Sinister - Trailer
Director Scott DerricksonYear 2012Genre(s) Horror, Suspense
Ellison is an aspiring true-crime writer who decides to move his family into the house where a family of four were brutally murdered nine months previous in order to work on his next novel which he is determined will be a success. When Ellison takes a visit to the attic, he finds, in the center of the floor, a single box with a movie projector and several film reels tucked inside. The films have titles such as 'BBQ '79' and 'Family Hanging Out '11' - the latter is the most recent so Ellison sets it up on the projector. The clip shows the family that were recently murdered enjoying one another's company before cutting to an image of the four of them when they killed. Shocked, Ellison passes the videos on to the police to investigate further and notices the only similarity between all the murders of different families in the house on each of the film reels is a recurring symbol which he later discovers is the mark of a pagan deity named Bagul who he is told feeds on the souls of children. Legend has it that children who see the image of Bagul are vulnerable to his attack because he is alive through his own image. When he begins to target Ellison's family, he realises he must escape before they become the next victims.
From the producer of 'Paranormal Activity' and 'Insidious', this chilling horror is set to receive nothing short of the acclaim that both those films have received. 'Sinister' is directed by supernatural movie pro Scott Derrickson ('The Exorcism of Emily Rose', 'The Day the Earth Stood Still') who also co-wrote the movie with C. Robert Cargill. It will hit UK cinemas on October 5th 2012.
