The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Sinister (2012)

Starring: Ethan Hawke, James Ransone,
Director: Scott Derrickson


Premise:
A true crime writer moves his family into the home where a family was murdered years earlier as he researches their story for his next book. He finds a box of movies suggesting the families murdered might be linked to a series of others by the same killer.

My Take:
A smart movie which lead to places I did not see coming (at least based on the trailer previews). Plus whenever a film can get me on a jump scare or two it has my attention. There are many scenes here which are subtle and so disturbingly creepy. Plus Ethan Hawke is fantastic as the man who willing to sacrifice anything for one more hit novel. A must see for horror fans. 

Rating: So Good
