Check out the frightening new red-band trailer for Sinister with Ethan Hawke
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.
