Sinister

Fragland

  • Excerpt: It’s all “found footage” movies in the horror genre it seems ever since Paranormal Activity succeeded in becoming a mega-success. At least, that’s how it appears. The latest project in this subgenre? Sinister, by the producers of Insidious and… Paranormal Activity! And still.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: With a strong lead performance by Ethan Hawke, 'Sinister' is a frightfully well-executed horror movie with several shocks and a spooky atmosphere. From director Scott Derrickson, the film is a conventional, standard affair, but he makes it work as a fun and wholly satisfying piece of entertainment.

Sinister (2012)

  • Conclusion: Sinister is one of the more consistently moody horror films in recent memory, and that helps it overcome some of its more hackneyed plot devices. Hawke and the supporting cast are all quite good, and the film quickly establishes and then builds on a sense of impending doom.

  • Excerpt: Two trendlets of the mid-2000s—the hitch-stepped, image-phobic world of J-horror films like The Ring and Pulse , and bleak, hard-R extreme horror—combine to diabolical effect in Scott Derrickson’s Sinister , an occult thriller that scares with an absolute relentlessness.

  • Conclusion: Derrickson bounces back from his insipid redo of The Day The Earth Stood Still with an effective chiller that's got a skeleton or two in its closet.

  • Summary: You don’t always need to reinvent the horror wheel, and in a genre full of cube-pushers, Sinister spins like a buzz-saw. Burrowing under your skin further than The Conjuring , Scott Derrickson ( The Exorcism of Emily Rose ) contorts its many derivative horror elements into something freshly...
