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!!!

It's Better if you didn't see the Trailer.

This movie would have been tons better if I hadn't seen the trailer before I sat down in the theater. What little 'surprise' the movie had left was ruined by the plot being so damn transparent. Save this for a rental/download/etc. It's not worth the theater time unless you just had free tickets like I did.

Sinister: A Haunting Horror Classic

The best part of the movie is the films. Just when I was convinced that found footage movies were tired and needed to be retired along comes a movie that completely refreshed the trope. And because the found footage is old 8 mm reels it has a distorted look and feel to it, adding to the film’s horror. The films are more than just a plot device, they are a character in and of themselves. They are presented to Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke), like a dismembered mouse left by the family cat. Difference being that the cat’s offering is out of love. The films are something far more sinister. A self-serving delivery of evil. The films are grotesque echoes of things past, and things to come. Halloween is the time for spine-chilling terror and Sinister is a perfect expression for the season.

Sinister could have been better...

It wasn't nearly as scary as I hoped it would be from the trailers. They relied on a few standard shock moments to scare you, but nothing really unique and new. It was slightly better than Paranormal 4, but just barely.
