Scott Derrickson's new horror flick SINISTER, starring Ethan Hawke, has a brand new red-band trailer here to scare the crap out of you. It's a minimalist trailer with no dialogue spoken, only images and sound, which makes it that much more spooky and hair-raising.† It's a tactic rarely used in promoting a film, so I give props to whoever decided to go this route as it makes for some really fun and frightening stuff.

Turn out the lights and hit play:

I have to admit, I'm not a huge horror guy.† I like the genre, but I certainly don't catch every single horror film that hits the street. However, SINISTER looks like one of the few I'll catch and probably sleep with a gun under my pillow for weeks.† To me, if something that extreme happens, then a horror movie has done its job, which is both to entertain and to scare the living shit out of you.† Let's hope SINISTER can accomplish that.

Here's the synopsis:

A true crime novelist (Ethan Hawke) struggling to find his next big story, moves his family into a house where the horrific murder of an entire family took place.† But after finding a box of home videos in which other families are also brutally murdered, his investigation leads him to a supernatural entity that may be placing his own family in harmís way.

SINISTER gets its spook on October 12, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: What's the most important ingredient for a good horror film? The antagonist? The setting? The protagonist? The gore? The lack of gore? Sure, you always need a mix of those things, but what's the most important?

Holy shit!

Just when I thought I was done with horror movies, this comes outta nowhere! This trailer actually gave me goosebumps, something that no horror movie has done to me for such a long time.

Extra Tidbit: I think it's gotta be both the protagonist and antagonist. On one hand, that antagonist has to be insidious, unrelenting, and pretty much unstoppable, to the point of bringing the poor victims to despair. At the same time, you need your protagonists to be well-developed and likeable, otherwise

This movie looks very good. It has been a while since I have seen a truly good horror movie. So far all the reviews are positive. I would love to see this in theaters but I know the crowd that will be there. I refuse to sit with teenage douche bags talking and screaming throughout the movie. Unfortunately I will be waiting for DVD or a couple weeks after release on a Sunday afternoon.

Couldn't have said it any better myself.
