  • Sinister started really nice and developed an creepy atmosphere, thanks to the home videos. But the ending just ruined it for me.

      Yeah I thought the ending really sucked as the direction of the entity became lame in the final 3rd after such a promising build up.

      It is creepy though and I notice a lot of casual film fans on my facebook state they've watched it and found it scary as hell so that makes me happy.

      • Yes the score is notable as well, definitely heightened the experience.

        • The ending seemed too precipitate, which fails to convince, and it leaves a bitter taste .. a disconnection at the end. Also when we finally see the face of Bughul or whatever his name was, the fear originated in the beginning, it vanished.

            The score was indeed rich and effective. I didn't know it was the same person who did Hellraiser. Some of you guys really know your shit.

            I felt like it would've been a tad more effective if we'd never really gotten a straight ahead look at Bughul. That it would work further against your psyche and fears if you had to just get glimpses of him, the same way nightmares work. I didn't think he looked bad, but the tingle I felt at the beginning of the movie did wear off.

              Christopher Young is a legend. I noticed him first with The Exorcsim Of Emily Rose. I can't sit through the whole score in one piece to this day, it is so damn eerie, scary and just damn effective.

              • I was really looking forward to this movie, I went to every first showing on Friday, Too my local cinema, even took the day of work, this was very first movie I have saw in Cinema this last year!

                Another horror movie shows too much in trailer, the most of scare scene were already seen in the trailer, it kinda takes the scare away from the movie, as we already seen it,

                There twos other scenes that thankfully were not in the trailer, one of them did make me Jump and there one scenes I found some what creepy.

                Normal I don't mind silly stuff, this movie really annoyed me in some parts, Main lead hears a loud noise but no ones else seem to hear it, even the next night, when he falls, makes noise and starts screaming really loud, No one else seem to here or come by after he fall thought the floor!

                The other thing that really annoyed me was the really loud shouting scenes, it was over the top and was not needed at all, my head started hurt!

                This movie as Nothing we not really see before in pass horror movies, For me this me kinda drag on a little, when we finally know the story.

                Then they rush the the ending as it's gets way too predicable, there one scenes that really reminded me of Insidious as well.

                talking about Insidious, I was not big fan of it but I Would watch that over this any day.

                5 out of 10

                  I agree that trailers show too much and spoil key moments, its especially bad with spoiling laughs in comedies e.g The Hangover 3 trailer has already ruined the laugh with the giraffe.

                  I pretty much avoid trailers now although sometimes it can't be helped.

                  • Hell yeah the soundtrack was awesome. Really atmospheric, frightening and lifted up the whole movie. Which I liked the first hour, including the gradually build up but I found the ending a big disappointment. You know [SPOILER]the kids and all[/SPOILER], not scary at all, on the contrary made me laugh a little when they were sssssisshing. Why oh why seemed to me like a consensus (don't know the right English word sorry) for the mainstream theatre audience. Too bad, the first hour was heading to a 8/10 in my view (then again I wasn't into the whole Insidious thing/hype either).

                      • I liked it. I actually had trouble sleeping after I saw it lol. I get the creeps when he sees that creepy masked face, when he looks through the film rolls... also the ending is really jumpy.

                            That was never going to happen, not with most of today's audience.

                            I didn't hate it, but I think it failed in the atmosphere scene. I mean, I know it tried, but to me it always either fell short, or over shot the mark. I didn't have a crept out feeling at all. And I was disappointed in that fact, the story was good enough to keep my attention though. I would have liked it if the atmosphere worked though.

                            The Women in Black remake I thought had a lot better atmosphere. That whole town was just creepy.

                              i agree that it would be effective but I watched a special showing of The Blair Witch Project and the people behind me said during the credits "didn't fuckin' see anything."

                                I think it depends basically on every movie and not as a general rule, ie sometimes you want and feel the need to see everything, every detail and other times you don't feel this need, but what works better it is what is suggested.

                                Where is the difference? .... Of how it is addressed and it present to us the subject, for example if in a movie the characters are seeing something that is happening and their expressions demonstrate a palpable feeling of terror, then you want to see what it is, what they are seeing, what is really happening in great detail.

                                On the contrary if the characters in a movie are as confused as oneself, and aren't sure what is happening, then the atmosphere and all the other details take on a critical role and can be more effective than seeing a giant monster with a bloody mouth.
