True-crime writer Ellison Oswald is in a slump; he hasn't had a best seller in more than 10 years and is becoming increasingly desperate for a hit. So, when he discovers the existence of a snuff film showing the deaths of a family, he vows to solve the mystery. He moves his own family into the victims' home and gets to work. However, when old film footage and other clues hint at the presence of a supernatural force, Ellison learns that living in the house may be fatal.

Decent at keeping up the suspense, but by all means don't watch the trailer. It tells the entire story.

I love watching movies that make me feel things and nothing does it better than horror. The first half of Sinister was genuinely unsettling and created a very tense atmosphere. The second half was a bit of a letdown as they over explained and tried to show every loose thread being wrapped up. Heart rate is my favorite way to measure how frightening a horror movie is. Resting: 58 Average during Sinister: 91 Peak during Sinister: 122 Scare rating: 8/10

Hits an absurdly high number of horror clichés, but manages to do it in a pretty successful manner. Features many more laugh out moments than you might expect from a horror of this type. Not sure if that's a pro or a con.

_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give More
