Trailer: 'Sinister'

If you're like me, you are sick of seeing the words "From the producer of Paranormal Activity" but here is yet another one for the list. Sinister was written and directed by Scott Derrickson, whose work ranges from Urban Legends: Final Cut to The Exorcism of Emily Rose, so it's difficult to predict which direction this one will go. Ethan Hawke stars as a writer who moves his family into a creepy house (gee, where have I heard this before?) and uncovers something supernatural about the deaths of the previous owners.

The film reel scenes remind me an awful lot of Session 9, which is a concern. I could see this one's ending going in a very similar direction. I am also bothered by the incredibly lazy title which clearly rips off Insidious. Aside from that, and a couple cheap jump scares, the trailer looks pretty good. I confess, parts of this sorta scared the bejesus out of me already, and that's no easy task. What say you - will you give this one a shot?
