5.0 out of 5 stars Well executed horror, 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sinister [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
While this film uses many of the usual horror staples, it executes them with such skill that everything is bestowed a new terror. The main character is, as in all such films, prone to unwise action, but his motives are well presented, and in fact all the characters, for their limited interactions, feel refreshingly intelligent.

This was my first horror movie in full HD, and I was blown away by the video quality. Even with its many dark scenes, the picture is beautiful and crisp (with the exception of a few projector sequences which are left intentionally grainy). Surround sound definitely enhances the scare factor, and the film's eerie soundtrack can be just as unsettling as the disturbing footage Ellison finds in his attic.

If you're going to watch one "haunted house" movie, let it be this one.
