Horror movies you won’t want to watch alone: 10. Sinister
Apparently, Sinister was actually inspired by The Ring, which does make sense once you have actually watched it. The whole videotape angle definitely acts as a callback to the other movie, however, the fact that the videotape in Sinister is more of a snuff film certainly helps to change things up a bit.
Ethan Hawke plays a true-crime author who moves his family to a new home that has a very tragic and evil history. It seems that some rather grisly murders took place in this house and they were all caught on film.
Now, an entity is looking to continue the trend of murder and horror in this house, which means that this family is far from safe. And considering the entity is associated with a pagan deity, and these murders are all part of some obscure cult ritual, the danger and horror is something that really comes to life. But perhaps the most terrifying aspect of this entire story is who ends up being the real killer in every case (even if there is a possession taking place).
From ghostly figures going from a film reel to right in front of you, Sinister lives up to its name.
This film is dramatic and grisly with scenes that will definitely leave you wishing you were not alone. In fact, I would say this is another nightmare-inducing movie.
