4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely scary and creepy piece of supernatural horror film, 14 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Sinister [DVD] (DVD)
If you enjoyed Insidious, then you will definitely like Sinister. It is extremely scary and a well delivered piece of supernatural horror film. The cinema hall was packed. There were scary expressions on faces. The film shows plenty of terrifying and edge of the seat moments. The contents are graphical. It is about a family, who move in a new house. This house unfolds a haunted past. The house once belonged to a family who were abducted and murdered. One of the members is reported missing. Crime writer Ellison (Ethan Hawke) uses the events as the main material in the latest novel. He put his job before the family. The family lives are at risk. The author gets to the bottom of the matter. This could make or break his career as an author.

Sinister contains a mixture of psychological and horrifying moments. The first hour builds up the plot. A picture emerges of the scale and nature of the murdered family through camera footage in the attic viewed by the author and talking to experts. The images are extremely disturbing and scary. The second hour features a chain of events in the house. This includes ghostly images and creepy noises in the house. These moments keep you on the edge. Does it solve the mystery surrounding the horrific murders? The dark atmosphere and isolated surroundings create a strong impact in the film. The characters are quite well developed. The film gives you an insight of a crime writer and how the career can impact on family life. This adds depth to the film.

The quality of horror films have shown remarkable improvements in terms of ideas. Sinister joins the list. It creates a cinematic experience to enjoy and keep you glued to the screen, as you never know what to expect. It is cleverly directed. The tone is swiftly set, without delays in the opening sequences. I enjoyed Sinister. If you like supernatural horror films, then I would recommend watching Sinister. It is a good example of what a supernatural horror film should entail and profoundly achieve with the audience.
