Sinister (2012)
IMDB- 6.9
Rottentomatoes- 62%
RJG Ratings- 85

A writer finds a box of shocking videos in his new house.

Starring- Ethan Hawke
Director- Scott Derrickson

Ethan Hawke gives a good performance.The supporting cast too are great.The movie centered around Ethan's character and he gives full justice to his role.

The story of Sinister isnt exactly a new concept ,but its a very disturbing movie to watch.The videos found are the highlight ,and they will definitely make you cringe in shock.On the downside ,the story doest fully explain itself and falls into a bit of cliche towards the end.

Direction was excellent.The entire movie's main attraction is the way its presented.The first half deals with slow horror ,and the second half used some fast horror techniques.The pacing of the movie was a bit slow in the start ,but it picks up soon and is intense till the end.

The music was certainly one of a kind.Its not the usual kind of scary tune ,its different and lends the movie a certain unique touch.It amps up the scary atmosphere of Sinister.

Overall ,Sinister isnt for the weak of heart.Its a very disturbing & excellent horror movie.

Acting- 4/5
Story- 4/5
Direction- 4.5/5
Horror- 5/5
Thriller- 5/5
