From the producer of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, and the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister stars Ethan Hawke as Ellison Osborne, a true-crime novelist hell-bent on uncovering the mysterious circumstances regarding a family’s grisly murder.
Sinister opens with Super 8 footage of a family standing under a tree, their hands and feet bound, with bags over their heads and nooses around their necks. Slowly, the family of four is lifted by their necks and strangled, their legs kicking for life, until they are dead.
