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.

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.

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!!!

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.
