Sinister was a very good movie to me as I was watching it. There was a few times I had to look away because the very disturbing scenes to me. When I got home all I could think about was these few scenes that played over and over and over throughout the movie and it really bothered me. Some of the clips you watch seem almost too real and I couldn't help but be bothered and disturbed by it.

I went into this movie hearing some pretty good things about it, and I wasn't disappointed. I'll admit a lot of its scares were jump scares, but the movie does a good job of setting up the proper atmosphere to make you feel suspense and dread. I'd especially recommend this to people who like horror films, but haven't seen the trailers for this one; a lot is, sadly, given away in the trailers, and yet I still managed to get creeped out by it. So if you haven't seen them, you'll get scared by it all the more.

If you're at all a fan of horror movies, you'll be bored by this one.
All the scary moments are either already in the trailer or in one of the short super 8 film clips Ethan Hawke's character finds. (I will, however, give mad props for the lawnmower scene. That was pretty good) However, the rest of the movie pans out ultra predictably. Creepy kids? Check. Loud noises? Check. Unshakeable evil? Check. We saw the "twist" coming a mile away. I started fighting sleep the last 20 minutes of the movie. The ending was rather anticlimatic.
It has a lot of potential (Again, the lawnmower scene and super 8 films were unsettling) but it just doesn't live up to the hype. Horror movie buffs will be frightfully bored, but some teenage girls in our theater seemed to enjoy it. So, if you're a teenager, go see this movie. You might be able to scare your friends. Otherwise, save yourself the money.

Being a fan of true horror films, I absolutely enjoyed this film! I heard more screams in the audience at this movie than I have ever heard in a slasher movie. Slasher is not horror - scare me -that's horror! I haven't jumped in my seat like that since I saw Birds on the big screen.
