It was really nice to see Ethan Hawke again, even if this role portrays him as a family man who doesn't appear to give a rats ***about the safety of his family. Go see it!

This movie seemed kinda campy to me when I first saw the trailers, maybe thiking in the back of my mind it was going to be yet another Blair Witch/Paranormal Activity re-hash; but I was pleasantly surprised. It had the usual plot points and the annoying, everything is your fault wife, but it was all put together in an original manner with some disturbing imagery without the typical horror porn associated with the "SAW-People". I recommend going to see this movie in the theaters, made me jump 3 times, plus the surround sound of the theater lets you hear all the little bumps and slams that you just wont get at home. Not an excellent horror movie, nothing even comes close these days, but good and enjoyable.

First of all it was Thriller not Horror. Their wasn't anything scary about it. The only people who got scared from this movie in the theaters were the ladies. Typical chasing shadows ect...
If you watch good horror movies and want to see a good horror movie don't waste time seeing this. The only thing scary about this movie was the Creep faced guy. You cant expect much from the people who made paranormal activity.

Go if your 11 years old and want the bagubee's scared out of you, for adults, it was kinda on the PG-13 side. I agree with the person who said it was too dark to see anything; there should have been more showing of the actuall killings. You want to scare me then make Bagool a little more scary!! The writer should be coated in honey and thrown in with 20 hungry baby bears to be licked-tickled into a coma!! (Don't ask what that means-I don't know) Other than that, I was a little scared but not to the point where I couldn't turn out the light. I slept very soundly!!

I'm not one to overreact or quiver at just any horror movie, but Sinister was bone-chilling. Very scary, but in an exceptionally well-done style that didn't go for cheap jumps or rehashed cliches. It was masterfully crafted and expertly delivered from start to finish. Most horror films are disappointing at the end when the object of suspense and terror is revealed, but this one goes hard through the last frame, and as a result is one of the scariest horror movies I've seen in a decade. This is hands-down a MUST GO!
