Weeknights after the movies Posted 10.15.12 by reelz
This October, horror movie fans get not one, but two supernatural horror movies to enjoy — the upcoming sequel Paranormal Activity 4 and Sinister. While horror fans are accustomed to flesh-and-blood killers like Friday the 13th's Jason and Halloween's Michael Myers (or, maybe not, considering they don't die very easily), both Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 represent the current shift in horror medium to the supernatural, due, in no small part, to the success of the Paranormal Activity franchise. Movie fans have already seen what can happen between a masked psychopath like Jason going up against a supernatural killer like Freddy in 2003's Freddy vs. Jason (sorry for the reminder), but what about the supernatural vs. the supernatural? With both Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 fighting for box office dominance this month, we decided to see which of the two supernatural entities was best — Sinister's soul-eating Bagul or Paranormal Activity's demon.

Another reason to avoid watching people's home videos.
Ethan Hawke isn't an actor known for horror movies and, in fact, the upcoming Sinister is his first. In August, Hawke admitted to MTV that "for years I never wanted to make one of these movies" but was convinced to do so die to the participation of director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose). "I met him and it was kind of obvious to me that he was a real filmmaker and he knew how to do it and he wanted somebody to give a performance in his film and I wanted to do that."
So far, it looks like critics agree, as various critical responses are filtered throughout the movie's red band trailer, released by Yahoo!. Hawke stars as a true-crime novelist who moves his family into a house where previously a family was gruesomely murdered by a supernatural creature called Bagul. Worse yet, Bagul exists within the photos and home-made films Hawke discovers and watches. Outside of some grisly and creepy images, the trailer isn't filled with much gore, but, be warned, it's still NSFW.catch the latest trailers here

What's creepier than moving your loved ones into a house where a family was brutally murdered? Finding a box of home movies in the house that chronicle the bloody murders of several families. That's the premise behind Sinister, director Scott Derrickson's first horror movie since The Exorcism of Emily Rose in 2005.
Ethan Hawke stars as Ellison, a true crime novelist struggling to find his next big story. When Ellison discovers the box of grisly home videos in his new home, he is at once repulsed and intrigued, initially thinking he may have stumbled upon a serial killer's collection. However, his investigation uncovers clues that the murderer may be a supernatural entity and that his own family might be its next victims. Vincent D’Onofrio, James Ransone, and Fred Dalton Thompson also star. watch the creepy trailer >> Posted 06.14.12 by BrentJS
