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.

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!

I have been watching horror/suspense movies since I was 11 years old. I have seen almost every B horror movie from the 80s and most of the "classic" horror movies. I am usually not impressed by more recent genre of horror movies as they fail to correctly build suspense, the soundtrack ruins the moment, or obvious attempts to shock the audience.
However, this movie much like Insidious was in excellent form. It managed to perfectly build the moment and hit you when you least expected it. The soundtrack (unlike most movies which actually damage the potential fear factor) was amazing. It was a mix of sinister (pun intended) and eerie sound combinations that really put chills down my spine.
Acting was superb, no cheesy reactions or unrealistic responses from characters that can turn a good horror into a hilarious B movie. Anyone who is a fan of Insidious, or enjoys being thoroughly traumatized by a good scare, this is definitely a must see movie.
