New Sinister Posters Online
Ethan Hawke vs. the Boogie-Man

31 May 2012  |  Written by Owen Williams

Continuing a recent trend for horror movie posters featuring girls against crumbling white walls, here's a new poster for Scott Derrickson's Sinister, starring Ethan Hawke. You have your choice of the static version below, or one of those newfangled motion posters. Either way, it's kinda bloody.

The film takes the old cynical-writer-meets-supernatural-mystery angle (think 1408, and plenty of others) with Hawke as a true-crime hack who moves into a house that was the site of an entire family's gruesome murder. He then discovers a box of films of other murders stowed in his charming new crib, and finds his ongoing investigation leading into paranormal territory and his own family in some serious danger. The entity revealed on the wall there is apparently referred to as Mr Boogie. We doubt that's a dance thing, somehow.

Derrickson cut his teeth on franchise sequels like Hellraiser: Inferno and Urban Legends: Final Cut, before branching out into The Exorcism Of Emily Rose and the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. He also contributed a screenplay draft to Atom Egoyan's The Devil's Knot.

Sinister has already played a few festivals and picked up some positive vibes, but still has some distance to creep before its proper US release date on October 5. We don't seem to have one for the UK so far, but an official website should be up and running soon.
