‘Sinister’ Gets a Red Band Trailer

Sinister
Summit

It’s that time of the year where scary movies begin to descend on theaters in anticipation of Halloween. One of the most promising this year is ‘Sinister,‘ which stars Ethan Hawke, and it doesn’t rely on found footage for the entire movie. Now there’s a red band trailer for the film, and it sells the film’s scares fairly well.

The film screened at SXSW, which is why it’s filled with critics quotes from some familiar names. What’s nice about the trailer is that it doesn’t feature endless exposition to tell us what’s going on, in fact it features no exposition whatsoever. And by conveying the plot without dialogue (Hawke finds some old family films which end up being possessed) it builds up a sense of the film’s tone, which is all important when it comes to horror movies.

Sinister is scheduled to open October 12. Here’s the synopsis:

SINISTER is a frightening new thriller from the producer of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY films and the writer-director of THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE. Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror.

And here’s the trailer:
