Lost in Previews: Sinister

Sinister was one of the secret screenings at SXSW Film Festival this year.  Today, the trailer came online to reveal how scary this film is.  The film revolves around a family moving into a house where the previous family had died.  A box of old home movies is discovered in the attic and they reveal a sort of ghost-like devil character who eats the souls of children.  His gateway into the new family are these home movies.  It looks a little creepy.  The film stars Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Clare Foley, James Ransone, Fred Dalton Thompson, Michael Hall D’Addario, and Juliet Rylance.  The film is written and directed by Scott Derrickson.

“Sinister is a frightening new thriller from the producer of the Paranormal Activity films and the writer-director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.”

Sinister is in theatres October 5, 2012.
