As the official theatrical release date of October 5th creeps ever closer, the brand new UK-exclusive quad poster for Scott Derrickson’s spookily promising Sinister has been unveiled. Peek through your fingers if you must… it’s okay, we don’t judge.
From a script by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, the film stars Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Juliet Rylance, Fred Dalton Thompson, and James Ransone.
Don’t buy a house where the previous family was hanged, drowned, incinerated, or otherwise murdered unless you have the strongest of constitutions. True crime writer Ellison Oswald (Hawke) has made a career out of exposing police mistakes, and now he’s investigating a shocking small-town death first-hand by moving into the house where it actually took place. But strange occurrences start happening, and Ellison becomes convinced the figure he sees lurking in some old home movies he discovers is the ancient occult “eater of children” demon. The scares are not just intense but unyielding in this compelling horror yarn from The Exorcism of Emily Rose director Scott Derrickson. Impressive in its restraint during quieter moments, and powerfully disturbing at its nastiest, Sinister is a very creepy, darkly entertaining terror tale. And Ethan Hawke shines as the agonized writer whose deteriorating state of his mind shatters everything he holds dear.
Sinister’s UK premiere will take place on August 26th as part of the 2012 Film4 FrightFest, but you can also keep up-to-date with UK release developments on the Sinister UK Facebook page and, of course, right here as we have it.
