Sinister (Ethan Hawke) Trailer


Desperately in need of a best seller to revive his struggling career, true crime writer Ellison (Ethan Hawke), moves his family to the scene of his most recent story; the unsolved, gruesome murder of a loving, happy suburban family.

Shunned by the local community and strained by his obligations to his family, the discovery of a batch of home movies in the attic offers Ellison shocking proof to the crime he is investigating.

Ellison notices the same unidentified figure appearing in each of the 8mm films, leaving him convinced that all the incidents are linked by a truly bizarre connection.

As his investigations uncover the terrifying truth he starts to lose his grip on reality and it soon becomes clear that he is placing his own family in harm’s way.

Sinister will be premièring at this year’s Film4 FrightFest on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at 9pm with writer C. Robert Cargill in attendance. It’s arriving in UK cinemas nationwide on October 5 through Momentum Pictures.
