I've read alot of reviews for this movie, talking about the scares throughout, and as I did jump a few times, the scares are more of the surprise scares, noises mostly, and to be honest, most of them occur within about 10 minutes of each other. I did like the idea of the movie, with the films in the attic of previous murders and whats in them films, the acting was par, nothing really over the top, but it wasnt bad either. There are parts of this movie that dont make sense to me, especially with the son, as when you realise what the movie deals with, it really had nothing to do with why the son acting the way he did in a few of the scenes. They could have also done with a little less of the argueing between husband and wife throughout the movie, there didnt need to be that much of it just to make the film longer .. or whatever purpose it was suppose to serve. As I did like the originality of the story, and a few of the ideas in it, I'd give this 2 1/2 stars out of 4 ... enjoy :)

Very good movie, not one of those short normal horror flicks where everyone dies and it just ends. Really freaky movie and I wouldn't suggest sleeping alone after watching it.
Id rate it 8/10! I would see it again.

Sinister is one of those movies that make you wonder "how can somebody come up with such disturbing ways to kill somebody?" in almost a Saw kind of way. It is less of a gore-fest than Saw would be, and more of a jumpy-horror movie like I was hoping for. I am a horror movie fan and this was definitely a good watch. I've read some harsh comments about the acting, but I remember being impressed by the acting when watching this movie, of course not on the kids' part as much (but hey- they're kids).
The ending kind of irritated me I guess because it seemed like an easy way out, but I guess it was reasonable and the film would've been too long if they didn't end it in that sort of manner. Either way I still recommend you go see it in theaters because everybody knows horror movies are scarier in theaters, and it's a good watch! Enjoy. PS Buy nachos they're the bomb.

Me and my hubby went to see this movie, it took a little while to get to the dramatic and scary parts but when it did O.M.G. i couldn't stop covering my eyes!! It was a great movie, the theatre was packed and even though most of the men wont admit it, they were jumping in thier seats as much as the ladies ; ) . I definantly recommend this movie especially being this close to halloween it's a must see!

If its true u loose yrs of life after a sudden scare then I'm 10 yrs older now, lol. My wife and I love horror films and not the cheesy, unrealistic sort either. We give most Horror flicks a chance but in the end we usually go a long time before finding the next freak show that makes us sleep with the light on - Lets face it, scary is demonology / religious dark sides, true witching, deep sleep mind games, ancient world wide urban legends of shifty ghouls and pagan deity's! In the end its always up to the movie makers,actors,camera angles,cinematography,lighting, location etc to make it believable. This is no exorcist or home movie style P-Activity, but its still believable. The plot has good momentum with well placed "surprises" as it maintains its very dark and twisted setting. The best parts are when the camera shot darkens, the sound fades to nothing as you struggle to hear and see, audience is right on the edge of suspense, then...HELLO!! A great & unpredictable movie, go see it!
