Scary in parts but I expected scarier. This is more of a psychological then Saw like horror. Compareable to the Shining. B-,
This review is from: Sinister [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
"Do you understand what you've done this time? The kind of jeopardy you've put your children in? Your marriage?" Ellison Oswalt (Hawke) is a true crime author doing research for his next book. Wanting to be as accurate as possible he moves him and his family into a house where the crime took place. He finds "snuff" films in the house and begins to watch them when he notices a strange figure in each of them. The more he sees the more terror his family goes through. I will start be letting you know what kind of movies scare me. To me Poltergeist is the scariest movie but I also watched it when I was like 8. Recently the Exorcism of Emily Rose and Insidious really scared me. I say that to tell you that this movie didn't really scare me like I expected. The movie is more psychological then horror but it does have some definite scary parts to it. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I was thinking it was going to be scarier then it was. I would compare the horror in this to the Shining more then any other movie. Overall, not bad but I expected something different, more scary. I did like the ending though. I give it a B-.
