This shockingly immediate and critically acclaimed film from the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITYSINISTER follows a true crime novelist as he investigates the murder of the family who once lived in his new home. The deeper his obsession becomes, the more frightening revelations he discovers with each one delving he and his family into an unescapable supernatural nightmare.

Ethan Hawke stars alongside Vincent D'onofrio, Juliet Rylance and James Ransone in this dread-inducing new film from director Scott Derrickson and co-written by C. Robert Cargill.

"Anchored by a moody Ethan Hawke performance and classically unsettling scare tactics, this icy supernatural thriller...delivers on the promise of its title by boiling down its appeal to pure atmosphere." -Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"The rare horror movie that's just ingenious enough about stitching together everything it borrows to make its second-hand quality kind of fun...I knew perfectly well, after a while, what Sinister was going to scare me with. But I got scared anyway." -Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"Sinister is an undeniably scary movie, with performances adding enough human interest to give depth to the basic building blocks of horror." -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
