The trailer for the horror film Sinister was released online. It stars Ethan Hawke as a crime novelist Ellison, who moves with his wife and children into a new home. He hopes the new setting will help inspire him with a new book. Sounds pretty sinister, huh? Okay, okay, not just yet — Ellison discovers old films in the attic that shows previous families of the house and their murders.
Ellison notices a symbol that connects the murders, which ends up belonging to the pagan deity, Bagul. The deity uses pictures and footage of himself as gateways from his world into ours. Naturally, Bagul begins to stalk Ellison and his family.
It’s a unique premise; and having Ethan Hawke star doesn’t hurt. So I’m definitely looking forward to the movie.
Sinister terrorizes theaters October 5.
