Fucking terrifying

"The symbol is associated with a Pagan deity named Baghuul... He consumes the souls of the human children."

Let's not mince words here: Sinister scared the fucking shit out of me, and that is not an accolade I hand out lightly. It's rare to stumble upon a truly scary movie in this day and age; the horror genre has grown stale of late, with filmmakers constantly wasting our time with... read more

Terrifying psychological horror.

Typically Jason Blum, the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious, a more creative horror film, takes the part of producing his latest horror film Sinister. Even before you get into the film, Sinister begins like your traditional Paranormal Activity-like introduction where in a calm and clear environment, an innocent family are moving into a new home unaware that there are dangers ahead and ... read more

"Don't worry, Daddy. I'll make you famous again."

I saw this with a friend at a movie marathon going on at our local theatre. In total there were five films: two comedies (Here Comes the Boom and Pitch Perfect) and three horrors. Sinister was the last film of the night and I watched it with cautious optimism because the two other horror films that played before were Paranormal Activ... read more

Found footage helps a true-crime novelist realize how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity.

The 50 Greatest Horror Movies of the 21st Century (50 movies items)

"Scott Derrickson’s Sinister isn’t a period piece, but by directing its attention backward it brackets its chosen tech-horror particulars as products of a bygone era—in this case considerably further back than the period of tube TVs and quarter-inch tapes to which this subgenre of horror so often belongs. Much like Ringu, Sinister concerns a cursed film whose audience dies after exposure to it, but here the curse is disseminated not by clunky videotape, but by a box of 8mm films. The projec"

" A quite atmospheric and tense movie. Throughout it all, you're never really sure exactly what is going on. But it's very well executed, and it is very gripping.  "

"Due for rewatch"


johanlefourbe posted a review 1 year, 10 months ago

An average movie

“To be honest, I really had no idea what this movie was about but since it seemed to be a decent horror flick, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, the beginning was quite promising. Indeed, Ethan Hawke is a solid actor and I loved the idea of this washed-up writer going to a new city hoping to finally write his next best-seller about a local gruesome crime. Unfortunately, the whole thing started to fall down when he found those Super-8 films. I mean, it was pretty neat that he found one but so many of them? I wish he actually found just the one dealing with the crime he was investigating and that they would focus just on this murder case but, instead, they went  for something way too convoluted for my taste. Indeed, even though you might expect the main character to d” read more
