Personal, understated, and surprisingly strange, Scott Derrickson's Sinister is one of the most compelling horror films of the past decade.
Sinister creates a fantastic horror atmosphere that will fill you with a sense of dread, but the film's stretched out mystery and awful soundtrack only serve to hold it back.
| Original Score: 3/5
Director Scott Derrickson's film never fails to impress.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The super-8 snuff movies are by far the best thing about Sinister; they're just so imaginatively horrible. Unfortunately, much of the rest of the film is disappointingly trite.
