Sinister : Film Review
Sinister from the producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious. This is a genuine terrifying film that will scare the hell out of you.
Rated cert 15 we watched this film on blu-ray. The film is on for 109 minutes.
The stuff nightmares are made from.
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.
This film is not for the faint hearted with some scary jumpy moments. A must for horror film buffs. Lights out surround sound on for the full effect.
I would give this film 8 out of 10. Good story with a bit of a twist.
