Sinister (2012)

sinister“I like that you made the movies longer, they are better this way.” – Ashley

Number of Times Seen – 1 (26 Jan 2014)

Brief Synopsis – A true crime novel writer gets too involved in his new research topic and finds out that the murders were the work of a serial killer who has been killing for over 40 years.

My Take on it – I want to thank Brock of brockingmovies for recommending that I should watch this movie after he saw that I enjoyed The Purge (2013).

He has once again proven to me the reasons why I don’t like films from the horror genre.

I truly HATED this movie!!!

I didn’t hate it tho only for reasons you would think.  It’s not because it isn’t an interesting idea, but because it scared the crap out of me!  While I was watching it, I kept thinking that eventhough I’m 40 years old, I could get nightmares from this.

What’s ironic about that is that the writer C. Robert Cargill got the idea from a nightmare that he had after watching The Ring (2002).

The concept here is interesting, but I just didn’t like where they chose to go with it.

I can’t say that I enjoyed a single minute of this movie, but maybe it’s just because I don’t like or even understand the genre at all.  (and I have no problem with that).

I plan on trying to stay far away from this genre in the foreseeable future.

Bottom Line – More proof that horror isn’t worth watching IMHO.  Hated every minute of this movie unfortunately.

Rating – Razzie Worthy

  1. Nice review, but…well we’re just gonna have to disagree on this one. Hahaha. I tend to like the horror genre, so maybe that’s why I enjoyed this. The end does get a little bizarre, but this was actually one of my favorite horrors of the last few years.


  2. Nice review! Ah, I didn’t think this one was that bad! I had a good time with it. Not the greatest horror of all time but it was certainly not the worst. Pity you didn’t like it – but this is what I love about blogs, we all have a different opinion!
