Washed-up true-crime writer Ellison Oswalt finds a box of super 8 home movies that suggest the murder he is currently researching is the work of a serial killer whose work dates back to the 1960s.

Sinister was a movie that I was super stoked to watch. After watching this horror movie, I have to say I was very disappointed. I expected more scares than were delivered. I also felt that the horror film was over hyped and the trailer showed many of the best elements of the film.

Don’t get me wrong here, Ethan Hawk and the rest of the stars did a terrific job in portraying their characters but the movie just never delivered that extra something that it needed to make it a great horror movie but instead just remain an average film.

Bottom line; not currently on Netflix and should be low on your horror movie watch list.
