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. Sinister probably would have been better without its tendency to resort to cheap thrills some of the time, but the fundamentals in this film are quite strong and horror fans should certainly enjoy it.

  • Excerpt: Het is “found footage” films wat de klokt slaat in het horror genre sinds Paranormal Activity erin slaagde om een mega-succes to worden. Althans, zo lijkt het wel. Het nieuwste project in dit subgenre? Sinister, van de producer van Insidious en… Paranormal Activity! En toch. Sinister pakt het nét anders genoeg aan om toch wel origineel te blijven, ook al zien we eveneens invloeden van The Ring terugkomen.

  • 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. The Blu-ray arrives with an excellent, near-reference audio/video presentation that generates a fearsome experience.

  • 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. Derrickson previously directed The Exorcism Of Emily Rose , a hysterical demon-possession movie that turned a chilling true story—realized much more subtly a year later in the German film Requiem —into...

  • 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 freakish.

  • Excerpt: Griezelarij afgewisseld met dramascènes; SINISTER genoeg schitterend enge momenten om ons voor een lange tijd verzadigd te houden.

  • Excerpt: Bra skräckfilmer växer inte på träd och definitivt inte på svenska träd. Men så är Sinister inte speciellt svensk heller, så vi talar om amerikanska träd och från det första trädet vi får se hänger det en familj på ett halsstrypande sätt. Filmen börjar bang bong med en avrättning av otäck sort och så släpper känslan av obehag inte i första hand alls så länge som filmen pågår.

  • Conclusion: Kauhuelokuvat onnistuvat hyvin harvoin. Suurin syy on tietenkin vaativassa katsojassa: kaikenlaista pätkää on ehtinyt nähdä, jolloin vaikuttavaan katsomiskokemukseen vaaditaan jo aika paljon. Sinister kuitenkin onnistuu olemaan aidosti pelottava. Loppuratkaisu ei ehkä aivan täysin tyydytä, ja keskivaiheen kaavamaisuus puuduttaa, mutta varsinkin lisämateriaalit huomioiden Sinister on onnistunut julkaisu.
