  • 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.

  • 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.
