Rated 5 out of 5 by HorrorFreak All Hail Sinister!
Ethan Hawke stars in this new horror film from the makers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious that proves to be much, much scarier than both of these movies! The film follows a fairly standard premise in which a family moves into a new house where something isn't quite right. However, Sinister manages to pulls this off in a fresh and genuinely terrifying way that'll send you shivering behind your pillow!
Director Scott Derrikson, manages to grab you by the gut instantly with the very opening shot of the film. Bleak and disturbing, from the first few frames you know you're about to watch something truly scary and boy does it deliver! With it's perfect blend of gruesome shock horror, nail-shredding tension, jump scares, the creepy atmosphere and the unnerving plot twists that'll throw you into a fit of fearsome wobbles, Sinister is not only a brilliant horror film, but also an incredibly well made film.
An excellent cast that shows off Ethan Hawke in his finest role yet! I cannot recommend this film enough - buy it now and prepare to be scared!
In a few years time, I have no doubt that Sinister will be seen as a classic of the genre. One of this decades greatest horror movies! I saw it in the cinemas three times - it was that good!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daz2013 very poor
This is not even a proper film, let alone a horror. Totally pathetic, Chernobyl diaries is much better than this failure.
