‘Sinister’ may, at times, simply come off as another one of those clichéd horror movies that are often held back by their jumpscares. But along with that, the film also packs some surprisingly good plot twists and a terrifying overall atmosphere. Not to mention, Ethan Hawke‘s impeccable performance further heightens its “creep” factor. So if you haven’t seen it yet, you can check it out on all the streaming platforms we’ve mentioned below.
What is Sinister About?
‘Sinister’ revolves around a true-crime writer named Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke) who moves to a new home with his wife and kids. Unbeknownst to his family, the family that had previously lived there was murdered, all hung by ropes on a tree in their backyard. For his next novel, Ellison Oswalt intends to investigate this murder. But the deeper he delves into the mysteries of these murders, the more he realizes that all of these are somehow linked to many other cult-like murders that have previously taken place in several different similar households. Things get even creepier when he discovers several reels of Super 8 mm footage in his attic that have recorded murder footage depicting several of these families. Believing that all this could help him write his next bestseller, Ellison relentlessly digs deeper into them. Little does he realize that a supernatural force is tailing him.
