Sinister News Viral

Who doesn't like a little home town scare? This one will get you, if you're not paying attention. There's a new viral site for Scott Derrickson & Massawyrm's new film Sinister, which hits theaters this weekend, and it's rather creepy. The site makes a link to send to friends that opens a "news" article about a "Sinister Killing", with re-used text saying that "4 dismembered bodies were found in the backyard of a residential home" and so on. It's rather gruesome, but you can tell it's a bit creepy, cause even the news lady looks eerie. It's a freaky viral, but most of all a reminder that Sinister hits theaters this week if you're in the mood for horror.

If you haven't seen the latest red band trailer for Sinister, it's worth watching here. Read Jeremy's review.

Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still) directs Sinister which he also wrote along with newcomer C. Robert Cargill. Ethan Hawke stars as a struggling crime novelist whose desire for a new story leads him to the site of a horrific family murder. However, his investigation threatens to put his family in harms way as something still resides in the house that may be the key to learning the truth about the past murders. The cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Clare Foley, James Ransone and Fred Dalton Thompson. Summit currently has Sinister scheduled to arrive in theaters October 12th this fall. Freaky?

    The site generates a link to a fake newspage where one of the headlines is from today's actual news "Missing Girls Backpack Found" that links to the movie's page on Rotten Tomatoes. Classy.
