Some of the best thrillers are the ones where less is more. Session 9, The Hitcher, just a couple that come to mind. Those movies show you just enough to creep you out…then let your imagination fill in the blanks. That’s why SINISTER works on a creepy good level. To discuss why this movie works would give away the genuine chills that hit you at unexpected moments. Ethan Hawke is the audience as he finds answers to a family’s gruesome murder. His reactions mirror ours as the truth is uncovered one tiny shocking detail at a time. A slow boil to an explosive climax, SINISTER rises above what currently passes for a scary movie these days by actually being scary.
