Sininster had every great intention on being a fantastic film. It had a decent villian, creepy kids, a good lead man, and a pretty decent twist. However the movie lacked scares required to be "scary"
The jump scares were predictable and although Mr. Boogie had a disturbing face, thats all he truly was. Ethan Hawkes performance was well under par. You would think with the back story given on his character, there would be more substance to his character, however he left a feeling of wanting in his performance.
The twist at the end (no spoilers given) could of been played out better if there wasn't a camera cut a way. If it would of stayed on the scene it would of pushed the film for what it was looking for.
all in all the movie is a good one time watch, but I wouldn't add it to my video library.
