I was lucky enough to check out a press screening for SINISTER a few weeks ago (look for a review coming soon), and though I went in with low expectations, I was absolutely astounded at what I bore witness to. From the poster art one would expect a blood bath, and while there was gore here and there throughout, the main focus of the film was an atmosphere of dread and terror the likes of which haven’t been seen for quite some time in horror cinema. This is definitely a must watch for everyone who has felt horror films have traded terror for gore. While you wait for the October 12th release, we have 3 clips after the break that will only further your desire to see this film. Check ‘em out!
Starring Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, James Ransone, Juliet Rylance, Clare Foley, Michael Hall D’Addario, SINISTER is a frightening new thriller from the producer of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY films and Scott Derrickson, the writer-director of THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE. In the film, Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.
