Red band Sinister trailer delivers stronger film

Sinister.jpgI had been slightly dismissive of the film Sinister from previous trailers, although it starred Ethan Hawke and was written and directed by Scott Derrickson who gave us the excellent The Exorcism of Emily Rose (Filmstalker review) it didn't really grab me as anything new. Now I've seen this rather shocking and well deserving of the red band moniker trailer I have a different view.

Sinister looks powerful, shocking and if the review comments are to be believed, genuinely scary. Horror fans should be adding this to their watch list immediately.

Here's the blurb for Sinister in case you haven't heard of the film by now:

Sinister is a frightening new thriller from the producer of the Paranormal Activity films and the writer-director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.

The film looks dark and creepy throughout, but it's that closing image that has stayed with me and is slightly haunting. The collection of scenes and images throughout has been very well edited together and I think this is one unnerving trailer.

Here's the new Sinister trailer through TrailerAddict, and please be warned this is a Red Band trailer for certain, this is no MPAA shock to seeing a natural bit of flesh or slight reference to sex, there are some genuinely adult moments and I would class this as an eighteen and above only trailer:
