SINISTER

I have always liked Ethan Hawke’s work. For the most part he’s pretty good in most things, and in sinister, this is no exception. Sinister is an excellent psychological horror film that isn’t as interested in blood and guts as it is in mind screwing you.

The premise seems predictable because even if you know what is going to happen, you will most likely be scared up to the moment leading to it. You may not be necessarily scared of what you see on the screen but what might come on the screen and that makes a big difference.

sinister-criticaOne thing I find unique about this particular horror film is that it does actually focus on plot and It is to put it simply, terrifying so if you’re looking for one of those sort of generic fun scary movies then sinister is not for you, as it is genuinely disturbing within and that will stick with you for days after.
