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.

Lights Out

First downfall is no one ever wants to turn on a freaking light. All the suspense happening is in a dark house fully capable of being lit. Second is that while I usually like Ethan Hawk..his drinking and closed off personallity annoyed the hell out of me. The scorpion/snake/dog/ symbols were used so randomly and just had no impact on building the fear. Aside from a few loud thumps..there were no shocking moments save for the lawn mower scene. It was the last 30 minutes that totally ruined the movie with the strupid unscarey kids all putting their fingers to their mouths and saying shhhhhhhh...it had an element of creepiness but that lasted 4 seconds. WHen he burns the film and projector and it shoiws up again in tact is where I was wishing I was home pounding my thumb with a hammer. WASTE OF TIME

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!!!

Sinister: A Haunting Horror Classic

By aerykpierson
Written July 02, 2015
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.
