Review: SINISTER 2

Scott Derrickson’s 2012 shocker SINISTER was a surprise hit, telling a grim story about a true crime author moving his family into a crime scene and eventually opening up a Pandora’s box of evil in the form of a film projector and a boogieman that lived inside of it. It was an in your face film, […]
