Sinister in February

News
Momentum Pictures have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Sinister on 11 February 2013. Ethan Hawke stars in this supernatural horror directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose).

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.

Extras include:
  • Director's Commentary
  • Commentary with Writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill
  • True Crime Authors Feature
  • Living in a House of Death Feature
  • Fear Experiment
  • Trailer

About Dave Foster
Dave has been loitering the virtual halls of TDF for a decade now and the majority of that time has been spent as Editor of the Home Cinema section (formerly DVDTimes). He doesn't contribute reviews anywhere near as much as he once did (or indeed would like to) but when he does it will invariably be something in the anime or Asian film area.
