3 TERRIFYING CLIPS FROM SINISTER

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.

From the Press Release
Perhaps the most terrifying human relationship is the one between a serial killer and his target. But what if it starts that way and becomes something…more? From the visionary mind of director Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Surveillance, Hisss) comes the dark fable Chained, coming to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD October 2nd from Anchor Bay Films. With a stellar cast including Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black, “Law and Order: Criminal Intent”), Gina Phillips (Jeepers Creepers, “Ally McBeal”), Conor Leslie (“90210”), and Evan Bird (“The Killing”) with Jake Weber (Dawn of the Dead, “Medium”) and Julia Ormand (My Week With Marilyn, “Mad Men,” The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Chained is an unforgettable ride into the darkness that can reside in the human heart – no matter what your age. The Chained Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD also includes, as a bonus feature, the scene that prompted the MPAA to give the film an NC-17 rating! SRP is $26.98 for the DVD, and $29.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack.

Coming home from a routine trip to the movies, eight-year-old Tim (Bird) and his mother, Sarah (Ormond), are picked up by a psychopathic cab driver named Bob (D’Onofrio). It ends up being their last ride together. Bob murders the young boy’s mother and keeps Tim as his unwilling protégé, making him clean up the mess following each murder he commits. After a couple of aborted escape attempts, Bob chains Tim – now renamed Rabbit – allowing just enough length to move freely within the house. As the years pass, Bob starts instructing Rabbit, teaching him anatomy and human behavior. Now a teenager, Rabbit (Eamon Farren, X: Night of Vengeance) is slowly being pressed by Bob to start his own homicidal spree. Slowly but surely, he must soon choose whether to follow in Bob’s serial killer footsteps or make one final, desperate attempt to break free…

Bonus features on Chained Blu-ray™ and DVD include feature-length audio commentary by writer/director Jennifer Lynch and actor Vincent D’Onofrio; the alternate unrated version of “Mary’s Murder;” and the original theatrical trailer.

JENNIFER LYNCH’S CHAINED COMING TO DVD & BLU-RAY

Jennifer Lynch’s new film CHAINED, starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Julia Ormond, Jake Weber, Eamon Farren, Conor Leslie, and Evan Bird, and recently hit with an NC-17 rating from the masters of censorship, the MPAA, is making it’s way this October to Blu-ray and DVD.

So the Blu-ray/DVD combo release isn’t even going to be the uncut NC-17 version? They’re just including what they cut in bonus features instead of adding it back into the film? That doesn’t make any sense. One of the great things about home media is that you can release stuff UNRATED! Maybe Jennifer Lynch didn’t get that memo. A shame, but I’m still going to be checking it out as it sounds like one incredibly fucked up film.

Writer/Director Scott Derrickson’s (THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) upcoming film SINISTER has been receiving a lot of buzz around the web over the past few months.
