    saw it on saturday night, great crowd. pretty solid, entertaining, dark as fuck [SPOILER]especially the ending; it's still kind of nagging at me. the other night, while falling asleep i was thinking about the end and the lawn mower scene, then the dog moved, rattling her caller, and i kind of awoke with a start[/SPOILER]. it's interesting to see modern horror movie cliches wrought by movies like the sixth sense, recent possession movies, and japanese horror and (especially) their american remakes, combined into something that pulls on a lot of horror genres. the super 8 stuff i thought was awesome, i actually jumped a few times internally, and the screams of the "straight" audience, followed by their nervous laughter, was priceless. i recommend it.

      I love how a good movie theater crowd can make your movie watching experience just that much better. I'm looking forward to watching this flick!

        Thought it was crap. 90 minutes of shitty jump scares and bad makeup. The idea is cool and Hawke is good in his role but yea, the majority of the movie blew.

                    Just saw this on EP. I fucking hate these type of films, which a passion so great I'd sacrifice children to dodge watching one.

                    However this looks rather good, as ashamed to admit it as I am. I like how the Found Footage doesn't act as the film itself, but as an aspect in it. Maybe that's why I'm not against the idea so much, the 'ghost' like figure looks pretty bad ass too. Only time will tell if it's good, given my feelings on this type of genre my exceptions are pretty fucking low, so that'll hopefully work for it.

                      Video Review of Sinister

                      Horror Guru and I just did a Friday Night Fright Flicks episode on Sinister. Our opinion was very divided on this movie.

                            I thought this movie sucked pretty hard, all it there was is jump scares and a whole hell of a lot of nothing ever paying off or any events happening.

                            I love myself a good slow burner, but this was not one for me at all.

                              Interesting, but I very strongly disagree. This is one of the best modern horror films out there in my opinion. Some truly frightening scenes and the atmosphere is extremely creepy and haunting. This was a film that I won't soon forget.

                              Also.... imo, there was plenty of pay off and the ending was great.

                                Yeah that's pretty much where I was, obviously Horror Guru disagreed.
