Sinister

de Scott Derrickson

Trailer

Synopsis

Ten years ago, Ellison savored the sweet taste of success. His first book was a best-seller acclaimed by the general public and critics, but none of his subsequent work has been anywhere near as successful. Even so, Ellison doesn’t lose hope; he knows he´s onto something good. He is investigating the death of a family, and to be able to study the case in more depth, he moves into the house where they used to live. There he finds a box fill of home movies which conceal images of pain and violence and, also, a demonic presence crouching between the frames. The director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose brings us an unsettling tale, where the main theme is Evil, in its blackest dimension.
