Two friends and I (all three horror movie mavens) went to Sinister last night. We have seen so many horror movies that we thought nothing of going to see another except for pure enjoyment. We had no idea what we were in for. What we got was probably one of the most DISTURBING movie experiences of our lives. Usually, after a movie we will sit and chat about the movie - the good, the bad, the scary, the things that could have been done better. Not last night. Instead, we walked to the parking garage and stared at each other and the only word that came out was, "Disturbing." Then we said goodbye and walked away silently. I have never been so rattled after a horror movie that I actually check my surroundings or my car, but last night I was doing it non stop all the way home.
This was what a horror movie should be on all levels. If you like horror, go see this. You may never want to see another horror movie again though.

This movie was like a candy necklace - only with demons in place of the candy. It was like demonic bits of gruesome and interesting strung together with cheap weakness. The family films that the protagonist views near the beginning of the film are absolutely awful and very hard to watch, but also very interesting. The home videos start you on the path of wondering how this movie is going to turn out. Next in line are some throw away scenes. Then back to the heart of the story, the investigation, the beginnings of a pattern. Next - predictable fluff. That's basically the formula for the movie. It seems to have started out very high-brow and well intentioned, and the core story is truly fascinating. But somewhere along the process of actually producing the movie, the creators seem to have lost their endurance. The result is a film that is not scary at all, but is instead a strange collage of both promise and awkwardness. You may just want to skip this one.

I liked this movie. Kept my interest the entire time made me jump at times. This one will be added to my movie collection when it comes out on DVD.
