethan Hawke), moves his family to the scene of his most recent story; the unsolved, gruesome murder of a loving, happy suburban family.

Shunned by the local community and strained by his obligations to his family, the discovery of a batch of home movies in the attic offers Ellison shocking proof to the crime he is investigating and the terrifying realisation that his investigation may be putting his family in mortal danger.

As a life long horror fan I am always searching for something that creeps me out. I am not into gratuitous blood and gore or over the top violence but really enjoy a genuinely creepy film.
I received two films for my recent birthday, this one and 'The Cabin In The Woods' which I watched first and thought was a load of tosh! After being disappointed with the first film, I put 'Sinister' in the player with an open mind, not expecting too much. This is probably the best way to view a film as hype usually leads to disappointment.
I have found that since starting a family I am not to comfortable with films involving children being harmed. My partner feels the same and bailed out after about 20 minutes, but I stuck with it and it turned out to be a really good and genuinely scary story, well acted all round and very well shot.
I wont go further into the plot but if you like films such as 'Stir of Echoes', 'Dead End', 'Session 9', 'Insidious', Paranormal Activity', 'Case 39' to name a few of my favorites then give this one a go. I will defiantly be keeping it for the collection, unlike 'Cabin in the Woods' which is heading for the charity shop!

Finally a horror film that packs a punch and delivers on the hype.

Sinister is a very unsettling, disturbing and scary film.

From the very opening shot you know this film is going to be a ride. I found certain sequences in the movie extremely disturbing and some images were burned onto my subconscious memory long after the film had finished. This is a true horror film in the sense that there are a few jump scares but it does not rely on them which is refreshing and it is not a total gore-fest. It balances the two very well and delivers a very tense atmosphere with some harrowing images.

Ethan Hawke is good, he carries the film confidently as he delivers a very convincing performance. I happily watched him for the entire duration of the film and didn't find myself taken out of the film due to bad acting, which is rare in horror films nowadays.

The Blu Ray is good. Sharp images and some great moments for the surround sound. Not much to add.

This film successfully mixes the POV "Found Footage" style horror with the traditional narrative. Fans of the found footage genre will enjoy this but more importantly those who aren't fans of the genre might find this style works better for them as it blends both styles effectively.

I regard myself as a very hardened horror viewer and I am not easily scared...
When I got home after the cinema, I was spooked. I found myself closing my blinds and turning on all the lights.

Fresh horror, not exactly breaking new ground but it's a welcome change.
Not a particularly pleasant viewing, Sinister accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

Good, solid horror film.

Sinister is a well written and acted film from start to finish, which does not go for gross-out horror but good old build ups of suspense and scares, crafting an almost dark perpetual, yep - 'sinister' atmosphere throughout. Add some very creepy sound effects and music, and what you have is one of the best 'scare' movies for sometime. If you are watching on your own late at night be ready for a very sinister investigation into some very gruesome murders and be prepared for some very nerve-shredding scares throughout!

Sinister tells the story of a crime writer who moves his family into a house that turns out to be the scene of a brutal murder of the previous family. The locals including the sherriff don't want them there and it soon becomes clear that there is something very wrong with the house and an evil sinister prescence is lurking. A slow but tense and creepy build up, excellent performances especially from Ethan Hawke in the lead role builds up into a genuinely terrifying film and an instant horror classic.

'ellison' and his family have a new home.
he is seeking inspiration for his new book.
early on he comes across a box in the attic which contains several
reels of home-movies and a projector,
the films show graphic images of a series of killings in seperate
locations including at the house they now call home, 'ellison' trys to
find a link between them.
with things that go bump in the night and images designed to startle
along with much in the way of tension.............the film will allmost
certainly hold your attention,---if yer still breathing that is.
better than many films of this type i've seen in recent times.

Ethan Hawke holds his nerve as he uncovers a tale of murder, mystery and madness inducing terror.
The tension doesn't get to build as it grabs you by the throat from scene one and holds on until you hit the pause button to take a break.
If the family and their own breakdown had been elaborated upon I would have given the extra star and the movie could have supported an extra ten minutes to explore this, but Hawke holds us glued to the screen, dragging us along where common sense tells us otherwise.
Put the kids to bed, tuck them in very tight and watch Sinister alone in the dark. If alone you really are.
