Sinister is a great horror movie, which u can't define in one specific genre. It's more a small combination of a ghost, monster and serial killer movie, which makes it even more frightening. Ethan Hawke, who plays a crime writer, is really good in this movie and exudes credibility. This movie has a great line of sustaining tension, which deflates for a while and rises back up. It also has a few predictable jump scares, and even if it's predictable at times, it will scare you! Sinister is definitely a creepy and disturbing horror movie, which you should watch!
True-crime writer Ellison Oswalt moves himself and his family into a house where a horrific crime took place earlier, but his family doesn't know. He begins researching the crime so that he can write a new book about it to help his flailing career. He uses some "snuff" film footage he finds in the house to help him in his research, but he soon finds more than he bargained for. There is a figure in each of the films but who or what is it? As a result, his family start to suffer (as does he) and things take a turn for the worst. Will they survive?
