Star of SINISTER, Ethan Hawkes continues his streak of being (for me) an actor to avoid, in movies to avoid. But in his partial defense the brain-dead story-arc he is given to follow would keep any actor from performing credibly [SPOILERS: But honestly this film is too rotten to spoil any worse :). But here is what passes for a plot. A seeming serial killer leaves evidence of his slaughters in the home of his latest victims, the home the protagonist decides to buy, and not only does this protagonist, a failing true-crime writer, think it is feasible to keep evidence of mass murder from the police, he also thinks nothing of keeping his family in a house that there is all evidence said mass-murderer will return to. Like I said with a plot like that, it arrives spoiled. :)]
Just slap “insult to intelligence” on this film and move on.
SINISTER goes beyond stupid, to really being an insult to the viewer’s wit, and a waste of the viewer’s time. And on top of that the direction is so uninspired and tepid, the scenes with the prancing children shushing people look like the rushes of a bad home movie, impossible to take seriously, or be anything but silly.
Final Verdict: Stick with INSIDIOUS and avoid SINISTER!
