This movie was very strange indeed. A man finds a bunch of ultra violent home movies in his new home, and watches them despite being disturbed by them. People hanging from trees, being cut up with lawnmowers, being burned alive inside a car and other sick and ultra violent / bloody things are among the movies, which the killer has labeled with "clever" titles, which are in reality stupid and hokey. Even after destroying the movies, they reappear. The movie ends in a truly absurd way and how the murders are connected really makes no sense either. I wouldn't recommend seeing this unless you are drunk, then it would likely be a fantastic movie under that circumstance.

This movie impressed me. A great plot, good dialogue, and Ethan Hawke definitely delivers. The scares came out of nowhere as well, which is always a must in Horror films.
It was a good, genuine, horror movie that I recommend.

It was a very slow build up. Ethan played an ok drunk dad. Here's what I thought was scary: the thunder storm at the movies, the stalker white van parked next to me, the lightening outside & the car driving on the wrong side of the road.

This movie was terrifying. In my opinion the music behind it made it more scary then the actual movie itself but in a good way. It was a little bit gory, thinking about how some of the people died made me cringe. I hate scary movies but I still go to every single one of them. I thought it was better then Insidious. Go!

If you can endure a slightly slow beginning you will not be disappointed. Sinister makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end, and will make the bravest person watch through a peephole in their hand. MUST SEE!!!
