October is slowly but surely creeping up on us (“139 days till Hall-o-ween, 130 days till Hall-o-ween Silver Shamrock!”) and to tide us over to the best month of the year Summit has just released the trailer for Scott Derickson’s (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) upcoming SINISTER, which in it’s two minute runtime is filled with a slew of terrifying imagery that will legitimately keep you up tonight. Quite an accomplishment when the current horror market is flooded with instantly forgettable shock-a-minute jump scares. The reception that poured out of the secret midnight screening from this years past Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX was largely positive, with even the most hardened horror fans falling victim to the onscreen terror. Check out the trailer we’ve included below for a taste of what’s to come! Be warned though, it’s fucking scary!
Still here? Did your pants make it out unscathed from urine? I think we can all agree that this looks like terror on a white-knuckle scale level. We still have a four month wait till it’s October 5th release date but from the looks of it, this will be well worth it. Written by film critic turned screenwriter C. Robert Cargill, SINISTER stars Ethan Hawke and is produced by Insidious & Paranormal Activity‘s Jason Blum and will feature an expectedly seat jumping score from Christopher Young (Hellbound: Hellraiser II, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge)! Look for SINISTER to haunt your local cinema October 5th!
Synopsis: “Found footage helps a true-crime novelist realize how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity.“
