Scariest movie I have seen in a long time if not ever.

I love horror movies and see them all the time and Sinister is AMAZING as far as horror films go. It made me jump so many times and it never got stupid like so many other scary movies do. Even the ending was great. If you love scary movies like me, I highly suggest going to see this one.

Surprisingly Sinister

By citrouille

While Sinister doesn't do much in the innovation department and it's no Oscar hopeful, it certainly does its best to do what it's supposed to do: horrify. There are several typical scream-worthy moments which are mostly products of loud noises and the like, but it's the story and overarching mood of the film are inherently creepy and unsettling. The twists are pretty solid, as is Ethan Hawke's performance, and in true horror style, the score does a lot of the work to establish the sinisterness of the film. Personally, I see horror films to be scared and Sinister does this more effectively than anything of the same calibre that I've seen recently. It's not genre-defining, nor terrifying, but it didn't try too hard and it definitely had my skin crawling. If you're a fan of horror and looking for something satisfyingly scary and genuinely entertaining, I'd recommend Sinister.

Leave Before The Silly Finale

By Screenphiles

It's a pity that the finish of "Sinister" virtually undoes all the good that came before because the movie is genuinely well-acted, and has its moments of creepiness. Note to upcoming directors: Not every ending needs to have a shock or twist. If "Sinister" were less concerned with implausible scares–when your movie is about a demon that dines on the souls of children, that's saying something–then it would have been a much stronger film.

Movie had a perfect balance beween horror and storyline.Absent from most recent horror movies.Usually 95% would be spent on Gore and 5% story building.

Good Suspense

By texasturkey
Written October 15, 2012
It's a graphic story line without terrible gore. My wife is the real horror fan, and she loved this movie. I liked the suspense, and thought it was well played. Ethan Hawke was very believable and for the first time in his career not a condescending *****. The rest of the cast is good too, and this movie lacked in building their characters up. It held on to obvious truths way too long and was easily predictable. Still one of the better scary movies I've seen in a long time. One last prediction... the sequel will be lame as a college professor dives into the hidden truth behind the scary figure.
