This movie is super scary. I'm 16 and i remember wanting to see this when it first came out 2 years ago. I'm glad i didn't. Some of the scenes are very realistic and scary. There's one scene where one of the missing children's face appears behind the main character. This scene is frightening. I watch these kind of movies and this is the only one that made me freak out. Bughuul (the monster) looks suspiciously like Mick from the band Slipknot.

Daft. That's the word for a film like SINISTER, one that doesn't feel like it put any effort into its development. It's films like SINISTER that diminish the horror genre as a whole, spitting in the faces of filmmakers like Spielberg and Hitchcock, who broke ground with JAWS and PSYCHO, respectively. This? Pfft. Don't waste your time. SINISTER is a disaster. I don't recommend it.

This really really scared me..i watch horror movies all the time and none of them have really shook me like this one did. Its mentally disturbing, and is very well done.

I LOVE love love this movie. It is scary and suspenseful, full of tension and just a darn good story. It terrified me (which is not easily done!) I even bought a copy of it for my very own!!! Yeah, it's that good.

Very scary, very well done, with a minimum of actual gore. Best horror film I've seen in many years.

Horror movies have been my favorite my entire life, but this was the first movie to EVER scare me- during and even days after I watched it! While there are parts of it that feature typical horror movie material, they're enhanced in a way that seems new. There are also some unique twists and scares that make it fantastic. I've seen it four times and it STILL spooks me a little.

scared me a few times,although i figured it out before the ending as most do.

I thought this was a big yawn. Fell back on the typical "walking around the house at night, down long corridors without turning on the lights" thing. Couple of scary attic scenes and a couple of scary viewing of the old film reels found in house scenes, but otherwise not a blood curdling classic to go crying for mama about. Ethan Hawke must be hard up for work.

I really enjoyed this horror since it didn't shy away from showing disturbing images and it was defiantly scary.

On the down-side It was pretty predictable and some characters could have been a little more developed or realistic as well as the "monster" suspiciously looked a lot like a member off Slipknot.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good.Very predictable. Very boring movie. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

A writer by trying to solve a mystery unwittingly causes more harm then good.
